Answer: FIRED UP
(Nice way to ease into the week. None of today’s clue words are new, but all of the jumbles seem to be. The answer letter layout was nicely jumbled too. The cartoon character has kind of a crazed look. It looks like he likes using plenty of lighter fluid! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Pre-Answer: Two Words (7-letters) (7-letters)
Answer: SHINING EXAMPLE
(Fun little pun! Reminded me of that ’70s song, which led me to a fun Youtube video, which features a true cinematic classic: “Cool Hand Luke”! It’s remarkable how many of the chain gang went on to have great Hollywood careers. Let’s see how many you guys can spot. I’ll post the video at the bottom of today’s spoiler.
No new clue words today. Four of the jumbles came up as new, but both “sopsig” and “tomino” have been used before. The answer letter layout was nicely challenging. I don’t think it gave away anything. The cartoon is also great, with the Jumble-mobile, and a boss who looks very much like the fully corrupted Walter White! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
“I learned compassion from being discriminated against. Everything bad that’s ever happened to me has taught me compassion.” — Ellen Degeneres
(A very personal statement, in my view. I know plenty of people who know, and have, and show compassion who were not discriminated against. And, I know people who have experienced much discrimination who are nothing but bitter, and far from compassionate. I’m glad that she has taken the bad and made it into something good though. She seems to be a very cool person. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
“What is commonly called friendship is only a little more than honor among rogues.” — Henry David Thoreau
(Which is probably why he was more than somewhat of a recluse! There can be times when this is true, but it’s not exactly the healthiest of attitudes. Be well and do well, friends.) — YUR
