English: Cable salad in my house. Someone had cut my neutral and repaired it by luster terminal without accuracy lining. Despite this cable salad is quite fire-hazard, local electricians don’t want to fix this problem, cause it will take time and deprive them to drink alcohol during working day. So, I’m only person, who servicing it for free. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Answer:  DOWN TO THE WIRE

(Does this blog even reach groaners?  If you’re a fan of The Jumble you have to be a fan of puns.  Right???  None of today’s clue words are new, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I actually had to think for a minute to get “input”.  Ya never know!  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  Another fine jumble, that didn’t give anything away.  The whole set up in the cartoon’s dialog pretty much made it a no-brainer, for me.  I think the expression must originally come from horse racing.  I could be wrong, but it makes sense to me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A shopping cart flipped upside down forms a cage that I use to protect myself from consumerism.”   —   Jarod Kintz

(Clever.  I wish it were something so simple.  Automobiles causing pollution, or climate change . . . due to global warming, is not the malady itself.  It is merely one of the multitude of symptoms of consumerism, that is all too quickly threatening a reality that is much more fragile than many of us ever thought.  We must keep the entire cycle of consumerism in mind to understand just what we are doing to our planet.  There’s no:  “Don’t worry.  We’ll make more!” when it comes to life-sustaining planets.  Be well . . . be circumspect and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
