(Nothing funny about broken bones!  Better it an arm than a leg though, I guess.  With a broken arm you don’t lose any mobility, at least.  No new clue words today, but the usual great jumbling.  The answer letter layout was very good too.  I trust that most of you have a decent working knowledge of human anatomy!  The cartoon was fun.  Some folk are totally freaked out by clowns.  The fear usually starts in childhood, and then lasts through their adult lives.  I guess there is a kind of creepy aspect to clowns.  They are very unnatural looking.  But, that never bothered me.  I always liked Emmett Kelly Jr.‘s bit with the broom and the spotlight.  Very clever.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Disappointment is an endless wellspring of comedy inspiration.”   —   Martin Freeman

(“Take my wife . . . please!”  “I don’t get no respect.  No respect at all.”  And, don’t even get me started on Richard Lewis and Lewis Black!  Channeling disappointment . . . and anger . . . is a big part of many comedy routines.  You have to project it in a way in which you don’t scare or offend the audience.  That is the tricky part.  The art.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
