Visual Description:  Big Ass Bug . . . near a mug.

NITEG  =  TINGE,  SIYPT  =  TIPSY,  NATMED  =  TANDEM,  FLARMO  =  FORMAL   —   Giving us:  INETPSDEFR

Clue/Question:  The insect was no longer bugging him, and was quickly becoming his . . .

Answer:  PEST FRIEND

(I think Jeff may have been inspired by that Honey Nut Cheerio’s commercial!  I don’t know what it was today, but I struggled to get the clue words today.  None of them are new, but I think that they were all well jumbled.    I got “formal” first!  And, you guys know how I always take it from the top!  I even got “tipsy” wrong, thinking it was pitys, which of course is not the correct spelling of pities!  My SON, who never even looks at the Jumble, set me straight on that.  Even with pitys, I was able to solve the answer, but it left me with a Y, instead of an S.  Both of my kids are chips off the old block!  Decent answer letter layout, but the answer was pretty obvious, with all the buddy-buddy chatter.  I liked the drawing, and I like the lady in the Honey Nut Cheerio’s commercial!  Not so much from that commercial, as from another commercial she was in.   Don’t ask.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR 

PS.  And, this little kid is cute as a bug, in a rug!   —   YUR
