(Very nice puzzle, and a great little pun. I only just got it now, folks. No new clue words, but they were all jumbled really well. I really liked “disown”, even though we’ve had the very same jumbling before. The answer letter layout was good, not great, but I’m too tired to figure out how it could have been better. Fine cartoon! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

(Excellent! Selling you some crap you don’t want, surveys, politicking, and collection calls – they all come around the dinner hour. The worst ones though are the robo-dialed calls. You pick up the call, in good faith, with a cheery HELLO!, and all you receive is either an extremely pregnant pause, or a recording that says: All of our representatives are busy. Please hold for the next available . . . You have the nerve to bug me during my dinner, and there’s not even a live voice on the other end??? That is the pinnacle of rudeness. Those A-holes get hung up on, immediately! Live voice/no delay . . . no problem. At least I’ll hear them out long enough to tell them to call back. It’s crap like this computer automation that makes me say that Ted Kaczynski was right! I could go on for hours, but I’ll stop right here.
Good pun, though! We actually have a new word for the ralis95 clue word database, in “fresh”. Can you believe it? Fresh??? Ya never know. I liked the jumbling of “influx”. The answer letter layout was fantastic. Nothing obvious in there. And, a nice job conveying the family’s annoyance! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

There was nothing given away in this layout. Kind of a wacky cartoon. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
