Answer:  NORSE CODE

(Moans and groans all around on this stinky pun!  No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new for me.  It’s a good thing I didn’t write down “dunge” instead of “nudge”, because I would have gotten the necessary letters to solve the Jumble, but I would have looked like a big dope!  “ugend” is a good jumble!  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic, but I can sniff out a stinky pun a mile away.  Loved the cartoon.  I always had a fascination with Viking lore.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If you drink much from a bottle marked “poison,” it is almost certain to disagree with you sooner or later.”   —   Lewis Carroll

(Because of the Y being the F, and where the first one was located, my brain thought that the Y had already been deciphered.  I wrote out, what I thought were all the unused letters:  JQVXZ – which is actually quite impressive for a relatively short quote – but couldn’t figure out what else could possibly go with _OU.  I looked again and said:  You DIDN’T use the Y yet, you ninny!  Not sure if there was any intention in this, or just my personal slip-up.  Don’t tempt fate in a reckless way, friends.  Stay away from those bottles marked “poison.”  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR
