Answer:  WICKEDPEDIA

(I can see this one being the start of a “Wiki” theme, folks!  If it made you groan once . . . it will make groan again and again.  From my copy of the ralis95 clue word database, “career” is a new word.  Although, it seems very familiar to me.  Maybe it was one of those ones that slipped by on a Sunday???  All of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  I really liked the one for “impair” though.  Great job on the answer letter layout.  Nicely cryptic.  The cartoon is very humorous.  Lots of fun detail.  The black cat has a mouse in its mouth.  The book of spells has opened up like a laptop!  And, the witch in the foreground looks like a drag-hag!  It must be some guy that Jeff is mad at!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.”   —   Irish Proverb

(Word to the wise:  Never mention your sweetheart and your wife – as two separate entities – in a single sentence.  Believe me, you’ll live a much longer and happier life for heeding these words.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
