(Cute!  A real groaner of a pun, set up by an entertaining cartoon.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  However, all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout was a fine jumble too.  It’s just kind of hard to hide today’s answer.  Love the cartoon.  Saturday’s Jumble continued to generate a lot of queries yesterday.  4066, combined with Saturday’s 5861, probably made it the biggest two day total on record for this blog.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
