Answer:  TWOSDAY

(I don’t know for sure where it originated, but I remember back in the early ’80s when my – then – radio station, 102.7 FM WNEW-NY, first started playing two songs by the same artist, one after the other, all day long, on Tuesdays.  And, they called it “Two-fer Tuesdays”!  It grew popular very quickly, and before you knew it, every other station had something similar.  I’m sure some stations must be doing it to this day, but I can’t say for sure.

None of today’s clue words were new, but two of the jumbles did come up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “nuygo” and “tefsay” some time in the past.  The answer letter layout was pretty good, for a seven letter answer.  The answer made for a good pun.  I just hope that LindaLee’s newspaper ran the right day’s Jumble!  The cartoon is just some good, basic diner fare.  The wife and I just came back from our favorite diner.  We’ve never been disappointed there.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Very nice and timely pun! You are right, UR, about the great answer letter layout. It took me more than 5 seconds to get it. I knew, of course, that twins had something to do with the final answer. It took me time to realize that TWOS was the relevant word. I got the clue words instantly.

    Twos-Day on a Tuesday, that was a good touch. I figured one of the answer words was TWO, but in what combo took a bit more time. JAGUAR took a little time to get, but I figured one of the answer letters should be an A. But I got Jaguar first, then DAY was confirmed. 🙂

    Hey Unc. Don’t know about my paper, but the paper at the beach had it right!!!

    Grand puzzler. Loved the cartoon!!! And that twofer picture…sure takes you back. Probably in those days, my parents were brown bagging!

    JAGUAR….I finally got it…finally…totally diabolically jumbled, IMHO!

    I kept thinking the last word of the puzzle answer was TWO, but my remaining letters did not make sense, so I couldn’t solve the puzzler, and therefore could not back into JAGUAR.

    Unc, I don’t remember the twofers…I’m sure our radio station did it too,

    Take care all. LL
