Visual Description:  At home, with the Ladybugs!

WAQUKS  =  SQUAWK,  FUMNIF  =  MUFFIN,  DGUTEB  =  BUDGET,  SNITIS  =  INSIST,  QUTAEE  =  EQUATE,  IGLGEG  =  GIGGLE   —   Giving us:  QUMNBGIITEUGG

Clue/Question:  When the beetle’s wife asked him to take out the garbage for the third time, he said this.

Answer:  QUIT BUGGING ME

(Wow!  How cool to have kind of a built in recliner like that!!!  I wonder what kind of beer he’s drinking?  I think there was some kind of cartoon super-hero called The Tick.  My son would know.  It would’ve been when he was a kid.  OK ladies, here’s the truth.  None of us guys like it . . . but almost all of us guys need to be nagged.  From time to time, at least.  Must be some kinda testosterone thing.

Not a bad Sunday Jumble.  I got all the clue words, instantly, but they were well jumbled.  It looks like ralis95 will be updating his clue word database, with the new additions of “squawk” and “budget”.  I didn’t think that any of the words were new.  A lot I know!  Huh?  The answer letter layout was okay, but not super.  Loved the cartoon!  Very humorous.  That’s it, friends.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

PS.  The photo?  Yeah, I blame the testosterone thing . . . again.   —   YUR

This is not an easy time for humorists because the government is far funnier than we are.”   —   Art Buchwald

(This would be kind of an old-school view of things.  Art’s been gone for over 5 years now, but most of today’s humorists get all their best material from the goofier pols and government officials.  Letterman misses Bush and Cheney so much that he snags any opportunity to recall their glory? days.  Be well, do good . . . and have a heart, friends.  Yes, Dick, transplants count!)   —   YUR
