Arm wrestling: The contestant on the right is in an injury-prone or “break arm” position. His shoulder must be in line with or behind the arm, as seen with the contestant on the left. This is cause for a referee to stop the match. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Answer:  GET OUT OF HAND

(Not as tough as yesterday, but not exactly a gimme either.  I think a lot of it had to do with another great answer letter layout.  There was nothing obvious about it.  There were no new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up new for me.  Some nice letter groupings again.  In the cartoon, probably all the dialog, and finger pointing, were the big clues to the answer.  A nice little pun today.  Does anyone remember the movie?  It was back when Sly was cranking out two, three movies a year.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    A 12-letter solution broken into 4 words is always a challenge, but compared to yesterday, it fit like a hand in glove …

    No, I don’t remember the movie! Unc, you know so much stuff!!!!

    Today we had another doozie of a puzzler. Got the puzzler clue words unjumbled pretty quickly, but forgo and catnip weren’t automatic. The puzzler answer gave me pause for most of the morning. Was going through the exercise of pulling out four letter and three letter words and had the puzzler answer words in my lists, but it took a while to figure out how they worked together. Then it was like DUHHH! LL
