English: The Bad Lieutenants training in Langar doing Vertical Formation Skydiving (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Answer:  DROPOUTS

(I love a nice ironic pun!  I bet that most of you would never have guessed that “pushy” is a new clue word.  I was a little surprised myself!  Our good friend, ralis95, will need to update his world famous clue word database . . . again.  I was going to tease him about being occasionally “ornery”, but I think I’ve done that gag before.  So, we’ll leave it at the new clue word.  The other three jumbles also came up as new.  The answer letter layout is another fine jumble, but it didn’t slow me from figuring out the answer.  Great cartoon.  I’ve been skydiving once, but it was the tandem thing.  It’s a great rush!  I wouldn’t mind doing it again.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Very nice pun indeed! I did have a fair bit of trouble with PUSHY. On the other hand, ORNERY was in my “toughest words” list but I got it instantly this time, so I took it off the list. The final answer came to me right away.

    I did not know the meaning of ornery. I just assumed it had to do with decoration. Thanks to your blog post, UR, I looked in the dictionary and now know what it means. 🙂

    Very often I look up something when I’m writing up these spoilers, Vijay. — YUR

    ORNERY took some time. And the answer took a bit as well. Though I did try the YUR advice, if the letters U and P are included, it could be UP. Well, not this time. 😀

    Only when one of the answer words is two letters long. — YUR 🙂
