One of the more ridiculous conspiracy theories going around regarding Jeffrey Epstein’s “suicide” is that he already knew the answer of the next five ScuttleButton puzzles and was threatening to reveal them. This, of course, is preposterous. But that doesn’t keep you from solving this one.
How to Play
ScuttleButton, as you may know, is that weekly waste-of-time exercise where we post a vertical sequence of campaign buttons. Your job is to take one word (or concept) per button and add ’em up to arrive at a famous name or familiar expression. Guess the correct phrase and you could be the proud winner of the coveted Political Junkie button!
Enter your submission using the convenient submission form below, or email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. You must include your name and city/state to be eligible.
Pride/Biden President — 2020 Joe Biden button supporting gay rights.
Here Comes the Sun/Tanning Salon — Whatever.
B-4 Lettieri Freeholder — New Jersey candidate.
Jennings for Governor/Uff Da! — Once again, this Minnesota Republican’s button comes in handy.
Hall for Governor — Oklahoma Democrat.
So, when you combine Pride + Comes +B-4 + Uff + Hall, you kinda get …
Pride Comes Before a Fall. Which is either in the King James Version of the Bible, or the Ken Rudin Version.
And the randomly selected winner is … James Ognibene of Marrero, La. James wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
