(Wonderfully stinky pun!  “Grime” was a little easy, but the other clue words were much more challenging.  Even though we’ve had “igloo”, with this exact jumbling before, I still kind of fell for it.  We even had two new clue words today!  We can add both “hurray” and “karate” to the ralis95 clue word database.  The answer letter layout was beautiful.  Very nicely jumbled.  I wonder if this is Jeff Knurek’s barber?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I found the fourth word very hard. I literally had to FIGHT with it.

    KARATE killed me. Even though I spelled it out right I just couldn’t see it.

    Very similar to me, Joe. I kept thinking I was mentally spelling out some version of KARET. but KARATE. I wasn’t reading it as KA-RA-TE. When I did actually write it out, I had to laugh at myself! That’s the power of a good jumble.

    KARATE did me in! I cheated big time! We usually don’t get 3 syllable words. That’s why words like COYOTE and VIDEO get me every time!
