Answer:  DEBAITABLE

(That is one stinky pun!  That smells like Chinatown!  There were no new clue words today, and only one of the jumbles, “lrubt”, was new.  We’ve seen “kalye”, “bemmel” and “darwin” before.  The answer letter layout was superb.  It was the leading nature of the clue/question, combined with the quotation marks and hyphens, that made getting the answer fairly easy.  The cartoon is great, but I don’t know who is who.  The fish, watching the argument from the water, is very clever.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
