Answer:  NEST EGG

(Strangely timed with the recent death of John Henson, one of Jim Henson’s sons!  He lived about an hour and 20 minutes up the Thruway from me, in Saugerties, NY.  Such a shame, dying at only 48, from a massive heart attack.

No new clue words, but all jumbled very nicely.  Both “guitar” and “motion” gave me a little trouble, and we’ve seen this jumbling of “motion” before.  The answer letter layout was well planned.  Nice pun, and a great cartoon.  I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as I did.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Oh goodness how sad. Thank you Unc, I did not know that. I had to back into guitar. Could not get it. But, the minute I put the g down in the circle, I saw it. Very cute puzzler!

    Yes, GUITAR stumped me, too. I was wondering if the guys put this cartoon up for a tribute to Jim Henson’s son, but it appears to only be a coincidence. Sad, none the less.
