(Whew!  Get out the gas-masks!  With the absence of a strong breeze, the funk of this stanky pun may linger for days, chilluns!  Hey, what’s the fun of a pun without a little stink on it?  Some great clue word jumbling.  Maybe what we’re smelling is some expired sushi?  Or, maybe something dredged from the bottom of the lake!  Have you ever smelled Durian, friends?  It’s been called the world stinkiest fruit!  But, I digress.  The answer letter layout was good and cryptic.  And, the cartoon told the tale.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    You really dissed this Jumble; I like the very subtle way you included the clue words in your comments. I finally did get the answer before doing the words with help from the cartoon. When I looked at the 2 men’s faces and read their comments the word “disgusted” came to me and a little voice from somewhere said “HEY…disGUSTed… gust…wind?…get it???

    McDuck,

    It WOULD have been subtle had I not italicized the clue words! But, ya gots ta go clue words first!!! That’s one of the main things Hoyt puts his effort into. Plus, you’re robbing yourself of half the fun when you go to the cartoon first. I hope you caught my drift . . . with draught.

    LindaLee,

    Glad you liked it, sweetie!
