Answer:  UNSETTLING

(Marvelous play on pioneers being settlers!  There were no new clue words today, but the jumbling was splendid.  All the jumblings seemed new to me.  I’ll let you guys decide which clue words were the hardest to decipher.  The answer letter layout was another great jumble!  If you didn’t pick up on the idiom right away the layout could have presented some problems.  Fun cartoon.  The guy with the moustache looks like a real shyster!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Hardest word was the one that looks like the President of Russia, VLADIMIR PUTIN.
    Thanks for the comments in praise of the Humanities. Sadly, it is no longer a contest between studying Humanities and Math/Science. Now, the mantra is technical education. Doesn’t everybody wanna create video games and cellfone aps?

    The mantra is still Math & Science, burt. But, it IS kind of code-speak for technical education. They want nerdy little specialist, who can’t see the big picture, because they can’t *really think*. — YUR

    This one seemed like a rerun from not too long ago.
    “FONDUE” had me stumped for a while but I finally figured it out.

    I wasn’t getting the rerun feel on this one, Joe. If you mean the answer: UNSETTLING, then maybe it was in a different context??? — YUR

    We had one a few months ago with some similar characters where the answer was SETTLE DOWN. The guy got very excited about seeing his new awesome land that he got very excited and his wife said SETTLE DOWN. This is sort of the opposite of that one.

    Hey! I remember THAT one! Maybe Joe was thinking of that one. I wasn’t thinking opposite. Good one, David. You are Johnny-on-the-spot with a reply today! Good timing, huh? — YUR 🙂

    That’s the one! I remembered that it had something to do with settlers!

    Kitten Kaboodle is spelled with a K not a C

    Dee,

    The idiom is actually *kit and caboodle*. But, caboodle is spelled with a C. See below:

    caboodle (kəˈbuːd ə l)

    — n
    informal a lot, bunch, or group (esp in the phrases the whole caboodle, the whole kit and caboodle )

    — YUR 🙂
