(One of my favorite 19th Century quotists!  A great American!  I love on the job training.  Beats book learnin’!  Know what I’d like to see, folks?  A Josh Billings one-man show starring Sam Elliot!  Wouldn’t that be perfect casting???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  A  NEIGHSAYER

(A nicely challenging – and relatively stinky – pun!  I see a lot of people have been visiting today, looking for the answer, or at least confirmation of the answer.  I let my daughter solve the last two clue words, and attempt the answer while I went in to the dentist’s exam room, for my semi-annual cleaning/check up.  She wasn’t able to come up with the answer without my help, and she’s pretty good at these.  The clue words were all jumbled well.  We have a new addition to the ralis95 clue word database, in “script”.  It’s been a while, Dave!  The answer letter layout was sublime!  And, the cartoon was a lot of fun.  I think most of us have very fond memories of carnivals and county/state fairs.  I know I do.  Very satisfying jumble.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend, folks.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  About as embarrassing as it gets.

DAIMT  =  ADMIT,  HACSO  =  CHAOS,  KORIOE  =  ROOKIE,  DURRED  =  RUDDER   —   Giving us:  DITCSRIEDDE

Clue/Question:  The man who wasn’t as wealthy as he led people to believe was . . .

 

 

Answer:  DISCREDITED

(Jolly good!  What!  I had a wee bit of trouble with “chaos”.  And, I thought “admit” and “rookie” were also jumbled well.  No new clue words today.  A good – but not great – answer letter layout.  Great drawing though.  It really conveys the guy’s shock and embarrassment.  Time for bed.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
