Answer:  CUSHY JOB

(Cushion kinda gave away the answer, for me.  Although, I’m sure there are some out there who might not be familiar with the phrase.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  Yet, all of their jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a nifty jumble as well.  Nice warehouse/factory setup.  I liked the little vending machine in the break room.  And, the guy testing the couch cushions has an even better job than the lady!  Fun little pun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Being misunderstood by people whose opinions you value is absolutely the most painful.”   —   Gloria Steinem

(I think we’ve all been there.  Especially, when it comes to the written word.  But, even the spoken word, in face to face contexts yet, can be misconstrued at times.  I think a lot of it has to do with overcoming preconceived notions/beliefs.  We all need be prepared to think outside of ourselves sometimes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Learning, to be of much use, must have a tendency to spread itself among the common people.”   —   Henry Ward Beecher

(I know he meant well, and of course it’s true, but whenever you use the phrase “common people” you’re going to come off sounding a little arrogant.  But, also, 21st Century sensibilities have become excessively whiny, so I think we need to give old Hank a pass here.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  For King Kong, finding clothing that fit was a – – – 

Image result for magilla gorilla

Answer:  SIZABLE PROBLEM

(King Kong don’t need no suit!  He’s The Eighth Wonder of the World!  He’s The Scourge of Skull Island!  He’s the 80,000 pound gorilla in the room!  We ain’t talkin’ no Magilla Gorilla here.  Dis is KING KONG . . . and Denzel Washington ain’t got NOTHIN’ on him!  Go ahead.  Try to call HIM a “monkey”.  I dare ya!  LOL!

All old clue words, with all new jumbles today.  Really terrific answer letter layout today!  I first tried making one of the 7-letter answer words BLAZERS, and that left me with POEBIML.  That was enough for me to see my PROBLEM!  Cute cartoon.  Lot’s of clues in its dialog.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  TRIMMINGS

(But, of course!  Nobody likes hair in their food.  All of the clue words are old favorites, again.  And, we’ve seen both “grevon” and “miyfan” before.  The other two appear to be new.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble.  It gave nothing away.  The cartoon, and its dialog, did a great job of setting up the pun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The appeal of being a fashion model was – – – 

Related image

Answer:  WEARING OFF

(Some of these crazy outfits, besides being bizarre, can also – very often – be dangerous!  In the higher photo above, the poor girl is taking a tumble.  The combination of the crazy high, platform high-heels, and the flowing  wrap skirt/cape thing appear to be a bit much for her.

All of today’s clue words  are old favorites.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “kenal” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout made for an exquisite jumble!  It gave nothing away.  It looks like Jeff has a real flair for high fashion!  Who knows?  Maybe he’ll even give up his day job!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
