I was in a beauty contest once.  I not only came in last, I was hit in the mouth by Ms. Congeniality.”   —   Phyllis Diller

SLYYH  =  SHYLY,  KHANT  =  THANK,  FERREP  =  PREFER,  NACCLE  =  CANCEL   —   Giving us:  SHTHAPRCACE

Clue/Question:  The fish market’s new slogan was a . . .

Answer:  CATCH PHRASE

(This one turned out to be a decent challenge, too!  The clue words were all tried and true, and they came without hesitation.  But, the answer letter layout was very smart.  I didn’t pick up on the play on words, with slogan, for a little while.  I was initially concentrating on types of fish, because PERCH immediately came to mind.  Eventually, the little light bulb went off.  Not bad, at all.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
