(Clap, clap, clap!  Good answer!  Good Answer!  What a popular, dumb-ass show that is!  Half of the time, I’m usually asking myself:  What kind of bozos were in that audience when they surveyed that question?  But, the show isn’t about real knowledge, or intelligence.  It’s more like the old Dating Game, or Match Game.  The set up is more to generate laughs.  It’s just light-hearted entertainment.  It’s certainly no Jumble!

And, speaking of the Jumble, there were no new clue words today.  And, only the jumbles for “stall” and “figure” were new.  Hoyt did a great job with the answer letter layout though.  The cartoon is pretty funny.  It looks like the dads, up top, might get into it as well.  Somebody better pick up that spatula.  Looks like the burgers and dogs are starting to burn!  Be well and enjoy this Labor Day weekend.  Drive safely and try to do good.  If some jerk tries to cut in from the shoulder on you . . . just let him.  There’s just no payoff to road rage, anyway.  I let some bozo get my goat on the Garden State Parkway yesterday.  Totally different situation.  Immediately afterwards, I felt like such an ass.  Take care, friends.)   —   YUR

(So THAT’S why I’ve been held back so many times!  I keep flunking life’s tests.  Our first Tom Bodett quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  I didn’t even know he was a real person.  I just thought he was a folksy voice-over character used in the Motel 6 commercials.  Shows how much I know.  I guess they didn’t leave a bright enough light on for me!  Apologies to Mr. Bodett.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  And, apparently, this is a well known quote.  See below.      YUR
