Answer:  WORN OUT

(MARVELOUS pun!  When I initially caught a glimpse of the cartoon I did actually think it might be another zombie gag!  Ironically, there are some similarities to zombie movies and these runway fashion shows.  In both cases, it looks like neither have eaten – a decent meal – in months, AND they both wear that same kind of far away, blank stare!  Combining the two could make for an amusing movie scene.  Zombie models, strutting down the runway, in haute couture.  And when they stop suddenly, or do their little spin move, various body parts could just kind of casually fly off!  Hey, I’d pay a dollar to see that!


No new clue words today, but some great jumbling.  I’m sure that some struggled to get both “oomph” and “occur”.  The jumbling of “autumn” looked new to me.  The answer letter layout was okay, but I would have switched the order of “oomph” and “occur”.  Fantastic cartoon!  For those of you with the reduced size Jumble, there’s the well-quaffed, but squirrely, little designer is holding up two dresses, and the model looks like she’s out on her feet.  On the other side of the wall is the catwalk/runway, which ends at three artsy-fartsy looking judges, or fashion critics.  Tons of fun, kiddies!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I always thought her name sounded like the neurotransmitter: Norepinephrine, which is used to increase the heart rate, blood pressure and sugar level of the blood, and also in dilating the bronchi.  She actually screen-wrote, and/or directed, and/or produced some of my favorite movies.  In a few cases she did all three, as she did in Michael, starring John Travolta, Andie MacDowell and William Hurt.  It’s one of the few movies that I actually liked/enjoyed William Hurt.  Normally, he just bugs the crap out of me.  He always comes off as such a snooty, arrogant prick.  It’s probably just me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I think Travolta screwed up Idina Menzel‘s name (Adele Dazeem) at the 2014 Oscars . . . on purpose!  He’s reading the entire introduction from a teleprompter!  He squints through the entire reading, but he doesn’t hesitate or fumble a single word . . . up to the point where he butchers her name.  Face it, her name isn’t anything common, like Amy Adams, Claire Danes, Kate Moss, or Demi Moore.  Her name is a little funkier, and until this past Academy Awards even I struggled to get it right.  She couldn’t possibly buy better PR!  Now, EVERYBODY knows her name!   —   YUR
