(Alright, alright, ALRIGHT!  A nice, long, 13 letter answer today!  And, a pretty good pun, to boot.   All the clue words were well jumbled, with what look like all new jumblings, to me.  I really liked the jumbling of “engulf”.  It made me consider FUNGEL, though I knew that couldn’t be it.  And, we have another new clue word to be added to the ralis95 clue word database, in “custom”!  Hoyt has been giving us a lot of new clue words lately.  Today’s answer letter layout was back to being superlative.  No giveaways there, today!  Great cartoon.  Hopefully, you all have enough detail to see that it’s Jim Cramer up on the video screen.  The three co-workers are champing at the bit, because they are all likely to be getting a few more clients.  That sad-sack broker is toast!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Alright, Alright, Alright! =) The jumble in our paper is teeny, so your head’s up to details/words in the pictures are always appreciated. I get out my magnifying glass at times to check it out after I’ve read your Jumble thoughts. Thanks!

    I was all over fungal, fungle too! Then figured it could be one of those dastardly vowel beginning words!!! Great puzzler!!!

    So, Wimpy!

    You were able to see Syndergaard pitch?! A lot of buzz around that kid! Too bad he still needs some Triple A seasoning. Colon is still kind of a question mark, due to his age, but he sure got things done last year! And, if Niese, Gee and Wheeler stay healthy, then it’s just a matter of settling that 5th rotation spot. Dice-K, Lannan or Mejia. I feel good about our starting pitching, and I loved the pickup of Grandy-man! If Davis can turn it around, I don’t see us being a doormat this year. Enjoy the Florida sunshine, buddy!

    i’ve decided FUNGLE should be a word – like others observed, it was the first thing that came to mind while de-scrambling that one.

    Should it be a verb or a noun?

  7. 7 unclerave March 7, 2014 at 12:02 am

    Gotta be a verb. Right, Art? — YUR

  8. 8 LindaLee March 7, 2014 at 12:06 am

    Mmmmmm Art….good question…it sounds almost more like an action word. But then, it could be a person, place or thing…….

  9. 9 Art Shapiro March 7, 2014 at 12:19 am

    Not necessarily…I’ve been diagnosed with a chronic inflammation of the subordinate fungle.

    Nice to see so many having fun with this one! I just did a quick *Google* search on it, and FUNGLE does exist, as an urban conjunction of a popular F.U. phrase and BUNGLE. So, despite Art’s *condition*, it sort of exists as a verb. That’s so *ratchet*!!! — YUR ;-}

  11. 11 jenn March 7, 2014 at 1:08 pm

    UR, In addition to being so ‘rachet’, it is also so ‘cra cra’! -(I only know this phrase after seeing a news segment of ‘words and phrases people over 30 should never say’…and I’m a proud member of that club, ha!) =D

  12. 12 unclerave March 7, 2014 at 2:46 pm

    Just give it a couple more years, jenn. Then it will be okay for people over 30 to say it. But of course, by then, it’ll be: “Nobody says that anymore, Mom/Dad!” — YUR 🙂

  13. 13 LindaLee March 7, 2014 at 5:09 pm

    Art, very good….I think the next time someone asks me how I’m doing I’m going to tell them that!! Unc, I actually thought about bungle with fungle.
