BANIC  =  CABIN,  OGAME  =  OMEGA,  TANEDT  =  ATTEND,  TADRSN  =  STRAND   —   Giving us:  AINOGTSR

Clue/Question:  After the guitarist donated his kidney, he became this.

Answer:  AN ORGANIST

(Very good.  The clue word jumbling was great.  I struggled some with both “omega” and “attend”.  I saw “cabin” and “strand” right away.  None of the clue words are new today.  The answer letter layout didn’t give anything away.  And it’s a great cartoon.  It looks like either an older brother, or maybe even the dad of our Jeff, from somewhere around his college years.  Good for you, bro!  Who’d you give the kidney to, Jeff?  Is he still making good use of it?  It’s never come up for me, but I’d do it, if asked.  My driver’s license does say Organ Donor, but that only kicks in if I kick it.  Yesterday’s Jumble Spoiler garnered a ton of queries.  I really should have made it into the contest.  It could have been HUGE!  That’s my impression of Donald Trump.  You shoulda seen my comb-over and exaggerated lips.  I kill myself!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Well Uncle, it was five years ago today I had the honor of donating one of my kidneys to my cousin Bob who found out in his late forty’s that he had Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). I would do it again if I could. I can’t believe that saving someones life could be so easy. What I gave was nothing compared to what I received. I look at life with wonder and awe and live it with passion and a new sense of exploration. Life is a gift and YOU can pass it on! Here’s a link to an article about my donation on the National Kidney Foundation’s website. NEYOJ!
