Answer:  POUND FOR POUND

(This pun really hit the nail on the head!  The guys really did a bang up job today!  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  The five letter clue words I saw instantly, but the six letter clue words were pretty challenging.  I kept wanting PODIUM to be IMPOUND!  The needed letter groupings in the clue words couldn’t be knocked!  The answer letter layout looks like it could be a strange word, or name.  And, if the clue/question were worded differently, and the answer was only two words – of eight letters and five letters – the answer could have been PROFOUND POUND.  The guys could hammer out a whole new Jumble, by recycling this some!  Go ahead guys, and take a whack at it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you’re still a rat.”   —   Lily Tomlin

(This is one where I probably could have saved on toner and paper, as it was pretty easy, with THEs and THATs and lots of words with E.  Although, it did take me a little more than half way through before I realized she wasn’t talking about a CAT!  This sounds like an Edith Ann-ism.  Love Lilly Tomlin!  A great talent.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
