Answer:  BARGAIN

Stella Artois

(I guess Homer is going to have to develop a taste for Stella Artois, because I can’t see any establishment owned by Mr. Burns selling Duff Beer!  Can you?  Fun pun.  But, I think this would only qualify as a “gain” if Burns turns around and sells it for a profit.  Right now it’s just a bar steal, which is not to be confused with a bar stool!  Don’t worry.  I will refrain from telling that hackneyed gay bar joke. 

There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbling was new to me.  I initially whiffed on batty.  I confused the Bs and the Ts, I guess, and wrote down TABBY.  The T didn’t help me, so I looked again, and bapped myself on the forehead!  It was only a coupla sips into my first coffee, so I’m giving myself a pass on that.  I’m betting that some of you had some difficulty with “iguana” and maybe even “ensign”.  The answer letter layout was fine.  Great cartoon too!  It definitely looks like Moe’s Tavern, and those are good likenesses of Moe and Mr. Burns.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Yes, I had to ponder #3 & 4, to get past U-AGAIN and SING-EN! With the nice cartoon frame, the solution was apparent, though I wondered if you could do something with GIN, like ARAB GIN …

    Funny, hal! Before I fixed TABBY, I too started out with GIN. But, I was left trying to make sense of GIN-TARA, GIN-RATA, and GIN-ARTA! — YUR

    Iguana got me too! Again was all I could see. I had no help from the puzzler and had to get all the words to figure it out. But, that is usually the way it is for me! And I would have had no idea this puzzler had anything to do with a cartoon if not for our Unc! Okay guzy, bring it on, I’m heading into the Sunday puzzler all caught up…still!!
