Clue/Question:  His ability to say “Adios” and “Au Revoir” made him this.

Answer:  BYE“- LINGUAL

(Not bad.  I found it pretty easy, but it’s still a good pun.  No new clue words today, but they were all jumbled well.  I figure people had the most trouble getting “iguana”.  Unless you’re a lizard lover I guess they’re not foremost in most people’s minds.  I approve of today’s answer letter layout!  Hey!  It’s election season.  You better get used to hearing crap like this!  I’ve already had two cups of coffee, but feel I could do with another.  A shower should help.  But, if it doesn’t it’s back to the caffeine!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I was about to bitch about the Zemanta results, when I saw that they offered up this vintage photo!  Remember when you didn’t have to budget your daily allowance around a friggin’ cup of coffee?  Okay, so there was virtually no variety.  But, there was virtually no attitude as well.  I would trade a sane price, and service with a smile, for all of today’s bells and whistles, in a heartbeat!   —   YUR

One man practicing sportsmanship is far better than a hundred teaching it.”   —   Knute Rockne

(I wish I could agree with this.  While it is vitally important to have good examples, there just too many of us who are either self-absorbed, slow on the uptake, or too focused on other things to notice.  Just teaching/preaching won’t reach some/many either.  There needs to be a healthy balance of instruction and practical application.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
