Answer:  FILL UP THE TANK

(Not that you CAN buy them, but if you COULD, you just know some no-dick d-bag WOULD buy a friggin’ tank!  You know it!  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “praat” before.  I always have to check myself with “khaki”.  I keep wanting to spell it “kakhi” like in Gandhi.  The answer letter layout made for a wonderful jumble, but Jeff’s great cartoon, and the very carefully worded clue/question made this wonderfully long answer a gimme.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I thought for an instant, before arranging the letters, that the secret answer was TANK UP THE TANK, but that would be over the top, wouldn’t it? Kind of like driving a Hummer or a GMC Yukon?

    I had a little trouble with PELLET. For the final answer, I initially thought that the middle two words were IN THE. I tried FULL for the last word but then the left over letters were TAPK. That clued me in to TANK and the answer occurred to me.
