(Nice, stinky pun!  It didn’t hit me instantly.  I had to think on it a minute.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  The answer letter layout was another great jumble.  So many vowels!  The cartoon looks like an attempt at the television medical drama:  House.  But, Dr. Gregory House usually sported a three to four day growth of stubble!  The general shape of the face, and the cane, lead me to believe that this is based on the show that I once so enjoyed.  I always had the hots for Dr. Lisa Cuddy.  There was no mistaking her for a boy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I think this is his version of:  Learn from your mistakes.  Victories might be good for your ego, but you get much more out of trial and error, in terms of understanding . . . and appreciation.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  All the recent photos of Zuckerberg, provided by Zemanta, seem to be “owned” by Getty Images.  This 8 year old – free – photo only came up as I typed this observation.  I don’t dig Getty’s “Terms of Use” consent requirements.  The internet should be open and free.     YUR
