Answer:  CHICKENED OUT

(Nice, long, 12-letter answer!  Fairly rare for a Monday.  We actually have a surprisingly new clue word today, in “church”.  I do not see it on my latest version of the ralis95 clue word database.  How can it be that the Jumble creators have never gone to “church” before?  Bunch of Godless heathens!  LOL!  All of the clue words were jumbled well, and from my view they were all new jumblings.  The answer letter layout was yet another winner.  Nothing given away there.  The cartoon was great too.  I would’ve liked to see some kind of shout out to Buffalo, home of the hot wings, but it looks like even the Jumble goes out of its way to dis the city of Buffalo.  I remember chuckling to myself during one episode of The X-Files, a bunch of years ago, when the Smoking Man, aka: Cancer Man, declared that – by his decree – the Buffalo Bills will never be allowed to win a Super Bowl.  Roughly 20 years later, I no longer find the line amusing.  Some day we’re going to prove that dude wrong!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Ha! I thought the third word was “crunch”. But the circled letters remained the same, so i didn’t catch it.

    Just a gentle reminder about “its” versus “it’s” in your post above. Pet peeve of mine, those just jump out at me. As Jumble fans, we probably all have numerous pet peeves when it comes to words, right?

    And — thank you for the reminder to revisit the X-Files and the Smoking Man — funny!
