(Not as many of you do the Sunday Jumble, but I’m sure a good number of you struggled some with this one. I wouldn’t be surprised if this pun hasn’t been used in an earlier Jumble, except with undertakers! Same concept. Great clue word jumbling today! I struggled to get “fiasco”. I think I’ve struggled with other jumblings of this word in the past, as well. I really like the jumbling of “petite” and “famous” too. And, it looks like “native” is going to be a new addition to the ralis95 clue word database. I thought the answer letter layout was masterful. A great all-around Jumble.
Check out the comment that our friend Jeff Knurek posted. I thought I’d address it here, instead of replying to his comment, because only a certain number of comments show up. I think there’s a way you can see more than the ones that are displayed, but that’s for the really ambitious blog readers. Most of y’all are a li’l more casual. Anywho, Jeff is broadening his horizons, and has recorded some music. I took a listen, and it’s actually pretty good. There’s a link to a website, where you can hear three or four of his songs, within the comment. I normally don’t like to give out free plugs, but where else can a kid like this get the kind of exposure that Unclerave’s can provide?!! Nowhere, baby! Besides . . . the guy is almost family. Right??? But, Jeffy. Facebook? I barely have enough time to post these spoilers these days. I rarely have time to putz around on facebook. You should see my email’s inbox. It would take me days to clean that up. But anyway . . . Check out Jeff’s comment and the link to his music. You’ll be glad you did! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
