Answer:  FOGGIEST IDEA

(I love when Brits say:  I haven’t the foggiest!  Hey!  Speaking of Brit-speak, an old pal-o-mine pointed out an inconsistency in the current Jag-u-ar commercial.  The guy doing the voice over goes out of his way to say:  aluminium, in describing the wheel rims, or some damn thing.  But, near the end, he says the word schedule the way Americans say it, instead of the British “shedule” pronunciation.  I love Jags, but I never picked up on this, on my own, because I had always been tuning out right after “aluminium”.   I’m not sure if it’s a real Brit or an American actor, but my friend is spot on the money.  Maybe the director decided we don’t like the British pronunciation “shedule” more than we don’t like “aluminium”.  Or, maybe someone just goofed.

No goof with today’s Jumble!  We have one new clue word, in “gaggle”.  More work for our dear friend, ralis95!  His world famous clue word database continues to grow.  And, all of today’s jumbles are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout is a wold class jumble, but the cartoon’s dialog and the clue/question set the whole gag up nicely.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Whatever life throws at us, our individual responses will be all the stronger for working together and sharing the load.”   —   Queen Elizabeth II

(Our first QEII quote, at least since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  She’s right.  Individual efforts are important, but they gain strength through cooperation with others.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
