Answer:  HIGH KOALATY

(This might be the best, stinky pun I’ve ever seen!  It’s hilarious!  All of today’s jumbles are new, from my perspective.  And, we seemingly have two new clue words, in “blitz” and “shrank”.  They both kind of surprised me, but I’m fairly sure we’ve seen “shrank”, one time over the last two months.  We’ll just leave it up to the big boss-man, ralis95.  He can either enter it into his clue word database, in silence, or he can grace us with a Yea or Nay.  The answer letter layout was a superlative jumble in itself.  I think it gave away nothing whatsoever.  And, I don’t think it was an easy solve either.  I can see a number of people struggling to get this one.  Even the cartoon exceeded my usual expectations.  I love the perspective of looking on the tree-house from above.  And the koala characters are classic.  She, the wide-eyed bit of a bimbo, and he the lecherous lothario.  Nowadays they call him a “playah”.  Lots of fun today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/18/14

It doesn’t matter what story we’re telling, we’re telling the story of family.”   —   Erica Lorraine Scheidt

(Not a particularly inspiring quote . . .  from someone I’ve never heard of.  But then again, I am not well read . . . at all.  It looks like they’re on a family kick . . . for the holidays, I suppose.  But, family is important . . . always.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
