Answer:  FAR SUPERIOR

(It definitely will see farther!  No new clue words today, but two of the jumbles were new.  We’ve seen both “zarro” and “tocipe” before.  The answer letter layout made for another fine jumble.  And, it’s a very cool cartoon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Right up my alley! I thought I got everything pretty much instantly, and yet, when I looked at the time after I solved the Jumble, it showed 0:12 (double my best time). Maybe I was not typing fast enough! Fun Jumble, though …

    So you’ve solved the jumble in 6 seconds before?

    Yes, Rit, and 52 times (so far) this year under 10 seconds.

    Poetic could also be etopic

    I don’t see any formal recognition of the word “etopic”, my friend. I do see it as a kind of mispronunciation of ectopic, which is a medical term for a pregnancy that is not in the uterus. Perhaps it’s a regionalism thing. I know that a lot of New Yorkers – the ones from New York City, that is – pronounce the word rapport as “repore”, and also pronounce the word allude as “elude”, and from what I can tell these are a kind of traditional mispronunciation. Bottom line, I think that Hoyt and company are safe with poetic being the only legitimate spelling of those particular letters.
