Instructions for living a life:  Pay attention.  Be astonished.  Tell about it.”   —   Mary Oliver

(Kind of the opposite of how the American Corporatocracy wants us to be:  Be distracted.  Be benumbed.  Keep your mouth shut.  I like Mary’s way better.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Not sure if this is the poet Mary Oliver, or not.  It may be, or it may not be.  It’s all that Zemanta provided.     YUR

Answer:  CREEIGHTED

(Maybe this Jumble was inspired by The H8ful Eight (The Hateful Eight) advertisements!  Maybe not.  It works as a stinky pun, anyway.  We do have a new clue word today, in “league”.  It can now be added to the world famous ralis95 clue word database!  All the jumbles came up as new today too.  The word “hilly” is another word that spells out alphabetically.  The answer letter layout was a swell jumble.  If the cartoon, its dialog, and the clue/question weren’t so leading, this answer letter layout would have been tough to un-jumble.  The cartoon was an enjoyable historical peek at ancient history.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
