(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

    Grand Sunday puzzler that had me stumped until today! Got the jumbled words semi-quickly. Solving the puzzle took much longer. However, today. after I went to my Unc for help, I discovered that I carried down two wrong letters to use as my clue letters. First off, I had import for prompt. I kept seeing an I. Then I had carried down one wrong letter in garlic. I thought right away the two letter word was of, because that made sense. In all my mistakes, I fired of was wrong, because nothing was working. I had also come up with danger from the beginning, but since I had the wrong letters, it was not working (no R). And I had figured element when looking at the clue letters but I didn’t have a L. I told my husband that the guys had really missed a punnier pun if element was in there. Geesh. Guyz, you definitely are brilliant! So, I plod forward enjoying every minute of jumbledom!
