(Don’t be a drudge, and trudge through the sludge, because you won’t budge from your grudge.  Give yourself a nudge, and go eat some fudge!  Notice I said some.  Too much and you become a pudge!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  UNDER WRAPS

(I was going to say DRAWN SUPER, but then I thought:  Sure, Knurek has a big ego . . . but, would Hoyt allow such a thing???  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles are new.  We have all seen “lepsl” before.  The answer letter layout was a well thought out thing of beauty.  It led me in a slightly different direction.  The cartoon was actually very good.  I wonder if ralis95 can make out those hieroglyphics?  Chances are pretty good that those slave boys are going to be offed, and sealed up with the mummy.  Kinda puts a chink in the old saying:  Good work is its own reward.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
