I like to say there’s certain things you can’t take back:  one of them is ‘I love you,’ and one of them is bullets.”   —   Nathan Fillion

(Our first quote from Richard Castle, from TV’s Castle.  Also know as Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds, from Firefly.  I really liked the show Firefly, and I understand it has quite a geek/cult following, despite it only airing for 11 episodes, back in 2002.  The 2005 continuation movie, Serenity, brought the excellent cast back together.  It did a little better than break even at the box office, and remains a popular rental.  You can probably Netflix that, and Hulu the series.  If you like the original – Harrison Ford/Han Solo – Star Wars movies you will surely enjoy Firefly and Serenity.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(A good stinky pun!  When I was a teenager I liked to bake, so I could be full of myself!  Usually chocolate chip cookies, but sometimes brownies, or chocolate mayonnaise cake.  When I first heard of chocolate mayonnaise cake, I thought:  Gross!  Why would anyone put mayonnaise in a cake???  But as it turns out, it makes for an incredibly moist and delicious cake!  Have you read those articles that say that “moist” is somehow an objectionable word now?  How frigging stupid is that!  It’s like the clearly adult women who object to being called “Ma’am”.  If you’re not a teenager, and you’re either wearing a wedding ring, or you’re toting a kid or two, or three, then you are most definitely NOT a  Miss anymore.  It doesn’t mean you are old, it just means you’re not a kid anymore.  So, get over it.

Clue words?  Yeah, there were four of them.  None were new, but all the jumbles appear to be.  We haven’t seen “tariff” in a while.  The answer letter layout was pretty good, but I would have switched the order of both the five letter and six letter words.  You’ve seen that thing that says if a word starts and ends with the correct letters then the inbetweens can be out of order, and your brain will still figure it out?  Well, I think the same thing applies to short phrases like this.  LLMFLEIFFSHOU would have been more of a challenge.  I hope Hoyt is taking notes!  LOL!  Great cartoon.  The young cook looks so earnest, while the old chef has such a look of contempt.  The guy’s gotta get over himself.  A fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
