Almost all our faults are more pardonable than the methods we resort to to hide them.”   —   La Rochefoucauld

(Almost.  Too bad Richard Nixon was not a student of La Rochefoucauld’s, huh?!?!  The whole Watergate incident could have been written off as: the actions of a few over-zealous underlings.  But, no-oooo!)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Woman giving the car dealer the third degree.


Clue/Question:  She had so many questions about the car because it was this.


(Tell you what I’m gonna do, friend.  Just because I like your face, I’m gonna let you have this little number for a song!  Once upon a time – I think I was 8 or 9 at the time – I had a very loud sports jacket.  And, I guess that’s about as close to being a car dealer as I ever got.  But, in cartoons . . . all things are possible!  For those of you who get the micro-Jumble — some papers are really cheap with the ink — get out your magnifying glass, and take a look at the sign in the background.  It reads:  “Uncle Rave’s Cars”.  Yes, your buddy, your pal, your favorite loud-mouthed uncle, and friend to Jumble fans EVERYWHERE, has finally made it into the Funny Pages!  Very Funny, Jeff.  The wife thinks we should frame it.  And, to top things off, my good name is being lent to a pretty decent Jumble!  “Novel” is not new, but the scrambling may be.  And, “divert” could be new, but I’d leave that determination up to ralis95.  The answer letter layout didn’t give away the answer, so I’m one happy camper this morning!  Thanks for the shout out, fellas!)   —   YUR

PS.  If I’m going to sell cars they’ve got to be higher end cars!     YUR
