Hegel was right when he said that we learn from history that men never learn anything from history.”   —  G. B. Shaw

(Well . . . at least we learned that!  Individuals seem to be able to learn from history, but we collectively seem to have a kind of amnesia, when it comes to repeating history.  And of course, when you factor in ulterior motives, the same results just don’t seem to be a major concern, now do they!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  OUT OF THIS WORLD

(Pretty cool pun!  I thought the answer might be a little tougher, because a couple of the jumbles gave me a little trouble, but it was relatively easy to get.  I didn’t get it immediately, but it probably took me less than 30 seconds.  We actually have a brand new clue word today!  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to add “hubcap” to his World Famous Clue Word Database.  The jumble “pucahb”, for our new clue word, gave me the most trouble.  I didn’t have to back into it, but I did skip over it before coming back to it.  The jumble “pettio” wasn’t an immediate solve either, but when I realized it was a compound word, it helped me in getting “hubcap”.  All of today’s jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble!  Not obvious.  And, the cartoon did a great job setting up the pun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy first day of spring!  The Vernal Equinox arrived at 12:30AM, at least here in New York.  Today, daylight should be roughly the same as nighttime.  Enjoy the season!     YUR
