(Very good pun.  No new clue words, but all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  “Wicked” is kind of a strange word.  It ends in ED but it’s not a past tense word.  Can anyone think of a similar word?  Fantastic answer letter layout!  I don’t think it gave anything away.  Interesting cartoon.  I’m not sure if that is supposed to be some famous guitarist, but I know Jeff is big into music.  It might explain the salesman’s strange offer of “I’ll buy back the last two you bought for twice what you paid.”  Unless it was supposed to be some kind of misdirection.  Hmm.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Ending in ED: INDEED comes immediately to mind.

    Indeed it does, Art! SUCCEED too! So, do you think there are other non-past tense words ending in a consonant and ED? (I should have been more specific.) — YUR 🙂

    Can’t think of any multi-syllable words under that rule, but WEED and TWEED come to mind. I started to go through the alphabet (a-zED), then think of words ending in that, but it’s nearly midnight and I’m tired. 😀

    Well, SHED meets your criteria.

    Art, you amaze me! I think I’m going to have to refine my criteria once more! — YUR

    Do you know of any other non-past tense, multi-syllable words, ending in a consonant and ED, than WICKED? — YUR 🙂

    OK, one that immediately comes to mind is DAYBED. I’ll ruminate for a while.for others. And as I go to send this message, INBRED comes to mind.

    CROOKED is another word I cab think of. This was a great pun! Took me a while to figure out. I knew that the last word was ‘EM. I first thought that the fourth word was TOOK, but that didn’t lead me anywhere. Then I tried WITH – no success. After a fair bit of thought (while trying to figure out what the third word was), I realized that the fourth word must be PICK (that would make sense for a pun as well). KNEW HOW TO followed easily from the remaining letters.

    More great words that have made it through my insufficient criteria, Art! But, it’s looking like another reader has come up the kind of word that I’m looking for! (It’s Vijay.)
    Thanks, Art!

    CROOKED is the kind of word I was searching for! It’s multi-syllabic, non-past tense, and it ends in consonant ED, like WICKED. And, I think they both sound like the word and ED, as WICK-ED and CROOK-ED, similar to past tense words! — YUR

    There seem to be a lot of ED words where the ending denotes an adjective. Words like LILY-LIVERED, AFOREMENTIONED, or WATERLOGGED would pass your test.

  12. 12 unclerave May 17, 2016 at 11:39 am

    I’ll definitely buy, LILY-LIVERED, Art! But both AFOREMENTIONED and WATERLOGGED at least *suggest* a past tense of a verb. I see with WATERLOG, they call it a “back-formation” of WATERLOGGED, and of course AFOREMENTIONED is just the more fancier, slightly more concise, way of saying *mentionED before*. I really admire your digging skills, Art! You’ve brought up so many great words!
