Answer:  ON THE WEB

(Great stinky pun!  And, a nice social commentary.  My February 2017 copy of the ralis95 clue word database does not include the word “wicket”, but to me it sounds very familiar.  As if we’ve had it some time in the last few months.  Our good friend can always refer to his master copy, and add it if need be.  If it had been used before it was not with today’s jumble of it, as all the jumbles came up as new.  It took about a minute for me to make the “neuron” connection.  Maybe, I’m lacking in them.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  Very engaging cartoon.  It can’t be easy making spiders look cute.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Took me forever to get neuron, even with “cheating” by solving the puzzle before I did and knowing I needed an O, N, and E. I think one has to have played croquet remember wicket…….My grandmother called her garden fence gate a wicket too.

    . . . or, be a fan of some of those older British movies! “That’s a bit of a sticky wicket!”

    Maybe that expression comes from the garden fence gate! — YUR

    Btw, ‘sticky wicket’ was a Jeopardy answer last night or the night before. =)

    NEURON came a little slowly to me, too, ejwo. I knew right away that it was not a word of great RE-NOUN …
