(From $100 to $15Million is a very nice appreciation, I’d say!  And that’s the 2011 price.  I suppose it could be worth even more by now.  Art is both fickle, and heavily manipulated, when it comes to value.  Especially nowadays.  Ehh.  Let’s get on with the Jumble.  No new clue words.  Not like last Sunday.  I hope ralis95 was paying attention to last Sunday.  He doesn’t get a Sunday paper, with the Sunday Jumble, so he doesn’t always check here, on Sundays, for new clue words.  Sometimes he’ll check the email notification that each post generates, but not always.  Four of the six jumbles came up as new.  I know we’ve seen both “dacrow” and vacide” before.  The answer letter layout was a marvelously cryptic jumble!  It gave nothing away.  You really had to pick up on the cartoon’s dialog and its character’s reactions – which are great – along with the clue/question, to solve the answer.  A not terribly difficult, but overall very rewarding Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  The above price could be for the set of Andy Warhol’s 32 soup cans.  I’m not sure.   —   YUR

    Oh, I get it now. Thanks so much UNC.

    I had a bit of trouble with hamper and coward. And though intimidated by all of the masterfully jumbled clue letters, I saw appreciated pretty quickly. And then much fell into place. So glad I’m not starting yet another week still working on Sunday’s jumbler!

    Awesome puzzler, and awesome notes UNC! LL
