(Cute. We haven’t had a Cyclops Jumble in quite a while. Oh, ralis95! We have a new clue word for you to add to your database. It’s “bypass”. The overall jumbling of the clue words was great. It took me a few looks to get “usher”, but the others came to me instantly. The answer letter layout was pretty cool. The cartoon is really funny. Mama Cyclops is holding an issue of I Magazine! There is a club hanging over the columned doorway, and our hero is talking about “going clubbing”. Reminds me of an ex-coworker/buddy of mine, Bob, who always used to make fun of a Brooklyn girl, named Cecilia, who used to talk about “going clubbing”. He’d make the same joke about using an actual club, like in the cartoon. Bob is a no nonsense kind of Jersey guy, who always took issue with the Brooklyn/Long Island kind of lifestyle. I need to reconnect with him. I haven’t thought about Cecilia in years. We used to call her Cecil B., due to her last name being similar to DeMille. She was a cute kid, who at the time was dating/engaged to a guy named Joe, but Bob used to call him Lou, which he said was short for Loser! Bob is a funny guy. Depending on her mood, even Cecil B would laugh at the jab/joke. Cecil B and I nearly had a moment one night. Fortunately for me, a few buddies of mine saw what was going on, and put the kibosh on it. They brought me to my senses. I guess you’d have to call them faithful friends. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
