Answer:  SKIMMED IT

(It’s a little like cheating though, isn’t it.  Unfortunately, I only read at a sub-vocal level.  But, I do remember being chastised by shop owners for reading comic books and magazines for a little too long, when I was a kid.  They don’t make money if you read it there, and walk away without purchasing anything, now do they!

There were no new clue words today, and only two of the jumbles were new.  We have seen both “turms” and “nunsek” before.  The answer letter layout was a nice little jumble too, but it couldn’t hide the pun from me.  I think today’s answer would play better with the slightly older crowd.  My daughter, who is 25, has always known it as fat-free milk.  She only knows the word Skim because of my referring to it as such.  Fine cartoon, but I was looking for a hidden Jumble reference in it, and I couldn’t make out what was on the guy’s ball cap.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Yep, Skim Milk. I also remember Whole, 2%, 1%, 1/2%, and Skim. I didn’t like Skim, was like water. I only bought it if they were out of 1/2% and I’d also buy 1% and mix it with Skim. 😀

    INDUCT was the trouble word for me today. Even when it fit the answer, I wasn’t initially sure it was right. 🙂
