RGDIN  =  GRIND,  SMYUT  =  MUSTY,  TSFOYR  =  FROSTY,  CJEYKO  =  JOCKEY   —   Giving us:  GRNDUTROSOE

Clue/Question:  The accountants excelled at tennis because of their . . .

Answer:  GOOD RETURNS

(Not bad.  None of the clue words were very difficult, although they were well scrambled.  I think Mr. Hoyt took some exception to some earlier comments, and decided to kill us with kindness today.  Three words ending in Y!  Nothing obvious in the answer letters.  Looks like they threw in a couple of “bonus clues”.  The Grand Prize amount and the comment.  Can any accountants out there explain to me the etymology of the slang phrase “G Moder”?  I understand that it’s an exclamation of success, but where the heck does it come from?  What’s the “G”?  What’s a “Moder”  Enquiring minds want to know!  Be well and so good, my friends.)   —   YUR

    rk,

    Jeff Knurek, the artist behind the cartoons, said that they will occasionally be adding “bonus clues” in the cartoon. In the tax-day one the prize amount on the banner is “1099”, which is the number of a US tax form “used to report various types of income other than wages salaries and tips”. For some people these additional clues are what get them over the hump in figuring out the answer. I’m not the biggest fan of them because I prefer more of a challenge. But, that’s just me.
