Answer:  A-THOR-ITY

(Cute!  If one of the characters had been a foul-mouthed fat kid,  named Cartman, and the guys provided another A, then the answer could’ve been A-THOR-TAY.  But, that might have been more of a stretch for the rank and file Jumblers, who might not be fans of South Park.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  And, we’ve seen two of the jumbles, with “tafsey” and “girheh” seeming to be new.  The answer letter layout was masterful.  No hints there, whatsoever!  The cartoon is a lot of fun.  It looks like some kind of Comic-Con.  Is the selfie dude, posing with Wonder Woman, supposed to be anybody, or just some fan?  I couldn’t tell.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Good luck, Unc Rave. I hope you will maintain your POISE, with HIGHER SAFETY. –RHO

    I had some trouble with SAFETY. I typed FEASTY initially, knowing that it might not be a real word. Got it after 10 seconds or so of thought. The final answer was nice (with a great answer letter layout) but was really hard for those (like me) who are not familiar with Scandinavian mythology. In the end, I guessed that the first letter was “A” (had to be a vowel because of the “an” in the clue and A seemed most logical) and I knew THOR from the AVENGERS, so I guessed that as the second part of the word. The rest followed. I am a fan of clues where you don’t really need to use your general knowledge to solve the clue. Today’s Jumble failed that criterion.

    I really enjoyed today’s Jumble! The clue words were pretty simple but the answer required a little thought before it just jumped out at me. A+

    On the other hand, you did UTTER some great thoughts, RHO. 🙂

    Well, y’all are on top of it today!! Grand jumbler. Thank goodness, after a bit, wondered who the god of thunder was and then thought it was Thor. Be safe Unc. Hope all is well.
