Answer:  EGGCEPTIONAL

(Tons of fun.  Hope you all had a pleasant Easter Sunday!  I made a nice little day trip out to Long Island, to celebrate with some family.  That’s why this is a little late.  There were no new clue words, but all of the jumbles are coming up as new for me . . . again.  I thought the answer letter layout was fairly challenging, but I knew the answer HAD TO BE “egg” something!  Fun cartoon, with all the standard Easter stuff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  HAD A BALL

(The boys are constantly trying to keep the Jumble current and relevant!  Tonight is the culmination of March Madness, with the NCAA Finals, in Indianapolis, Indiana.  The Wisconsin Badgers vs. the Duke Blue Devils.  Should be a great game.  Then we can get on to baseball.

No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new for me.  The answer letter layout couldn’t possibly hide such an obvious answer though.  Great cartoon.  Shows the joy that the winners should display.  I’m not a fan of the glares and defiance, that some display when they win.  To me, those people have issues, that I wish they would just keep to themselves.  Big smiles, laughter and tears of joy are what the occasion calls for, not the exorcising of demons.  Just call me old fashioned, I guess.  Best of luck to both teams.  No injuries, and no fights.  Just a good clean, honest competition, guys.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
