Answer:  TOO MUCH DRAMA

(Very nice.  Not sure if it qualifies as a pun, but the game just says “surprise answer”.  They don’t guarantee a pun, folks.  None of the clue words were new today, but all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  None were terribly, terribly difficult, but I would say that “oduia” gave me a short pause.  Four vowels is pretty unusual.  The answer letter layout was another work of art!  Best one in a while.  Fun cartoon, with the tiny, stylized Thalia and Melpomene masks hanging below the klieg lights.  I fondly remember my days trodding the boards.  But, back then I always looked like everybody’s kid brother, so I wasn’t involved in any of those cast dramas.  No, wait a minute.  In my senior year I was in Happy Birthday, Wanda June, as Col. Looseleaf Harper, and I had just broken up with Marla.  Man, she could not compartmentalize her emotions.  Okay, so once!  I wonder whatever happened to her?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
