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

    Thank you as always. Figured out “Teaming With People” as the answer but didn’t fully understand until your explanation.

    There seem to be different puzzles on the same day. The Jumble for 8/24/2014 I had online was NESwy – NEWSY, TyRId – DIRTY, VAShil – LAVISH and ORrEbb – ROBBER. The picture clue was obviously “ENVELOPE” 8 letters. However online the solution was 12 letters, “RESERVATIONS” Really screwed up.

    I don’t do the online one. Just the one in the newspaper. 8/24 was a Sunday though, and I know there is no Sunday (six six-letter words) Jumble available online. Also, neither one of those answers sounds like a recent one. Your online site might be posting old ones for Sundays.
