TEBRIT  =  BITTER,  BUMHAS  =  AMBUSH,  NEBING  =  BENIGN,  ROMELA  =  MORALE,  SEBDIE  =  BESIDE,  BACTOL  =  COBALT   —   Giving us:  IAHNNMOSIDOLT

Clue/Question:  Even though he didn’t have a brain, the scarecrow had . . .

Answer:  A LOT ON HIS MIND

(I liked this Jumble a lot!  Not only because it features a scene from one of the best movies of all time, but because it featured some marvelous clue word jumbling.  Surprisingly, none of the clue words were new, but I got a kick out of the jumblings of “ambush” and “morale”.  And, I had such a hard time getting “cobalt” that I had to back into it!  Which was tough, because the answer was not all that obvious, to me.  Great job on the answer letter layout.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  Great job on the scene from The Wizard of Oz!  I always like it when Jeff draws movie-themed Jumble cartoons.  That’s it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
