Answer:  BUY COMMITTEE

(Maybe not the funnest pun in the book, but it’s still a pun.  I am very surprised that WordPress didn’t question that word.  If Merriam-Webster’s doesn’t acknowledge it as an adjective then why would stodgy, old, English WordPress give it a pass???  Hmm!  People under 50 seem to use it all the time, so maybe that’s why.  Oh, well.  No new clue words today.  I wouldn’t necessarily call them old favorites, but they’re definitely not new.  Three of their jumbles did come up as new though.  We have definitely seen “cribh” before.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic jumble.  But, the leading nature of the clue/question, along with the quotation marks, and the cartoon’s dialog, kind of made the answer pretty self-evident.  The cartoon was very effective.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    The words were instant for me. I also figured out BUY instantly. COMMITTEE took some unscrambling, but it only took a few seconds.
