Answer:  STRETCHING THE TRUTH

(She wasn’t the most petite bride in her wedding photo, on the bureau, either.  But, you can see the increase in her hippiness, and you can make out signs of stress – to be polite – on her dress today.  It’s the guy that seems to have had the bigger increase!  Too many brew-skis and not enough exorcise.  I’ve been there.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles have turned up as new.  Once again, I kind of saw “greesy” again, but immediately knew it wasn’t right, and wrote down “geyser”.  I also mentally played with “tranty” before realizing it was “tyrant”.  It’s hard to say that there was anything wrong with the answer letter layout, but I could somehow tell that STRETCHING was going to be the ten letter word.  And, THE TRUTH followed as pretty obvious.  But, it’s a fun pun and a fun cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    She was a hit in my Episcopalian household when I was growing up. Father liked to point it out that she as a ringer to my Mom. Her Majesty does have quite a lot to say and one day, she’ll bury us all, just as she did with so many presidents, dictators, and prime ministers. Long live, etc. Cheers

    I had no trouble with the words, but the final answer took a while. I knew that the first word should end in ING but initially tried HER for the second word. Unscrambling the other letters could only give me SHUTTERING HER for the first two words, which left TCTHT for the third word – clearly not right. Then, I thought that maybe the second word was THE. After some thought, I somehow saw STRETCHING, and TRUTH was then obvious.
