Pre-Answer: Three Words – (7-letters) (2-letters) (5-letters)
Answer: PLEASED AS PUNCH
(Beautiful pun! No new clue words today, but four of the jumbles did come up as new. we’ve seen both “sufeed” and “lonelp” before. The jumble for “spiral” was so difficult for me, that even doing this Jumble for the second time I had to back into it. It probably took me a little longer yesterday, but I still had no recollection of the word when I went to do it today. I did it at my mom’s yesterday, but didn’t get a chance to post, due to having to drive 4 1/2 hours to get home. I left it there, so I had to do it all over again, this morning, at my house. I thought it would come to me instantly, like the first five words, but it was deja vu all over again! The answer letter layout was good, but the answer was obvious, to me. The cartoon is great. It looks like the guy’s mouth guard is spit out on his chest! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
