Some people never go crazy.  What truly horrible lives they must lead.”   —   Charles Bukowski

(This makes perfect sense . . . considering the author.  I guess you have to allow yourself the freedom to go crazy, once in a while.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DINOMIGHT

(Where is Jimmy “J.J.” Walker when you need him???  This made for a great pun!  M-80s, sometimes referred to as blockbusters, were alleged to be a quarter stick of dynamite!  But, I’ve also heard that that is an urban legend.

We had no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “tepico” before.  Here’s a – mildly – fun fact for you:  just as in today’s Jumble, “poetic” follows “podium” in the ralis95 clue word database!  The jumble for “podium” was the only one I didn’t get automatically.  I had to look at it for half a minute.  The answer letter layout was a Top Box Office winner!  A beautiful jumble.  The cartoon is a lot of fun.  From all the glasses, I’m assuming the viewers are watching it in 3-D.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
