Answer:  UP TWO NO GOOD

(Very good pun.  Yer Uncle approves.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I didn’t think that any of them were too tough.  Let me know which ones may have caused you some pause.  The answer letter layout was VERY nicely cryptic.  A wonderful jumble.  But, the quotation marks were definitely a big help today.  And, of course, Jeff’s great cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If I’m not with somebody who excites or inspires me, then I’d rater be by myself.”   —   Blake Lively

(I must say, this is a pretty good quote!  This is our first Blake Lively quote.  She’s only 30, but compared to my son, she looks very mature.  When my son is clean shaven, he looks like he’s 17 or 18.  He’s more than handsome enough for her though.  If she’s interested in an extremely handsome, and youthful looking, 30 year old man-child, then I’ve got the man for her!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The finest clothing made is a person’s skin, but, of course, society demands something more than this.”   —   Mark Twain

(That’s because too many of us are either fat, or wrinkly!  If we were all nicely toned there probably would be much less objection to nudity.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What a bargain grandchildren are!  I give them my loose change, and they give me a million dollars’ worth of pleasure.   —   Gene Perret

(The ones who might enjoy loose change are too young to give it to, because they are likely to swallow it.  And, the older ones are looking for bills these days!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  KHAKEY PANTS

(Aah!  Very original stinky pun!  No new clue words today.  However, all of the jumbles came up as new.  Kinda funny seeing “inject” after I had recently written about “ject” words.  Great answer letter layout!  Thanks to the cartoon, PANTS was pretty much a given.  The remaining letters made the pun portion pretty clear.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  FORE FOR FOUR

(Excellent golf pun!  We appear to have a new clue word in “fluff”.  Our great friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database for this simple word.  All of the jumbles are coming up as new.  Expertly crafted answer letter layout.  Nifty cartoon.  Reminiscent of Caddyshack.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  MONEY TO BURN

(Great play on the old idiom.  No new clue words.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “murym” having been used before.  Super cryptic answer letter layout!  Definitely not obvious, at all.  Nicely detailed cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Ooh!  Really stinky pun.  No new clue words, but three new jumbles.  We’ve seen “phedt” before.  Once again, in just under a week, we’re seeing the clue word “depth”.  Another awesome answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious about it.  Fun cartoon of a hipster coffee shop.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for When pigs fly

Answer:  PIGMENT

(Marvelously stinky pun!  And, a great Jumble!  There might not have been any new clue words, but all of the jumbles did come up as new.  I don’t think that any of them were too tough.  I did see the word PANDORA for a few seconds.  It was just a name, but now it’s a product.  Right?  So, maybe it could sneak in as a “word”, if it were only six letters long.  The answer letter layout was swell.  Nothing obvious there.  The cartoon is great.  The hog farmer in his hip waders, and the snoozing piggy made for a very charming cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
