Answer:  HOLEY COW

(I’m relatively sure we’ve had  other versions of this answer before.  But, it’s the cartoon that makes this one really special.  It looks like a scene from an old western, with the barbed wire fencing fading off into the horizon, and the mesas in the background.  The one guy kind of tipping his hat back was a nice touch.  If you have the reduced size Jumble you probably can’t see that one of the escaped cattle is running on his hind legs, and he’s carrying a shovel.  Great stuff!  None of the clue words are new today.  Three of the jumbles are though, with “cleet” having been used sometime in the past.  It’s amusing that the clue words kind of describe the current presidential election!  Oh, yeah.  And, the answer letter layout was also a nice jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    LOL about the clue words representing the current election. I had to think a little for CHAOS and SORROW. I knew that COW was the second word and the rest fell into place quickly.
