Answer:  DRIVEN UP

(Elon Musk must be kicking himself!  Why didn’t I come up with that idea?, he’s saying.  David and Jeff are going to revolutionize the auto industry!  Who cares if a car can parallel park itself?  Stay in its own lane, avoid a collision, or even completely drive itself?  What the world needs is a car that can unscramble Jumble words!  Never again will there be an accident due to someone having to look up unclerave@wordpress.com!  Oh, the humanity . . . that will be saved!  Heck, I had trouble with “OCAMIS”.  Not as much as with “COVFEFE”, but so far no one has gotten THAT one.

None of the clue words were new today, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  The guys have used “cipteo” before.  The answer letter layout was the best jumble!  It did not give the answer away.  The cartoon is fun.  The car looks a little like Herbie, The Love Bug.  But, I’m sure that is dating me.  Maybe, it’s more like a character from the movie Cars, but I never saw that.  My kids were already grown when it came out.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I love the bonus answers with a gotcha twist. This puzzle has that. The clue tells us the answer will contain a verb in the past tense, and the “e” and “d” in the bonus answer letters strongly suggests that first word will end with “-ed.” BZZZZT!

    I’m sure that might have thrown a good number of Jumble solvers, David! For me though, any time part of the answer is two letters long, and the answer letter layout contains a U and a P, that two-letter word is exceedingly likely to be UP. The car then suggested some version of DRIVE. I always welcome a little misdirection though!

    I’m with David; I figured on ED ending for the first word. I knew the second had to UP. Still, I had to struggle through PURGE and TANDEM before I had enough letters to figure RVIN wasn’t going to spell anything if the ED was correct. 🙂
