Visual Description:  No love lost at the law office.

GENAT  =  AGENT,  FOCFS  =  SCOFF,  FCEEDT  =  DEFECT,  NOYKEM  =  MONKEY   —   Giving us:  AGTSOFEFCMEY

Clue/Question:  The attorney said this after her co-worker harassed her about her work.

Answer:  GET OFF MY CASE

(I think this one might have made a good Unclerave’s Wiseguy of the Day contest.  Good thing for you guys that I already got that nonsense out of my system!  Great jumbling of the clue words.  We actually had two brand new clue words today, in “scoff” and “monkey”.  The ralis95 clue word database is going to burst its borders!  I really enjoyed the answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious.  Nice cartoon, with an early ’80s looking lawyer.  Sort of reminiscent of the Gary Cole character in Office Space . . . minus the glasses, of course.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I noticed that too, Paul. I think Hoyt gets that way sometimes. Not too long ago we had INJECT followed by INFECT. Or was it INDUCT followed by DEDUCT? Whatever. Good eye, pahdnah!

    Thanks, Wimpy! You too. Preseason games are mainly for experimentation and evaluation. As long as no one gets injured the coaches don’t get too worked up over the score. Of course, you’d always prefer to say this after you’ve won . . .
