Answer:  CLOTHES“-CIRCUIT TV

(A very good, stinky pun!  We even have another new clue word today, in “tirade”.  I hope ralis95 reads today’s email, and updates his world famous clue word database accordingly.  Most of the jumbles were also new, with the exception of “timsag”.  Three C words in a row was a little surprising.  I thought the answer letter layout was outstanding.  Before picking up on the pun, I thought that the second word might be IT.  The great cartoon, with its video cameras and monitors, really helped to make the solve much less difficult.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    OHGoodness, a GRAND jumbler!!!! And, to me, most of the jumbled clue words were diabolic-esque! And the answer..OY!! I was all over camera, surveillance, etc., etc. When I found CLOTHES in the clue letters it hit! I can’t believe I finished this puzzler in one day! AWESOME guys!

    Big brother indeed Unc (cute looking store!). There are cameras everywhere!! And even in the eyes of some mannequins! They do facial recognition, follow you around the store from mannequin to mannequin to see what you are looking at etc. Sooooo creepy!

    Take care all!!! LL

    BRILLIANT! This was really hard, especially with no image or dialog to help. I also thought for a while that the last word was IT, but it was hard to imagine an answer ending with IT. SO was another option, but it led me nowhere. Then, I thought that one of the parts of the first word may end in STIC, or that STEAL could be part of the answer — no success (there was no A in the answer letters). Finally, it struck me that one of the parts of the first word could be CLOTHES. The remaining letters clued me in to CIRCUIT and finally TV became evident. Really, really awesome pun! Loved it. I didn’t have any trouble with the words except for CAVORT, which took me a few seconds.
