Answer:  MOO-T POINT

(Be-yoo-ti-ful!  A nice, silly Saturday pun, and a Jumble that was far from easy!  Okay, I got “onion” right away.  But, the other three clue words were both brand new, AND extremely well-jumbled!   I had a bit of trouble with both “tumor” and “unplug”, but I had to back into “pastor”!  I’m not sure ralis95 can handle adding three new clue words to his world famous database, all on one day!  Has it ever been done before???  The answer letter layout was pretty spiffy, and didn’t give anything away.  The combination of the cartoon and the layout of the answer blocks – with the quotation marks, of course – made the answer fairly obvious to me.  Love the cartoon.  Jeff draws a nice cow!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR, you and me seem to have had an almost identical experience today! Indeed, the clue words were wonderfully jumbled. ONION was the only one I got right away as well. I had to think a little for PASTOR and UNPLUG, but TUMOR gave me the most trouble. In fact, it was my toughest solve all year – took me around 30 seconds (maybe a bit more) just for this one word. For the final answer, the letter layout was excellent and gave nothing away. However, I somehow saw “POINT” right away and then MOO-T became obvious.

    YUR: I can’t recall ever adding 3 new words in one day; two, yes, but not three. We also have to acknowledge the awesome ability of Mr. Hoyt in adding six (yes that’s 6 !) new words since last Saturday. The database now totals 3113 words.

    ralis95,

    Hey! A few new records! We HAD been going through a bit of a dry spell, and then Hoyt springs this bumper crop of new clue words on us. Very cool, indeed. — YUR

    Thank my Dad who’s been coming up with new ones for me of late. He loves the challenge. Every time I use a new word, it make it harder to find a new word. Eventually it will be almost impossible to add new words. I didn’t realize we had three new ones today. That’s seems impossible to me considering that Jumble has been around for 60 years.

    David,

    Every time we hit one of those little dry spells I start to consider the possibility that we’ve used up all the 5 and 6 letter words that can be the only combination of those specific letters. But, the fact that most of the “new” clue words are pretty common words, makes me change my mind.

    Tell your dad to keep up the good work!

    — YUR
