Answer:  KHAN ARTIST

(A terrific stinky pun!  Very smart Jumble.  Art fraud is very big business.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, and two of the jumbles have definitely been used before.  It looks like “theyf” and “kahik” are new though.  The answer letter layout is a beautiful jumble too.  I don’t think it gave away anything.  The cartoon shows that – above all else – cartoonists are artists.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I’ve been a fan of Picasso’s since I was five or six years old, as a copy of Three Musicians hung prominently in the music room of my elementary school.  I love the dogs in the painting.  The guitar player stands out, and the one guy seems to be playing a clarinet.  But, I never quite got what the third musician was playing.  Can anybody enlighten me?   —   YUR
