Answer:  POETIC JUSTICE

(A very nice, and long answer!  No new clue words today, but three new jumbles.  We’ve seen “curpse” before.  The answer letter layout was definitely nifty!  A cryptic jumbo jumble!  The cartoon has a semi “Smokey and The Bear” feel to it.  Maybe “The Dukes of Hazard”.  Don’t sass the sheriff!  Nowadays, you just might get shot!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Spruce was the tough word of the day. I got Mutter, but stopped to consider if that was the right word or not.

    That was a challenging bonus answer–nice work guys. I took the bait on the cryptic clue. “Rhyming” suggested to me a two-word bonus answer that would rhyme–they do that sometimes–especially when, as in this bonus answer, there are a number of letters appearing twice that could be used to make a rhyme. Fortunately I tried -ice first at the end of each word and also remembered that often “J” in a bonus answer is somewhat more likely to be at the front of a word than in the middle, which quickly got me to “justice” and a faster solution than if I’d kept looking for rhyme words to solve it. Sometimes I stay with my mistaken assumption too long, and other times I get lucky and quickly realize I’m off-track.

    Even though “good poetry” doesn’t necessarily rhyme, I’m a simple enough kind of slob to make the jump of “rhyming” to “poetic” without too much thought! But, I definitely know where you are coming from, David. I kind of felt that way about today’s (Sunday’s) Jumble. Based on my assumptions, I tried a few things, erroneously, but then I wised up!
