Answer:  COURT HER BACK

(A very refreshing pun!  Not the usual stinky kind.  We have two new clue words today!  Someone alert ralis95!  Yes, both “crummy” and “chunky” are soon to be new additions to the world famous ralius95 clue word database.  And, “otabu” is also a new jumble.  We’ve had “puret” before.  There was nothing given away with the answer letter layout.  It was another master jumble!  Dandy cartoon, too.  I wonder who the boys will be rooting for in tomorrow’s big game?  I’m hoping that Seattle can repeat.  I’ve had a chip on my shoulder for Bill Belichick since January 27, 1991.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(This was not an easy solve, despite the A and I being fairly obvious.  This is the very first Zora Neale Hurston quote since I’ve been posting these spoilers, and I really like it.  A great way to prepare for Black History Month, as she was a very accomplished woman of color, way before the civil rights movement.  If they were to make a movie of her life they would just have to cast Queen Latifah in the lead role.  Just look at those cheek bones!  Ah luvs me mah Queen!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
