Answer:  BACKLOG

(This was one of those Jumbles where you just look at the picture and the letters, and you don’t even need to read the clue/question!  It probably didn’t hurt that one of the clue words was “aback”.  Subliminally, that might have set the whole thing up.  We have one new clue word today, in “ballot”.  Somebody needs to alert ralis95!  His clue word database needs another update!  All of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  I actually like the answer letter layout . . . as a kind of stand alone jumble.  A very masculine, macho drawing today.  I half laugh / half shudder at the majority of these pickup truck commercials.  They are so manipulative.  I even considered buying one, at one point about 10 years ago, because of their VERY effective marketing.  But I, figuratively, slapped myself back to my senses.  I’m a suburban dad who mainly drives back and forth to the office.  If I need some sheet-rock, or plywood, I bring my son with me to Home Depot or Lowes and we strap it to the roof of the car, drive home with the flashers on, and try to avoid steep hills.   If you own a boat, or trailer, or you live in the sticks, or you work in construction, etc. then owning a truck makes sense.  Otherwise, you are just fooling yourself.  Well, really you have been fooled.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Hear, hear, Unc Rave! The overwhelming majority of guys (and gals!) I see in F250s and Blazers are just driving back and forth from suburbs to town, occasionally stopping at Starbucks and Sonic. Besides, the truck you were looking at probably would have been too small for the one time you really needed it. Still, you gotta admire the advertising … the folks in those commercials look so good, and they’re having so much fun!
