Visual Description:  David and Jeff, suffering a form of writer’s block.

PAWSM  =  SWAMP,  BRINO  =  ROBIN,  CLUPST  =  SCULPT,  WINDOS  =  DISOWN   —   Giving us:  SWAROSLTDSO

Clue/Question:  When the Jumble creators struggled to make the puzzle work they were this.

Answer:  AT A LOSS FOR WORDS

(The actual Answer Layout – NOT the answer letter layout – made this easier than it could have been.  The “A” and the “FOR” made the answer pretty obvious.  Too bad, because the answer letter layout was great!  As were all the clue words.  I had to write out – AND back into – “disown”!  Even “robin” took a few mental un-jumblings.  Great cartoon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
