Clue/Question:  Once you’ve looked at one shopping center, you’ve . . .

Answer:  SEEN A MALL

(Once you’ve seen one, you’ve seen ’em all.  Boy, does that ever apply to shopping malls!  I’m not a big fan of most malls.  Mainly because of the parking – or, should I say lack of – situation at most of them.  I don’t like having to go into super aggressive stalker mode, just to be able to park my friggin’ car.  I think everybody should be forced to watch Lord of the Flies before heading out to the mall.  However, while some might come to realize that we’re supposed to behave as civilized human beings, others would probably come away some great tips on savagery.  Ahh!  So, you twist the knife after sticking it in!  Now, I see!

We have a new word for the ralis95 clue word database, in “moved”.  Forgive me, but I just can’t get excited about past tense verbs as clue words.  I suppose they make for good filler.  I liked the jumbling of “oxygen”.  I’ve stumbled over that word before.  Furthermore, I bet getting “abacus” was hard for those who struggle with words that start with vowels.  Huh, hon?  The answer letter layout gave nothing away, which is always a plus.  And of course, the cartoon is very descriptive.  Is that David and his lovely wife . . . whose name I forgot three seconds after I heard it?  Be well, do good . . . and always yield the right of way, for a parking spot, to people over 50!)   —   YUR
