Answer:  ABOVE THE LAW

(I think this pun scores a perfect 10 on the STINK-O-METER!  But of course, it’s a totally visual pun.  Without Jeff’s cartoon – as in this blog post – it’s just kind of an abstraction.  That being said, there were no new clue words today.  The jumbling was good.  I can only confirm that the jumble of “vouch” has been used before.  The others were new to me.  Only “upbeat” gave me any trouble.  Not spell-out or back into trouble.  Just a few looks.  The answer letter layout was a thing of beauty.  It too was expertly jumbled.  The cartoon was great also.  It reminds me of something out of an old comedy short, like The Little Rascals, Laurel and Hardy, The Three Stooges, or The Marx Brothers.  That’s the feeling I get.  I bet people have trained crows and ravens to steal like this.  They are very intelligent and resourceful creatures.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I always seem to have trouble with those words that start with UP. Therefore, I played around with UPBEAT for about 10 minutes. The solution wasn’t too easy either. Don’t magpies steal shiny things and put them in their nests? Anyway, that’s what I thought of with the cartoon which was pretty funny.

    “Upbeat” had me stumped for a little while.

    Yeah, guys. The answer – especially with that answer letter layout – was definitely no gimme.

    As far as Trump and the Bills? He’s enough of a proud American to keep them where they belong. And, I think he would challenge Jones and the Cowboys that the Bills are (could be) America’s Team!
