Answer:  ONE TIRED GUY

(Now, that’s a good, old fashioned, stinky pun!  Kind of a mild burning tire stink, like when you brake hard and fast on your bike.  There were no new clue words today, and only two of the jumbles were new.  The guys have used “seyzt” and “garndo” before.  For me, “garndo” was the most challenging.  I used to love the idea of dragons – especially Puff, the Magic – but, they seem overplayed to me these days.  My tolerance for “fantasy” isn’t what it used to be, I guess.  The answer letter layout was sweet!  I thought it did a great job of disguising the answer.  And, the cartoon did a great job of getting the idea across.  Although, her bike looks a little funky to me.  Something with the handlebars.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
