(They need to call the Better Business Bureau!  Beautifully set up pun.  And, another thirteen letter answer!  I always like the longer answers.  They usually present more of a challenge.  No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles did come up as new.  The answer letter layout is awesome!  I don’t think it gave anything away, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some of you struggled to get today’s answer.  Great outdoor scene cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Wouldn’t it have been funny if the celebrated ‘sinking sailboat’ was in the background, or a sinking rowboat! =D The usual super puzzles and pictures have been even super-er, the last many days! =)

    Right on, LL. I had heard of “bait and switch” but did not know what it meant and so had a hard time solving this one. I guessed that AND was the second word but couldn’t get anything sensible for the other two words. Then, I tried BIT for the second word – no success. Finally, after more than two and a half minutes, it struck me that the first word was BAIT. Then, the answer followed quickly. I almost gave up on this one. Brilliant pun!

    After seeing the answer, I can’t believe that this one stumped me.
