(My first thought was:  Why is Jeff drawing this ugly, angry-looking woman?  Then I saw all the props, remembered the venue, and then it hit me.  Ohh!  It’s Carrot Top!  Guys like Gallagher, Carrot Top, and Larry the Cable Guy seem to have staying power.  They’re funny, but overall I prefer the comics like Robert Klein, Steven Wright, Jerry Seinfeld and Demetri Martin.  I like it when I have to think about a joke before laughing at it.  Even if I laugh well after everyone else.  I gots no shame.

Nice clue word jumbling.  I especially liked both “fourth” and “health”.  I don’t have my clue word database with me, so ralis95 is going to have to check these out on his own.  I thought the answer letter layout was pretty good, but I got the answer right away.  Probably because of Jeff’s cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(This is why we shouldn’t fear making mistakes.  Perfection – especially on the first attempt – is an unrealistic expectation.  Live, laugh, learn . . . repeat.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I wish our leaders would take this quote to heart!   —   YUR
