Answer:  DAMAGED

(I’d say it looks more rav-aged!  But, there’s no pun in that!  None of the clue words were new, and only the jumble for “emcee” had definitely been used before.  Strange, that it’s a legitimate word though, considering that it’s a word made from an acronym for Master of Ceremonies.  The jumble for “abacus” is in alphabetical order.  The answer letter layout was nifty, but the answer was pretty obvious.  I bet Vijay solved it in 6.4 seconds!  Funny cartoon.  I always like critters!  Even varmints.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Hahaha UR. Sorry to disappoint you. I took 13 seconds. 😉 EMCEE took a little bit of thought (even though I have seen it before, in fact the exact same jumble) and the final answer also took me a few seconds. I agree that this was an easy Jumble.

    I’m enjoying this guy’s performance as Ethan Kelly on Rogue, an Audience Network TV series.

    I think I remember him from a short lived Fox series called K-Ville, and probably a movie or two. — YUR

    Why do these answers never match the jumble on my paper. They sure use too

    Maybe your newspaper is not carrying the *current* Jumbles, Bobbie. Many/most newspapers are not in great financial shape, so maybe this is a cost cutting measure your newspaper is doing, by running *older* ones. See if you can get through to your newspaper’s editor, and ask him/her if they’re doing that.
