Answer:  CUT TO THE CHASE

(Fantastic pun!  You can just see the wheels turning in the burglars head.  By the time this clown is done with his spiel I could be outta here!  Hey, the door is open, the gate is open, and the Barney Fife character doesn’t seem to be exuding confidence.  But, the self-preservationist in the burglar is thinking:  Alright, you got me!  Just shut up already, and put the cuffs on me!

No new clue words today, but some super jumbling all around.  I had trouble getting three of them, and I was really happy to finally get “fiasco”, because I’m not so sure I would have been able to back into it.  It took me longer than usual to come up with the solution with all the letters.  I don’t know if I could have solved it without the A and the C.  The answer letter layout was beautiful.  It made you think the five letter word might be HOUSE, but that would have used up 3 of the 5 vowels!  Then I thought that the second word might have been AS, or the first might have been ACT, but I couldn’t take that anywhere.  I had to stand up and start to walk away before it struck me.  Nice job, Hoyt!  The cartoon was priceless!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
