Have I got a mother-in-law — she’s so neat she puts paper under the cuckoo clock.”   —   Henny Youngman

(A little tricky.  I thought I might have made a mistake when I started writing out the Os.  Not a lot of words end in OO.  But, it all came together to form the King of the One Liners funny quote.  All that’s missing is a rimshot!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  TEAMING WITH PEOPLE

(Wow!  A 17 letter answer.  That is pretty big.  None of the clue words are new today, but I think all of the jumbling is.  They were all jumbled well, but the only one I had any real difficulty in getting was”palace”.  The answer letter layout was wonderfully cryptic.  At first I was a bit stumped.  But, after I paid more attention to the answer blocks I quickly decided the middle word was WITH.  Then the word PEOPLE came into view.  When I wrote out the remaining letters – TAENMIG – I was able to figure out TEAMING, which is a homophone of TEEMING, which makes the answer a valid pun.  Fun cartoon.  Great Sunday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
