Visual Description:  A shrimpy, big-footed, short-armed, next-to-blind tennis wannabe.

UMDNO  =  MOUND,  ARSFC  =  SCARF,  LCNECA  =  CANCEL,  SEOTRY  =  OYSTER   —   Giving us:  MUNSAFALYT

Clue/Question:  He wasn’t going to win the tennis match due to his . . .

Answer:  MANY FAULTS

(Today’s was more challenging than yesterday’s.  Even compared to many other Jumbles this is a good one.  I even had to write out the fourth word a few times to get “oyster”.  All the clue words are well-scrambled, it’s a great cartoon, and there’re no giveaways in the answer letters.  Nice going, guys.  Do you know that yesterday, for the first time in the history of Unclerave’s Wordy Weblog, there were more queries for the Cryptoquote than for the Jumble?  It’s true.  The funky layout apparently got to a lot of people out there, and they had to come here to get/confirm the answer.  Cool.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Ah!  Alladin Sane!  Née David Jones . . . but didn’t want to be confused with Davy Jones of The Monkees.  So, he pondered if there was Life on Mars?, and went through a number of Changes.  But, not to worry.  Everything turned out Hunky Dory, for the man who would grow to be The Thin White Duke!)   —   YUR
