Answer:  TOOTH AND NAIL

(That’s a good, stinky pun!  None of the clue words are new, but two of the jumbles appear to be.  We have definitely seen “innoo” and “shoti” before.  I’ll skip my joke about the urban – phonetically speaking – slang for a girlfriend, because it must be an old joke by now.  The answer letter layout was wondrous!  Nothing given away.  The cartoon is great, with its stack of 2 X 4s, blueprints on the table, some stray nails on the floor, and the carpenter in the background with nails in his mouth as he hammers one into a board.  Also, the dentist is holding a copy of her trade magazine, so Jeff has covered both the teeth and the nails!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Ironically, yesterday’s (Wednesday) New York Times syndicated crossword puzzle contained the same joke in its internal solution. Except he used “When a dentist and a *manicurist* argue, they must fight…” I know, the Jumble guys and Will Shortz do their puzzles weeks or months in advance, but I ask, coincidence??

    Wow! That was a big coincidence. I guess we nailed it!
