(Great pun!  A surprisingly challenging answer, for a Saturday.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, however two of the jumbles came up as new.  We have seen both “logio” and “duoia” before.  The answer letter layout hid the answer very nicely!  If it wasn’t for the pun aspect of it, this might have taken me much longer to get.  Yer Uncle is a regular punk rocker.  Though some of you probably think I’m just a little punchy.  You all know how I love the pungent ones.  And, you know I feel no compunction about punishing you with my lack of punctilios.  Some of you will probably want to expunge this post from your memory banks.  Hey, how about that cartoon?!?!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Nicely done, very clever! And got it!!! Would have had it in good time, however I was working with the wrong last four letters. I’d misread my I for an L and got nowhere! Then my husband told me to take another loo at my letters! Bingo! Take care all. Have a grand weekend. LL

    Great pun! Somehow I saw the final answer instantly. I had a slight doubt on the spelling of BULLION (somehow confusing it with BOUILLON) but tried BULLION first and it worked. 🙂
