(Looks like the guys saved the best for last, again, this week!  There were no new clue words, but some decent jumbling.  Nothing that required backing into, or even having to write out, but nothing obvious.  The answer letter layout was well thought out.  No giveaways there.  Very cute pun.  And, probably the most imaginative cartoon in quite a while.  It’s a little too early to tell if you guys are having trouble solving this.  If you are at all a fan of sci-fi, then this should have been relatively simple.  But, if you’re not, maybe this stumped you some.  Nice job, men!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PURUS  =  USURP,  NAGET  =  AGENT,  PARTUB  =  ABRUPT,  TIDOYD  =  ODDITY   —   Giving us:  PGNAUDDI

Clue/Question:  The number of billboards along the highway was . . .

Answer:  ADDING UP

(Not bad.  No new clue words, but “usurp” was fun.  The jumbling of “oddity” was pretty good too.  Great answer letter layout, but the answer was pretty easy.  The cartoon was pretty sterile, today.  That’s it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

When someone hands you a flyer, it’s like they’re saying, “Here, you throw this away.”     Mitch Hedberg

(Funny.  A brief discussion on this guy just came up at work a few days ago.  Tragic and stupid ending to the poor guy’s life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

CEBAH  =  BEACH,  SUISE  =  ISSUE,  DECLUD  =  CUDDLE,  SARPTY  =  PASTRY   —   Giving us:  EAHUECDLATR

Clue/Question:  The mom with four boys wanted a price break, so the barber . . .

Answer:  CUT HER A DEAL

(Nice little pun!  None of the clue words were new today, and none of them gave me any trouble, but they were jumbled well.  The answer letter layout was sweet.  Nothing given away there.  You just had to figure that one of the words was going to be “cut”.  From there, it all just kind of fell into place.  Kind of like a good haircut!  Great cartoon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  For the #1 ranked runner, finishing in last place was . . .

Answer:  A CHANGE OF PACE

(Pretty tough, huh guys???  No new clue words, but they were all jumbled well.  I had to back into “laptop”!  It’s a compound word, and I’m pretty sure it’s a relatively new word.  The answer letter layout was very good, but I got the gist of things even without the AOP.  Great cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
