Answer:  TARGET AUDIENCE

(A fine pun, that hits the spot!  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  Four of the six jumbles are coming up as new though.  I can vouch that we have definitely seen “tulide” and “burtap” before.  I was a little disappointed with the jumble for “govern”.  Many people – yer uncle included – can immediately figure out a jumble when it begins, and ends, with the letters of the actual word.  The answer letter layout was a fantastic jumble though.  Good and cryptic.  The cartoon is great.  Hopefully, the one in your newspaper was big enough so you could read the billboard.  It was key.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There is only one thing worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.”   —   Oscar Wilde

(Nobody wants to feel like they’ve been forgotten, so it’s kind of reassuring when you hear that people are talking about you.  The only thing I don’t like is the old wives tale that says when you bite your lip while eating:  Someone’s talking about you!  Please!  Stop talking about me while I’m eating!  Because, once you bite your lip it swells, and then you’re more likely to re-bite your lip, making it even worse!  Yeah.  I bite my lip a lot while eating.  So, Please.  Refrain from talking about yer ol’ uncle during meal times.  Keep in mind that I reside in Eastern Standard Time, and kind of use your best judgement.  Outside of those times . . . jabber away about me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
