(The guys are riding this . . . The Walking Dead . . . horse . . . to death!  It really seems to be their go to genre.  It works.  There are so many phrases and idioms that use the words “dead” and “death”.  The idea of zombies is just so amusing.  But, maybe more amusing is how many people seem to take the idea seriously.  Some people just love to be scared and grossed out.  They thrive on the adrenaline rush that it gives them.  I guess it’s a decent form of escapism.

No new clue words today.  The jumblings were decent, but not terribly challenging.  Short answers kind of make the answer letter layout irrelevant.  But, it’s a cute cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
