(Gnarly, dude! Now, I’m totally stoked. Yo! It’s harder than it looks, when you don’t know what you’re doing! Like most things in life. But, what up widdat bogus skinny stick, bra??? I can dig old school, but that looks like he’s holding a striped 2″x4″. You’d have to be a Jedi-Master surfing GOD to ride that thing. Easy there, big Kahuna. JKLOL!
All the clue words jumped off the page, for me, this morning! It looks like “stinky” is going to be a new addition to the ralis95 clue word database. I like “usurp”. It’s a fairly unusual word, but it’s kind of hard to hide it in a jumble. For a short answer, especially, I thought the answer letter layout was excellent! Really primo stuff. And, of course, it’s a great cartoon. Skinny board and all! That might be one of the tiniest sinking sailboats, on the horizon, that Jeff has ever used! Be well and do good. Mahalo aloha, friends.) — YUR
