Answer:  GUEST-IMATED

(A wonderfully stinky pun, starring our two favorite word-nerds, Hoyt and Knurek!  None of the clue words are new, but three of the jumbles were new, to me.  They all came to me immediately.  Yay, Rave!  The answer letter layout was another great jumble.  It didn’t give the answer away.  The self-promoting cartoon is very amusing.  They do have various regional events, I think.  Our boys can tell you when and where.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  NICE JESTER

(Si!  And, that was a very nice gesture!  It’s kind of rare to see a Jumble that deals with kindness.  I like it.  Plus, the pun works for me.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumblings were new.  The answer letter layout is nice and cryptic.  And, the cartoon does a great job of setting the tone.  Enjoy the rest of your day, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WORD OF MOUTH

(Not a pad bun . . . er, bad pun.  All the tried and true clue words were jumbled nicely, and newly, today.  The answer letter layout is a thing of beauty.  If you weren’t able to pick up on the gag, from the cartoon and the clue/question, you might have had some difficulty in solving this, from the answer letter layout alone.  Fortunately, I am an idiom savant!  The cartoon was fun.  I always like it when Jeff puts his partner, David, in it.  And, by partner I don’t mean “partner”.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that!  I just meant the guy he does the Jumble with.  I guess Jeff is also featuring a friend named Matt, who happens to be a dentist.  Which reminds me, I think I have to call my endodontist soon.  I’ve got another tooth/crown that’s sensitive to cold.  At least I’ll get to see Doris again.  Hey!  For that guy out there who once questioned my *sensitivity*, I’ll have you know that I am extra sensitive.  Last month they told me that normally a root canal consists of deadening the three nerves of the tooth.  But, my tooth had FIVE nerves!  So, there.  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Pretending to know everything closes the door to finding out what’s really out there.”   —   Neil deGrasse Tyson

(Unfortunately, far too many people are all too comfortable in thinking that they already have the answers.  What’s worse is when they resent those of us who are seeking rational answers.  Don’t let that kind of mentality hinder your quest for actuality.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
