Visual Description:  Jeff’s inside fishing joke.

LRUBT  =  BLURT,  KALYE  =  LEAKY,  BEMMEL  =  EMBLEM,  DARWIN  =  INWARD   —   Giving us:  BTLAEBEIAD

Clue/Question:  When it came to whether worms or lures attract more fish, it was – – –

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

    This was certainly a fishy tale!!! Those blasted vowel started words. I did think I had them conquered. Not so with EMBLEM. INWARD came easily. I keep plugging away!!!

    Great cartoon!! The pictures look so peaceful they make me think that maybe I could sit out on a calm lake, keeping silent for hours on end until a fish came my way….the quiet part would be the hardest!

    Take care all!! LL
