Answer:  REMOTE CHANCE

(That’s a good stinky pun!  Maybe our friend will have a little luck during a commercial?  There were no new clue words today, and only two of the jumbles were new.  The ones for “eagle” and for “trauma” were new, to me.  The answer letter layout was an excellent jumble.  It was nicely cryptic.  I knew that CHANCE had to be one of the words, but I wasn’t even thinking REMOTE until I looked at the leftover letters.  Then it hit me.  Only then did I noticed who was holding the remote in the cartoon.  Very nicely done, guys.  Hope everyone has a relaxing weekend.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —  YUR
