Wow!!!  More than 55 Wiseguy Comment entries!    Yes, the answer was/is:  STEREOTYPICAL.  Some of you thought it was TYPICALSTEREO, but that ain’t a word, bunkies!  Not the biggest wiseguy, but guy with the fastest fingers is Bob Davis, from South Carolina!  So, that makes him the UncleRave Wiseguy of the Day!  All the rest of you get the Honorable Mention Award.  Tex-Turd (one of many “Anonymous”) gave me the most grief, so he gets  EXTRA Mention!  Thanks, for playing along, folks!   —   Your Uncle Rave

(Excellent clue word jumbling, today!  As well as a top-notch job with the answer letter scrambling, and drawing.  It appears that “classy” is new to the ralis95 database.  Today’s answer is almost contrastive of the word “unique”, but the guys were taking a little artistic license here.  Part of the answer is synonymous with “sound system” . . . in case anybody needed a bonus clue.  Audiophiles, and I guess videophiles, always kind of annoy me.  I don’t really require that level of clarity.  Sure, I’m impressed with the sharpness and the detail, but I’m not a gotta have it kind of guy.  I just don’t need it in order to appreciate the big picture . . . so to speak.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
