I'm feeling a bit silly, but I'm having a heck of a time figuring out a word puzzle that was in the newspaper.

These puzzles are in the daily paper that my father receives, and he sometimes saves them for me whenever I travel to visit him. And naturally, the part of the newspaper that contained the answer is nowhere to be found.

The object of the puzzle is to figure out a (supposedly) common phrase based upon how the lettering and such is presented.

For example: OholeNE <--- The answer to this would be the golf term "a hole in one".


Anyway, below is the one that has me stumped. I even tried a google reverse image search with no luck.


Any help with solving it will be much appreciated!



You serious, Clark?

Jersey is a breed of cows. One of the more populous dairy cows named for the island of Jersey, from which, I assume, New Jersey came upon its name. A neighboring island is Guernsey, also the name of a breed of cows.
