(Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Answer:  ALL RELATIVE

(Clap, clap, clap!  Good answer!  Good Answer!  What a popular, dumb-ass show that is!  Half of the time, I’m usually asking myself:  What kind of bozos were in that audience when they surveyed that question?  But, the show isn’t about real knowledge, or intelligence.  It’s more like the old Dating Game, or Match Game.  The set up is more to generate laughs.  It’s just light-hearted entertainment.  It’s certainly no Jumble!

And, speaking of the Jumble, there were no new clue words today.  And, only the jumbles for “stall” and “figure” were new.  Hoyt did a great job with the answer letter layout though.  The cartoon is pretty funny.  It looks like the dads, up top, might get into it as well.  Somebody better pick up that spatula.  Looks like the burgers and dogs are starting to burn!  Be well and enjoy this Labor Day weekend.  Drive safely and try to do good.  If some jerk tries to cut in from the shoulder on you . . . just let him.  There’s just no payoff to road rage, anyway.  I let some bozo get my goat on the Garden State Parkway yesterday.  Totally different situation.  Immediately afterwards, I felt like such an ass.  Take care, friends.)   —   YUR

(Beautiful!  Man on the moon.  Probably, the most celebrated accomplishment of our lifetime.  I miss those days of lift-offs, orbiting, spacewalks, and re-entries.  There was nothing so relieving as watching a successful splashdown.  Our astronauts were true pioneers and real American heroes.  I think the abundance of Sci-fi has kind of ruined things for the younger generations.  They don’t seem to appreciate all the sacrifice that went into getting us to the moon.  It’s not their fault though.  Our government kind of dropped the ball on keeping the space program in the public eye.  No doubt that was by design though.  For the most part, I don’t think they really want us to know that much of what they do up there.  Too bad.  I miss all the wonder.

No new clue words today.  All the jumbling appears to be new though.  The only one that hung me up, at all, was “indoor”.  Great job on the answer letter layout too.  And, a fine Jeff Knurek cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Yeah.  A free falling out!  That’s one of my favorite Tom Petty songs:  Free Falling!  Who just said:  Who cares?  Thirty lashes with a wet noodle for you!  I once told a co-worker that Tom Petty was the son of race car driver, Richard Petty.  He either believed me, or he did a fine job in humoring me.  Either way, I was just blowing smoke.  They are not related.

There were no new clue words today.  Three of the clue word jumblings were new though.  With only the one for “fourth” being used before.  It’s always written numbers that give me a little trouble.  Must be a verbal vs. math kind of thing.  The answer letter layout was marvelously cryptic.  If you couldn’t get the answer from all the narrative and the great cartoon, then this answer letter layout would have further stumped you.  Jeff’s cartoon did a fantastic job of depicting sky diving.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(To many people graffiti is an art form, just like mime.  To others both are a crime!   I think we have a new clue word in “neatly”.  It’s not on my soft copy, or hard copy, ralis95 clue word database.  All of the jumbling appears to be new.  The answer letter layout is first rate.  Nothing obvious about it, at all.  And, the cartoon does a good job of setting up the pun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Now THAT is a fun pun, and a great Jumble!  The clue words were all tried and true, but each jumbling appears to be new.  The answer letter layout was not obvious, even if the answer was . . . fairly.  But, the best part is the cartoon.  The hillbilly Cyclops, sitting in his lawn-chair, amongst his overgrown lawn, drinking beers, and throwing the empties on the ground.  And, a broken down chariot on his lawn.  Not quite sure what that is stacked to his right rear.  Maybe sections of columns?  And Medusa, with her snake hair.  Is it only mortals who will turn to stone, when they gaze upon her?  And of course, the Centaur.  Does his neighborhood association make him pick up after himself?  Lots of fun with today’s cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Cornets are also popular in France!  But, the gag is clearly French Horns.  No new clue words.  All but “rofey” are new jumbles though.  The answer letter layout is another fine jumble.  It gives away nothing.  The question and cartoon make the answer pretty obvious though.  All you see are french horns!  I like La Tour Eiffel in the background, and the snootiness of the salesclerk.  I wonder if this is a young Dizzy Gillespie?  Could be!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  TEAMING WITH PEOPLE

(Wow!  A 17 letter answer.  That is pretty big.  None of the clue words are new today, but I think all of the jumbling is.  They were all jumbled well, but the only one I had any real difficulty in getting was”palace”.  The answer letter layout was wonderfully cryptic.  At first I was a bit stumped.  But, after I paid more attention to the answer blocks I quickly decided the middle word was WITH.  Then the word PEOPLE came into view.  When I wrote out the remaining letters – TAENMIG – I was able to figure out TEAMING, which is a homophone of TEEMING, which makes the answer a valid pun.  Fun cartoon.  Great Sunday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
