(You’d think that it might have been:  IN-FAT-UATION, but I guess not!  No new clue words today.  They were all jumbled well though.  We’ve had this jumbling of “alkali” before, and the “unfit” jumble is in alphabetical order.  The jumblings of “mound” and “intent” look new, to me.  I don’t think the answer letter layout gave away a thing.  I struggled some to get the answer.  Initially, I thought the answer was going to start with UN.  I thought UNFORTUNATE, but there was no R and no E.  It took me a while to see FAT, but when I did I remembered the word “passion” in the clue/question, and then it finally hit me.  Did anybody else have a hard time with this?  For those of you with the reduced Jumble, Jeff gave us a pizza, a huge cheeseburger, onion rings, french fries, looks like a plate of nachos, and some other sandwich . . . presumably a BLT!  While in the background the waitress is carrying an ice cream sundae and what looks like another cheeseburger.  Hopefully, those are for a different customer!  And, the name of the place is Frydays!  Tons of fun!  Be well . . . try to eat a well-balanced diet and do good, friends.)   —  YUR

    UNC- I had a very hard time with ALKALI I’m surprised its been used before. I had to back into it. I got final answer rather easy. Have a great weekend. I want to see my Yanks beat up the Bosox this weekend….WIMPY

    Wimpy,

    It looks like you’ll do no worse than an even split, buddy! Your bats have started to wake up, and that’s always a good sign. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! — YUR

    I am backtracking on a few Jumble puzzles, and I had to respond to this one because of ALKALI. I had never seen it in puzzles before, and it was just too much for me. I couldn’t even get it after I knew the solution. I especially loved this puzzle for the food cartoon. Is the guy’s arm in the pizza? Ha! I’d still eat it, but only if it was a pizza from Jersey, best in the world. 🙂

    I couldn’t tell you when, Leslie. All I know is that I’ve used KAAILL as a *tag* before, which indicates that ALKALI has been used as a clue word before. Maybe I could look it up though. Lemme see. — YUR

    Thanks! I don’t remember that puzzle. If a word has a K and I and L from now on, I will try ALKALI!
