Answer:  CHICKEN COUPE

(I’ve always heard that very few things smell as bad as chicken . . . poop.  Well, this pun might give it a run for it’s money!  It was a stinker, alright.   None of the clue words were new, but two of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen both “noyhe” and “curdee” before.  I did think that “cutsac” was a nifty jumble for cactus!  It took me a few seconds to figure that one out.  The answer letter layout looks alright, until you sound it out.  Switching the order of the clue words would have made for a more challenging jumble.  The cartoon is fun.  That rooster looks none too pleased that there’s no room for him.  He’s in a real fowl mood.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Hey, we all need a little down time, no?  We can’t stand toe-to-toe, throwing hay-makers, for too long.  That’s a recipe for disaster.  You’ll either get clocked, or you’ll punch yourself out.  So, take a little time.  Decompress, and recharge your batteries.  The next round is right around the corner.  Ding! Ding! Ding!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
