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

    I’ve been solving Jumble puzzles for fifty years. We just cancelled our L.A. Times subscription after as many years, and the newspaper we get now doesn’t include the Jumble puzzle. I am able to get the daily puzzles (four base anagrams) online, but can’t find the Sunday puzzles (six base anagrams) anywhere on the Internet. (The online Sunday Jumbles are four-word; they’re not the same as those published in newspapers.) While I am enjoying my subscription to your blog and like your solutions and accompanying banter, I’m wondering if you know of any Web site that provides the unsolved six-word Sunday puzzle. Thanks!

    Liberty Hanson,

    This question comes up from time to time. Unfortunately, the simple answer is: No! The six word Sunday Jumble is not available online. Why? Not sure. Maybe Tribune Media just wants it that way. If your public library is open on Sundays maybe you can go in and make a copy of theirs. Most libraries carry the paper. Other than that, I don’t know what to suggest. Maybe a neighbor who gets the paper, but doesn’t do the puzzles?

    Good luck. And, keep reading this blog! — YUR

    I’m guessing there are trademark or copyright restrictions that prevent you from posting a photo or scan of puzzle images even after they’ve been published. Oh, well. Thanks for the quick response, anyway!

    I’m guessing the same thing, Liberty. I have a relationship with Jeff Knurek and David L. Hoyt, but they have to abide by what Tribune Media says. And, this is just a little independent blog. — YUR
