Visual Description: A Beach Boys’ tunes choral performance.
GAEIL = AGILE, RODPO = DROOP, MYLOBS = SYMBOL, NOHHOC = HONCHO — Giving us: AGEDROYMOHNO
Clue/Question: The popular choir was paid to perform around the world and made – – –
Answer: GOOD “HAR–MONEY“
(Hey! I like this pun. Nice and stinky! No new clue words, however three of the jumbles did come up as new, today. They’ve definitely used “nohhoc” before. The answer letter layout was a thing of beauty. A super-duper jumble, that did a swell job of hiding the answer. The paper that I’m using today has the reduced sized Jumble, so I can’t comment on any interesting details there might be in the cartoon. But, it surely got the point across! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
“I act for free, but I demand a huge salary as compensation for all the annoyance of being a public personality.” — Michelle Pfeiffer
(Which might be why we haven’t seen much of her in the last three years! Just kidding. I’m sure it has more to do with Hollywood’s bias against aging female – beauty – actresses, and her not taking roles that she doesn’t like. It looks like we will be seeing more of her in 2017 though! IMDB is showing four movies, one made for TV, currently in post-production. She’s still a very beautiful woman. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

SERDS = DRESS, ATFAO = AFOOT, ROLISA = SAILOR, PEGIMA = MAGPIE — Giving us: DRSFOAIMAI
Clue/Question: When asked if the horror film was too scary for his little brother, he said – – –
Answer: I‘M AFRAID SO
(C’mon! You know that he did this on purpose! That’s what some/a lot of big brothers do. LOL! No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new. They’ve given us “serds” before. I thought all three of the new jumbles were very good, especially “pegima” and “rolisa”. “Afoot” is one of those words that spells out in alphabetical order. The answer letter layout was another nifty jumble. The cartoon is a hoot. The intentionally scary clown came from the warped imaginations of a few poor slobs who seemed to find the benign clowns scary. They come from the same kind of kids who thought that Santa Claus was “scary”. I never had that problem, but I know that they’re out there. You just never know. I even once knew a girl who was scared to death of butterflies! Can you imagine? LOL! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
“I was so surprised at being born that I didn’t speak for a year and a half.” — Gracie Allen
(The more talented half of the Burns and Allen comedy team! It seems a little strange to me, but this appears to be the first Gracie Allen quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers. She was so good at playing a dizzy dame! Today’s cryptoquote wasn’t spectacularly difficult, but it took a lot more time than yesterday’s to get started. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

LORTL = TROLL, LITUQ = QUILT, FILRAY = FAIRLY, GEELLA = ALLEGE — Giving us: TLLTIRYALE
Clue/Question: When he said the U.S. produces 200 million tons of trash annually, he meant it – – –
(Cute, stretch of a pun. None of the clue words were new, but three of the jumbles came up as new. They’ve used “lortl” before. I thought that “filray” was a great jumble. It took me a couple of seconds to see “fairly”. The answer letter layout was an excellent jumble! Nothing obvious about it, at all. If you really want to be “litter-al”, trash – properly disposed of – is NOT litter. And, if you want to really get literal, not all litter is trash. I wonder which came first though, the noun or the verb? Hmm. I’d kinda bet on the verb. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
“There are two men inside the artist: the poet and the craftsman. One is born a poet. One becomes a craftsman.” — Emile Zola
(This one was too easy! Just as I was printing this from the Arkansas Online site, I was saying to myself I could probably solve this without printing it out. But, too late. It’s a great quote, though. I’ve been known to “craft” a poem, from time to time, but clearly I’m no poet. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

NORGP = PRONG, DYRAT = TARDY, TETXEN = EXTENT, SOLFIS = FOSSIL — Giving us: PNTETOSI
Clue/Question: To destroy the town and get home for dinner, Godzilla had to – – –
Answer: STEP ON IT
(Not bad. No new clue words today. But, three of the jumbles are new. They’ve used “norgp” before. Super answer letter layout. Really great jumble. The cartoon was super distracting for me! I always try to do these Jumbles very systematically, but I was so tempted to look at the cartoon and clue/question, because of Jeff’s great Godzilla! Lots of fun today. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
