(And, of course WordPress does not recognize the legitimacy of diggity!  Goddamn Limeys!  It’s an American world, chaps!  Deal with it, yo!  LOL!  Okay.  The word IS of dubious distinction, but it’s certainly not a new word.  Just like there were no new clue words today.  But, all of the jumbles came up as new!  It took me a few seconds to see “fitted”.  I was thinking “fettid”, but that’s one T too many.  The answer letter layout was definitely a little different today.  I can’t tell if it would have helped those who aren’t familiar with the phrase, or not.  I saw it right away.  I dug the cartoon, because it’s a great summertime scene.  Grabbing a dog – while walking your dog – down by the shore.  I love hotdogs, but I’ve always heard that Chicago puts a lot of . . . stuff on their dogs.  I don’t dig that.  Purists insist on mustard, but I’m like a little kid, that only likes ketchup on them.  But, I do love chili-dogs!  And, when I eat chili-dogs I’ve been known to occasionally allow for onions, and/or jalapenos, and/or real cheese.  NOT that cheese “sauce”.  That stuff skeeves me.  Hopefully, it’s not too hot and humid where you are.  We are definitely in the dog days of summer!  It’s been brutal here.  It’s the hottest summer I’ve ever experienced!  Be well . . . try to stay cool and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I love ’em, too, UR! And this one was immediately apparent, although the chosen spelling, DIGGITY, is arbitrary; dictionary.com spells it HOT DIGGETY, with variants ZIGGETY or ZIGGITY. However, it always sounds exactly as transcribed by Dave & Jeff.

    I had some trouble with the final answer today. I initially thought that the middle word was HOGGITY, but that gave me DITDOG as the remaining letters. I tried a few combinations but nothing made sense. Then, it struck me that the answer could be HOT DOGGITY DOG, but that would need an extra O and one less I. Finally, I figured out that it should be HOT DIGGITY DOG. Clearly, I need to brush up on these colloquialisms. FITTED gave me some trouble too.

    I’ll Third the difficulty with FITTED. Took a couple of looks. The answer came fairly quickly, though like Hal, I originally thought the second I would be an E. I guess I should have thought back to the Jumble from the other day and stuck with the I before the E. 😀

    Love the dog too! That chili half and half looks wonderful.

    VJ–I wondered if you’d have a bit of trouble with that “saying.” LL
