Answer:  PIECE A CHANCE

(A nice homophonic pun!  I’d bet dollars to donuts that you won’t find a cover of Give Peace a Chance on Tyga‘s latest CD.  Hey, if he doesn’t know Sir Paul he definitely doesn’t know John!  In all fairness to the pup, it was his security/bouncer who denied Paul McCartney, and company, entrance to Tyga’s Grammy after-party.  You have to wonder about those people guarding the entrance though.  I’m pretty sure Paul and Beck and Taylor didn’t pull up to the affair in a 1999 Honda Civic, or climb off of a city bus!  No.  I’m sure it was a stretch SUV.  You gotta figure that these people are someones importanté.  No?  Make a phone call to someone inside, ya bozo! 

No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles seem to be new.  I got them all right away, but they were all good jumbles.  The answer letter layout was another dandy.  And, the cartoon was a lot of fun.  A little trip down memory lane.  “Ev’rybody’s talking about . . . ” Rave-ism, Fave-ism, Dave-ism, Brave-ism, Crave-ism and being well and doing good-ism.  Right?)   —   YUR

    I really wanted to say PIZZA CHANCE, based on the great cartoon … but no Z’s in the scrambled words! Just the thought made me a little hungry.
    PS. Excellent, *long* Cryp today, staying on the presidential theme.

    It was, indeed, bizarre. Remember, a few years ago, when he won a Grammy, there was a twitshitstorm about who the f*#k was Paul McCartney. Then again, one wonders, why does he even care trying to get into these places? well well

    Do you know what’s funny, Vijay? I really hate it when someone says *piece of pizza*. It just doesn’t sound right. It HAS to be *slice of pizza*! But, I have no problem with *piece of pie*! Funny, huh?

    Wes,

    Paul is a fellow Gemini. We never (think we) get old! But, I think he was genuinely amused by the whole situation. He just rolled with the punches, and found another party. Probably one where there was no overwhelming constant baseline! — YUR

    I agree, UR. It should really be “slice”. However, I have seen “piece” before in previous Jumbles, so I just went with it.
