Answer:  MAKEUP TEST

(Feels like a re-run to me.  It definitely wasn’t the most challenging of Jumbles.  No new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was an excellent jumble.  If the answer wasn’t so obvious the answer letter layout would not have been much help.  Great cartoon though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Nice little jumbler. Didn’t get stuck at all!

    In the Asheville paper the JUMBLE and the SUDOKU are giant sized. It’s great; you really get to see the detail in the JUMBLE cartoon. And it seems to make it easier to figure out the jumbled words!

    Take care all….LL

    LL,

    You must be accustomed to the reduced sized jumbles, that I frequently complain about. It sounds like the Ashville paper has the standard sized Jumble, that my newspaper carries. (My mother’s carries the reduced.) As far as I know, it only comes in two sizes. Maybe David or Jeff can confirm/clarify the issue. I think the reduced sized Jumble really takes away from the Jeff’s artistry, and makes the whole thing a little more difficult. Too many newspapers are trying to do it on the cheap these days. Unfortunately, it seems to be a dying art form.

    I print out mine from a paper that has an online edition that uses Olive software to create a PDF of whatever I highlight. When I print it, it’s full page and not fuzzy due to the increase in size. The detail is pretty good.

    We have nothing to do with the size of the Jumble. It is offered in one format. The papers then do their magic. Some paper’s it’s the size of a postage stamp. My paper, the Indy Star, has a very user friendly size. Players need to speak up to their editors and demand larger puzzles. I can’t believe they continue to not recognize how many of their subscribers take the paper only for the puzzles. But they refuse to make them large enough to be legible. Let them know. Those editors are a fickle bunch.
