(I’m sure Groucho was born a smart-mouthed, middle aged, wise guy!  He might have looked like a baby, but it was probably like that Our Gang episode, where Stymie figured out:  Dey ain’t no babies.  Dey’re fidgets!  The Marx Brother’s movies and the Our Gang/Little Rascals shorts were the funniest things I’ve probably ever watched.  Although, The Birdcage, with Robin Williams and Nathan Lane, was probably the funniest modern era movie I’ve ever watched.  I laughed so hard I cried.  Laughter is definitely the best medicine.  I feel so cleansed after a real good laugh.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WRECKCOLLECTION

(Not sure if my Pre-Answer helped, or hindered.  It’s a great pun though.  All the clue words were all old favorites, but all their jumbles came up as new.  Once again, “cursor” gave me the most trouble.  But, not so much that I needed to back into it.  The answer letter layout was really excellent.  A super-duper jumble!  And, the cartoon was a beauty.  A real classic.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
