Arm wrestling: The contestant on the right is in an injury-prone or “break arm” position. His shoulder must be in line with or behind the arm, as seen with the contestant on the left. This is cause for a referee to stop the match. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Answer:  HAND OVER FIST

(One of our stranger idioms, I’d say.  It’s supposed to mean making lots of money.  And, I guess, its supposed to mean quickly, too.  I just can’t visually process the literal act of hand over fist.  Anybody know the origins of the phrase?  We have another NEW clue word today!  ralis95 will be adding the word “rosier” to his clue word database.  I had a little trouble getting “fibula”, which is strange, because that is the only bone that I’ve ever broken in my life.  Old diehard Unclerave readers remember this!  Splendid answer letter layout.  Cool cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.”   —   George Washington

(Sage advice, from the Father of Our Country.  That is, of course, if you are a citizen of the United States.  I think a lot of us are probably a little too intimate with too many.  It all has to do with being liked.  Why that is so important, I don’t know.  All I know is that I am a victim of that mentality myself.   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
