(A little Bill Watterson and Berke Breathed?  Always fun when Jeff features real live people . . . even himself!  I also enjoy seeing comic strip characters in the Jumble.  I miss both Bloom County and Calvin and Hobbes.  They were top-notch comic strips!

No new clue words, today.  The jumbling was only so-so, and the first jumble kinda gives away the answer.  Damn editors!  LOL!  But overall, an amusing Jumble.  I’d vote for Opus!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I thought you might like a little behind-the-scene insight from Jumble Central as to how I sort of messed up today’s puzzle…just a little. I make everything by hand and then enter everything into Quark. The very last thing I do is to scramble up the letters in the individual jumbles. Because of the way Quark works, I need to zoom in very, very close to the words to mix up the letters. As a result, I’m not actually looking at what puzzle the individual words even go with. I’m just zoomed in and focusing on rearranging the letters. As you spotted, I went with ADRAW as the first jumble which was a great jumbling of AWARD, except for the fact that the mystery answer was IN A DRAW. I wouldn’t have gone with that had I noticed. It’s one of those “one in a million” coincidences. I will have to be more careful to make sure this doesn’t happen again. I didn’t want anything thinking it was intentional. It was just an accident on my part that wasn’t picked up by the editor probably because she too may have been too focused on the letters. These things happen from time to time no matter how hard we try to keep them from happening. It’s just the nature of the business.

    So . . . it was just a quirk in Quark!
