Visual Description:  The Mall of Knurek.

DALPED  =  PADDLE,  CNECAT  =  ACCENT,  SELNUS  =  UNLESS,  ROSWOR  =  SORROW,  THOOMS  =  SMOOTH,  GHILPT  =  PLIGHT   —   Giving us:  DDANUNSSWSOPIT

Clue/Question:  The mall’s new escalator had . . .

Answer:  ITS UPS AND DOWNS

(Different cartoon, but I’m fairly sure this gag has been used before, except with an elevator.  No new clue words, today.  The jumbling of the clue words was less than inspiring.  Too many double letters, “smooth” was simply backwards, and “plight” was nearly backwards, to my eyes.  I guess the jumble I liked best was “unless”!  On the other hand, the answer letter layout was superb!  Nice cartoon, Jeff.  Who in your family is a leftie?  I see Sydney is into baking, and Kathy has a flair for design.  And of course, you just had to have a Jumble store!  Mugs, books, calendars, what-have-yous.  Unclerave is planning on opening stores in malls across the country.  I’m calling them House of Grouse!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Where can you play the Sunday Jumble online. UCLICK, Seattle Times & Chicago Tribune run something different on Sundays. Thanks!

    Hey Unc- Enjoyed today’s jumble, but I believe LEFTORIUM came from the Simpsons circa 1991 when Ned Flanders shot at small business failed…. Hey diddly doh…. Just think if Obama and the LEFT were in charge then they would have BAILED out poor Ned, and given cellphones to all of Springfield, ( Even unempolyed drunk Barney LOL) Have a great week Wimpy

    Sorry, guys. The Sunday Jumble is not available online. David L. Hoyt has explained why a few times, but I forget. Some licensing legal mumbo-jumbo, or something.

    Wimpy,

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Jeff drew that from The Simpsons, but the other two stores definitely seemed more on the personal side.

    I saved the Daily News Sunday Jumble page from 1/27/13 and just completed it……I had a heck of a time with “accent” for some reason and consulted my wordsmith husband who can do the Sunday NY Times crossword. He came up with “accent” after looking at it for about 3 minutes!! Can’t figure out why it was so tricky!

    Elsa,

    Very often, I find the toughest jumbled clue words are those that have an actual word present in them. CNECAT has cat. I think your brain gets a little distracted by what it has recognized, and it causes your eyes to focus more on that word, instead of the overall letters. That’s what yer Dr. Uncle Rave thinks!

    Thanks Uncle Rave. Your answer sounds on target, unlike my thought processes.
