Answer:  HOLE BUSINESS

(Better pun, today.  Yesterday’s was a bit of a stretch.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We heave seen “wherds” before.  The clue word “bossy” spells out in alphabetical order.  Nice long answer letter layout.  Might have been tougher if “exile” and “bossy” were swapped.  Maybe not.  Great cartoon.  All things being equal, I like outdoor scenes better than the indoor ones.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Today’s went quickly for me. I liked SHREWD in particular. All the clue words came to me easily, as did the answer.
    I can see how Vnaj can do these quickly, but even so, the way I do the puzzle I’ll not approach his quickness.

    I agree, UR, that the previous day’s pun was a little belabored. This one went very smoothly. Got all four words instantly, and figured out HOLE right away. Unscrambling the rest was easy.

    It took me a few moments to get UNTOLD and it took me a bit longer than usual to get the final answer (I wasn’t able to get “HOLE” right away :/). Otherwise, the rest of the jumbles came instantly and I agree that this pun is definitely better than yesterday’s!
