Answer:  DEEP DISCOUNT

(Good, stinky pun!  I was surprised that “odder” was NOT on the ralis95 clue word database.  Looks like our old friend is going to have to update it once again.  All of the jumbles appear to be new.  I really enjoyed the jumble for “porous”!  The answer letter layout was another dandy jumble.  Not obvious, at all.  The cartoon was a lot of fun.  Jeff’s really on his game.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Brilliant clue! One of the best of the year … I was thinking along the lines of UNDERWATER for the second word. Tried typing in UNDER but there was no R. Then, I was stuck for half a minute or so. Finally, the 90% off discussion clued me in to DISCOUNT, and THEN I saw DEEP (in hindsight, scuba diving should have immediately got me thinking of deep, but that’s the beauty of hindsight – it provides extraordinary vision). PERMIT took me a second or two, but POROUS was instant. It used to be in my “tougher words” list, but no longer.

    POROUS and PERMIT were both excellent jumbles, slowing me down for a few seconds! You think you’ve seen them all, but … the Jumble guys keep coming up with more!
