Answer:  OF ALL TIME

(A very timely pun!  Today is the day that Great Britain votes on whether to remain – Bremain – or exit – Brexit – the European Union.  They’re saying that the vote is too close to call, as of this morning’s newspaper.  A Brexit victory would have a negative ripple effect on international markets, and could put Great Britain behind the eight ball for a good number of years, according to the “experts”.  Let’s hope that cooler heads prevail!

No new clue words today, yet all of the jumbles came up as new!  I only hesitated on “hraleb” for a couple of seconds.  The answer letter layout was an excellent jumble too.  I don’t think it gave away a thing.  Great likeness of the clock tower.  Typical teens.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Easy peasy! I took a second to get FLING, but the rest were instant, including the final answer. Great jumble on the answer letter layout but it was too obvious to hide no matter how it was jumbled.

    A welcome relief from yesterday’s *tough* Jumble, and one of the easiest – not OF ALL TIME, but in recent memory! I wonder how Dave & Jeff timed this Jumble? It’s not like they’re trying to play FOOTSIE with the FTSE! Let’s not POUND this one into the ground …

    HERBAL took some time. The answer took a bit as well since the first couple of tries in my mind didn’t work out; not enough or missing letters. But I got it in the end.

    How is it that no one here tried to correct us by telling us that Big Ben is the name of the bell and NOT the clock? Believe me, many people did in emails. Of course, I’ve never heard anyone say, “Here’s a picture of us in front of Great Clock in the Elizabeth Tower of the Palace of Westminster in London.”
    And it’s funny, if you google search images of Big Ben, not one picture of a bell. Go figure.

    Stinkin’ Limey nit-pickers!!! That’s what I say!!! (LOL!)

    I have never heard that before, Jeff. I didn’t notice that on Wikipedia, yesterday. Although it definitely does say that TODAY. But, at the very bottom of the Big Ben page, on Wikipedia, it does say this: “This page was last modified on 24 June 2016, at 08:58.” Do you think that THAT is a coincidence? Probably not!
