Answer:  THE WORLD OF IT

(They look even more like Kang and Kodos!  If you’re not a Simpsons fan then you probably don’t know what I’m talking about.  No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “tidot” before.  The jumble “druvoe”  had me for a few seconds.  The answer letter layout was also nicely cryptic.  Because of the “W” I was thinking the first word might be TWO or WHO, for a few seconds.  And, because of the cartoon’s dialog, I was thinking that the answer might be more about food.  But, it didn’t take me long to correct myself.  Very fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Goodness! So much going on with this jumbler! First off that dadgum DEVOUR — yep, diabolically jumbled. I worked and worked with it. Then I started putting different variations I came up with in my handy dandy Franklin Spelling Ace and DEVOUR actually popped up. That hardly EVER happens. So, I was given DEVOUR. Why in the world didn’t I I see that when I was diagramming out the letters? Well, see above: diabolically jumbled!

    And how neat, DEVOUR; that is what the aliens were coming to do! The way the clue/question read I was thinking how could the first answer word not be a two letter word? Then WHO stuck with me and I found nothing that made sense. Then I started building five and three letter words. After a fashion I found WORLD. Tada! 🙂 LL
