Just a hint, for those of you who might be struggling to get today’s answer.  The answer is definitely a pun, that plays on what you’re seeing in the background of the cartoon.  Gotta run.   —   YUR

(Well, alrighty then!  I thought more of you were going to be like me.  I got all the clue words instantly, but I found both the cartoon’s dialog and the clue/question a little awkward.  None of the clue words are new, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “shikw” before.  I thought the answer letter layout was . . . diabolical, to borrow a word from one of our truest followers.  I was seeing WORK and CROW and CORK, but I wasn’t seeing COOK for a few minutes.  The three words I was seeing were using too many consonants for the other four letter word segment.  But, I finally saw COOK and then COOKWARE, and then the pun sunk in!  The cartoon of Julia Child and Paul Cushing Child was very amusing.  I think Jeff’s wife forced him to watch Julie & Julia!  Be well and do good, friends.)   – – –   YUR

    This was one of the easiest of the year for me. ABSORB took me maybe a second. The rest were automatic, including the final answer. Nice pun, and well set up by the clue, dialog and background!

    Actually…the solution for today’s Jumble is easy. Or, easier than some in the past!

    Got it rather quickly! I was a bit intimidated when I saw Julia and the quotes. The quotes always intimidate me! Thank goodness COOK stood out in the clue words. Great cartoon and puzzler!! LL

    For some reason, TIGER was a bit slow. The others went quickly, and with the letters found, I got COOK right off. Once I got TIGER, the WARE/WEAR came right up.

    Julia was always my favorite chef!! – Thanks for dedicating a Jumble Spoiler to her.

    No Uncle, I do all the cooking in my house, so watching Julie & Julia was a pleasure. I saw Julia Child’s kitchen in the Smithsonian a few years ago. Wow! She had a lot of COOKWARE.

    Some days I think the answers are simple when a lot of you thought they were tough, so I guess a little versa visa is to be expected. I didn’t have to give up on it, or anything, I just wasn’t seeing it right away. So, I figured some of you might’ve had the same issue. Guess it was just one of those things! —- YUR

    Hey, Jeff! I never saw the movie, but I used to love to watch her show, on PBS, when I was a kid. She was so unusual and so entertaining! Almost as fun as watching Ernest Angley!

    Have you ever given up on a Jumble, UR?

    OMG UNC! Ernest mesmerized me when I was a kid. I’m sure I drove mama crazy telling her about the peeps who were HEALED.

    Vijay. I have failed a few times. One time I came up with a slightly different answer too. — YUR


    Ernest was THE character of ALL characters! “Foul deaf spirits . . . be GONE!” — YUR
