(This was no gimme!  I puzzled over this one for a few minutes.  I decided the middle word was most likely OF, but TO wasn’t out of the question.  I didn’t seriously considered ON or AN.  All those Es, bunched up together, was really throwing me.  After a bit, I looked at the cartoon again for what they might be substituting.  I saw the word CAUTION on the sign on the wall, and “. . . careful.  We can’t take any chances.”  And finally, the word “tricky” in the clue/question.  They purposely were not using the word DANGER.  So, with checking off the letters of OF and DANGER I was left with MEETELN.  Then the light bulb went off.  Nice pun, huh?  None of the clue words were new, but they were all well-jumbled.  I thought that “entice”, “exempt” and “notion” were great.  The answer letter layout was definitely top-notch today!  And, it was great seeing Homer Simpson make a cameo appearance.  I saw the PU on the warning sign, and I know it’s the symbol for plutonium on the periodic table, but I wasn’t getting ELEMENT until my little process of elimination.  I thought it was a great Jumble.  I hope you guys did too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Yeah!  How come???  I bet they can’t even bend steel in their bare hands.  I’m not sure, but this might be the first quote attributed to a comic/cartoon figure, used as a Cryptoquote.  Dennis was always a favorite of mine, as a kid.  My introduction to the character was actually through the live action television show, starring Jay North.  Then it was probably a tie between the comic strip and the comic books.  I also remember him fondly in the movie, then television show, Maya.  It took place in the jungles of India.  Wholesome entertainment.  Great memories.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
