(Beautiful!  I loved it!  Some of the all-time great Looney Tunes characters.  Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Pepé Le Pew . . . and Pepé’s cousin Jean Claude!  I actually had to back into “candid” today.  “Clerk” was the easiest solve.  It was just backwards.  Not sure if anything was new.  The answer letter layout was fantastic.  Jeff’s marvelous drawing made the answer all too apparent, though.  Ya coulda worked for Tex Avery or Chuck Jones, kid!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Ah, ah, ah! English only, my friend. Maybe there’s some kind of Hawaiian dialect that uses “nossle”, but the word I think you’re thinking of is “nozzle”. “Lesson” is a stand alone word, that uses those six letters. David L. Hoyt is pretty good about checking out his clue words! Thanks for contributing, though. I look forward to your next comment.
