My best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes it for my sake.”   —   Aristotle

(But of course!  For who else’s sake would you wish someone well?  I think the old boy had gotten a bit jaded by this time.  This might have been a tougher solve, had I not seen/figured out the author, so early on.  I feel like I cheated.  Although, this is the first Aristotle quote in quite some time.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Caesar salad at Nichols Restaurant in Marina del Rey, California. :Comment: “A far cry from the original ;]]” — ONE of many variations. See e.g. Doral Chenoweth on this. As an eye-catcher in Caesar salad, it should be replaced by something like this, as soon as available. — any IP 12:43, 30 July 2007 (UTC) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Clue/Question:  We couldn’t come up with a new salad pun . . . if you have a good one – – –

Answer:  LETTUCE KNOW

(FANTASTIC stinky pun!  And, very well played.  The Facebook biz was a little misdirection.  And, I believe that Hoyt deliberately had the CULK in the answer letter layout to make some people believe the second word was LUCK.  Don’t let that barren plain fool you folks!  It’s covering fertile ground!  At least, LUCK was my first impression.  But, I couldn’t do anything with WEENTOT, so I then figured the second word might be KNOW.  That left me with EETCULT, which again, I think is a brilliant jumble.  But, the light switch did turn on, and I quickly got the stinky pun.  There were no new words today, but three of the jumbles were new, to me.  I could only verify that we’ve seen the one for “ninth” before.  “Knotty” is one of those words that spell out in alphabetical order!  Like I’ve said before, I always enjoy the cartoons that include our buddies.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
