English: Annie Leibovitz is one of the most famous photographers alive today. She shoots for magazines, was Rolling Stone’s photographer, and has made images of many of the world’s most famous people.

(Does anyone, besides me, get confused between Fran Lebowitz and Annie Liebovitz?  Very similar names!  Surprisingly enough, they are only a year different in age, and Fran’s middle name is Ann!  You could say both are in the Arts, one being a famous writer and the other a famous photographer.  I wonder if they’ve ever met, or are friends?  Did Annie ever take a portrait photo of Frannie?  If they ever showed up at the same Oscar awards, the host could revise Letterman’s infamous Uma/Oprah introduction.  I know that kinda went over like a lead zeppelin, but I thought it was hilarious!  So did Dave.  Raves of a feather . . .  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DOUBLE THEIR MONEY

(A little bit of misdirection with this one!  The answer had nothing to do with cars.  The play was on their being twins!  Nicely sneaky, guys.  We do have one new clue word today, in “unduly”.  ralis95 – who sounds hale and hearty – will need to update his world famous clue word database once again!  Most of the jumbles were new, with the exception of “thirem”.  They’ve used that for “hermit” on a few occasions.  The answer letter layout did a splendid job of hiding the answer.  It took me a little time to come up with “double”, and from the leftovers I was able to see “their money”.  Jeff’s cartoon put me in mind of the Keno brothers.  Not sure if that’s what he was aiming for, but that’s what resonated with me.  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR
