I would like to withdraw my name from consideration to be Labor Secretary because it’s clear I didn’t spend much labor in putting together this week’s easy ScuttleButton puzzle.
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.
A — This often used button was obtained from an Anarchist book store in NYC in the early 1970s.
Giants/Willie Mays — Yes, once again, violating ScuttleButton rules by using a baseball card. But Opening Day is coming soon!
Ing on green button — A clever rebus in itself, this is for Alaska Sen. Ernest Gruening (pronounced Green-ing) from 1968.
Grace Slick — The lead singer of Jefferson Airplane.
So, when you combine A + Mays + Ing + Grace, it shouldn’t be too hard to come up with …
Amazing Grace. The Christian hymn from the late 1700s.
And the randomly selected winner is … Robert Marlow of Lavallette, N.J.
