Henry Morgan Recruiting for the Attack: this was originally published in Pyle, Howard (August–September 1887). “Buccaneers and Marooners of the Spanish Main”. Harper’s Magazine. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Visual Description:  Buccaneers transporting their booty . . . by body.

CIRKT  =  TRICK,  TIFAH  =  FAITH,  GINSEN  =  ENSIGN,  NURGPS  =  SPRUNG   —   Giving us:  TCAHESISPN

Clue/Question:  Carrying all the treasure caused the pirate to get . . .

Answer:  CHEST PAINS

(Aarrrr, ye mateys!  The Cap’n needs to ease off on the grog and rich foods, and start taking fish oil supplements and a daily aspirin!  He should probably log in a few dozen laps around the deck daily, too.  Definitely NOT the Errol Flynn/Burt Lancaster/Johnny Depp type pirate that we love to romance over.  No, this guy is one sloppy mess of a pirate.  I shouldn’t talk though.  I could stand to lose twenty to thirty pounds myself.

No new clue words, today.  The jumbling of them was pretty good.  I really liked “ensign”.  The answer letter layout was fantastic, today!  Of course, the Clue/Question was very leading, so the answer letter layout was all for naught.  Great cartoon!  Very reminiscent of The Pirates of the Caribbean.  I especially liked the new twist on the sinking sailboat, that we see in most jumbles near a large body of water.  Overall?  A nice job, fellows.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Cute puzzle! But ensign had me pondering, and faith and sprung tried to be hard, but when I circled them, they popped!
