Answer:  CAMEL LOT

(I love the smell of bad puns in the morning!  It smells like . . . camel dung.  There were no new clue words today, however three of the jumbles did come up as new.  We’ve seen “latyl” before.  I loved the jumble for “loaded”.  “DALEDO” made me think of the expression:  HOLY TOLEDO!  Which has been around quite a while, but was the favorite of Max Klinger, on M*A*S*H*.  A great TV show.  The answer letter layout was alright, but would’ve been better if they’d have switched “tally” and “chomp”.  But, with even doing that, the great cartoon makes the answer pretty obvious.  Before I read the cartoon, I was thinking the king was one of the three wise men.  And, for whatever reason, my mind was going to camel toe.  Well, we all know the reason for my thinking.  I just have a dirty mind.  Thankfully, our Jumble friends don’t!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
