(If the lute had been invented by Italian-Americans the answer might be ABSO-FF’N-LUTELY.  Bada-bing bada-boom!  Ah, fuhgeddaboutit!  Hey, we have a new clue word today, in “vinyl”!  Ralis95 can add another one to his world famous clue word database.  It looks like all the jumbles are new today.  It took me a few seconds to see “actual”, so for me that was the best of the jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a fantastic jumble.  I’d say that it didn’t give anything away.  Period cartoons are always a favorite of mine.  This is more likely the Renaissance period, and not the Middle Ages, but I wanted to go with some alliteration.  Does my love for puns and alliteration mean make me a weak-minded person?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    ACTUAL took me a minute as well, though VINYL took longer because I kept misspelling it. The answer came quickly once I paid attention to it.

    Let me guess. You tried to spell it VYNIL. (That’s what I first did!) LOL!

    I love medieval string instruments, and I’m no LYRE.

    I had trouble with VINYL, too, but because I just didn’t see the word for a few seconds. ACTUAL took me a second as well. I guessed the final answer instantly, but only after I typed it in did I get the pun. Nice one!
