Visual Description:  Jeff’s subtle send up to Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer.

GODDE  =  DODGE,  SNKKU  =  SKUNK,  VEIVER  =  REVIVE,  FRAMIF  =  AFFIRM  —   Giving us:  DDESNREEFIR

Clue/Question:  When the does met, they knew instantly they would become . . .

Answer:  DEER FRIENDS

(After a pretty tough Sunday Jumble, it looks like they’re easing us into the work week with a fairly obvious one.  Ya gotta like the cartoon!  I love the pseudo-Starbucks’ logo on the window!  I didn’t know that does hooves came with opposable thumbs!  Ah, the power of the cartoon!  Decent clue word jumbling.  Nothing too difficult.  However, it looks like “revive” is going to be a new addition to the ralis95 clue word database.  I did like the answer letter layout.  Very nicely jumbled.  This looks like it’s a post-Rudolf scenario.  So, what was it exactly?  A messy divorce?  Mishap with a 747 engine?  Did all the fame just go to Rudolf’s head?  Enquiring minds want to know!  Be well and do good friends.)   —   YUR
