(Great gag!  There are no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles are.  I can only confirm the one for “agency” has been used before.  The answer letter layout was good, but it’s hard to hide the short answers.  The cartoon is great.  It reminds me of a lot of things.  Part Coneheads, part cheesy Cyclops movies from the 40’s and 50’s, and part A Christmas Story.  Little Ralphie Cyclops can’t have that Red Ryder BB gun, because he might shoot his eye out.  And then where would he be?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    DOH! You caught me, Anonymous! LOL! I don’t know if all the regulars are too reticent to correct their ol’ uncle, or what. Maybe, they’re used to my flubs, and they know what I meant? Anyway, thanks for being observant and notifying me of my faux pas. I will correct it, directly. (It will read: There are no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles are.)

    I’m terrible at the jumbles, but can usually just figure out the main answer 20% of the time just by looking at the picture and the number of spaces. I should have figured it has something to do with the action figure. But “A-Eye Pod” just didn’t make sense
