Answer:  (11 Letters Long!)

I HAVEN’T DONE THIS TO YOU GUYS IN QUITE A WHILE.  TODAY’S JUMBLE SEEMS TO BE PERFECT FOR THIS BLAST FROM THE PAST!  SO, WITHOUT FURTHER ADO:  WELCOME TO THE UNCLERAVE WISEGUY OF THE DAY CONTEST!  I KNOW TODAY’S ANSWER . . . BUT I DON’T FEEL LIKE JUST GIVING IT AWAY, TODAY.  I WANT TO SEE HOW MANY OF YOU GUYS ARE AS BIG A WISEGUY AS I AM.  SO, WRITE IN AND TELL ME THE ANSWER.  TREAT ME LIKE A PUNK, WHO DOESN’T REALLY KNOW THE ANSWER, OR JUST RANT AND RAVE AT ME FOR PULLING A STUNT LIKE THIS.  THE FIRST ONE TO COMMENT, WITH THE CORRECT ANSWER, WILL WIN THE TITLE OF: UNCLERAVE WISEGUY OF THE DAY!  DAVID L. HOYT AND JEFF KNUREK ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO PLAY . . . OBVIOUSLY.  ANONYMOUS COMMENTS WILL BE POSTED (providing content is not too violent or obscene – my call), BUT WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE COVETED TITLE OF:  UNCLERAVE WISEGUY OF THE DAY.  BONUS POINTS WILL GO TO WHOEVER “SHARES THIS” POST THE MOST!  HOW WILL THAT BE DETERMINED?  BEATS THE MERDE OUT OF ME!  (Yes, this is pretty much an exact copy from the last time I pulled this stunt.)

Not bad.  Not bad.  We had 21 entries this time around.  Yes the answer was OUTSTANDING.  The first to ring in with the correct answer was Susan Robinson!  (She beat out Joe Key by 4 minutes.)  That makes Susan Robinson the UncleRave Wiseguy of the Day!  Sue can proudly post this to her resumé, brag to all her friends, and one day tell her grandchildren about it.  Everyone who participated was so kind!  Our old pal, JT, gave the most thought out and lengthy comment.  Thanks, JT!  And, thank you to everyone who played along!   —   Your Uncle Rave

(There were no new clue words today, but some very interesting jumbling.  I didn’t struggle with the number one – “tenth” – today, but I did with “podium”.  I thought I was going to have to write out all possible arrangements of letters, I didn’t want to back into it, but it came to me as I walked out of the room.  Even “again” might be hard for those who have trouble getting words that begin with vowels.  For some reason, I saw “dismay” right away.  I thought today’s answer letter layout was PERFECTION!  It’s the main reason why I’m reviving – at least for today – the UncleRave Wiseguy of the Day contest.  The cartoon was also fantastic, and it doesn’t contain any kind of Bonus Clue!  The only bonus clue comes from one of the words in the Clue/Question.  Best Jumble in quite a while.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
