(No.  Not the game show host, my friends!  “Circle takes the center square.”  At least, I don’t think so.  More likely the minister from the first half of the 20th Century.  A lot of truth to the quote, though!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Uhhh . . .  Okay?  I wasn’t a big Buck Rogers fan, and only a semi-moderate Next Gen fan, so I ain’t diggin’ it, chilluns.  I’m sure some of you out there are lovin’ it, but to me it’s just strange.  There were more than a few years between these shows, and one of them was pure camp, so I don’t quite get it.  I was just way too cool for TV between ’79 to ’81, anyway.  Maybe one of the 40 year olds can explain it to me?  Ah!  Save the bandwidth.  It’s not all that important, anyway.

Some nice jumbling of the clue words.  None gave me any trouble, but I liked both “comedy” and “grime”.  In case you hadn’t figured it out on your own, Hoyt likes to jumble up his one syllable, five letter words to look like two syllable words.  He gave us a new clue word today, in “stench”.  Our buddy ralis95 can add this to his clue word database!  Unfortunately, it was probably the worst jumbled of the clue words.  Nice job on the answer letter layout, though.  Strange, but nicely penned cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
