Answer:  DECOMPOSING

(Charlie Harper lives!  Sorta.  This answer took me a little while to get!  A testament to the superior answer letter layout!  It really was laid out brilliantly.  No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  I could only confirm that we’ve seen “sugie”  before.  The cartoon is the big treat though.  I didn’t catch it initially.  I thought:  Okay, just another zombie gag.  But, then I noticed the bowling shirt and the gold records on the wall.  And the ocean view from his window.  Then I realized that this once handsome zombie was Charlie Sheen‘s incorrigible frat-boy, song-smith character, Charlie Harper!  I’m a fan of Ashton Kutcher’s too, but the show really was much better when it was the original cast.  Jon Cryer’s character really devolved into someone with no redeeming qualities, and the whole premise just got more and more ridiculous as time wore on.  I was surprised that they were able to get 4 more season after Sheen left.  But, the season finale was very funny.  They did a great job of wrapping things up.  Kinda wish Charlie had made some kind of comeback.  But, it wasn’t to be.  Oh, well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    vincoe also scrambles to “conive” making the answer an impossibility. Each scramble word should be unique

    Novice can also be conive. Messed me all up…. 😦

    Russ and Peter,

    I think you guys are thinking of connive. I don’t think that “conive” is an actual, officially accepted word. If you’re seeing it online, make sure you can find a listing under Merriam Webster’s or O.E.D. A lot of the online dictionaries are for acronyms and slang. I’m reasonably sure that “novice” is the lone spelling using the letters “vincoe”. — YUR

    YUR, right you are! Apologies. 🙂
    Good puzzle!

    Perhaps there was an element of conniving to trap the wayward!

    I also show that CONNIVE is spelled with two N’s so that NOVICE is a good Jumble word. I could see how easy it is to think it was spelled CONIVE. I actually think that CONIVE looks more correct than CONNIVE to me but I double checked this to be on the safe side. Thanks!
