Answer:  A BUCK AN EAR

(MAJOR groans!  This is one of the oldest jokes in the books.  But, I believe the original gag revolved around pirates’ earrings.  Anyhow, there were no new clue words today.  Our pal, ralis95, can stand down.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “narmen” having been used before.  The answer letter layout was a nifty, cryptic jumble.  The cartoon makes up for the stale joke.  A real spiffy looking pirate, with a puffy shirt, pantaloons, snee, and a corsair’s hat.  And, we also got the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon!  All in all a fine Jumble . . . me hearties!  Be well and do good, friends.  Don’t take any wooden doubloons!)   —   YUR

Laughter

A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.”   —   Denis Waitley

(This first looked like a piece of cake, but it took a bit of work for me to get through it!  But, what a great quote!  Don’t be stingy with your smiles, people.  They can make such a big difference in a person’s day.  Share your smiles freely!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Zemanta wasn’t giving out free smiles, grins, etc., so I had to search for laughter.  So strange that they couldn’t come up with a smile that wasn’t owned by Getty!   —   YUR
