I write my own quotes.  Except this one.  I obviously stole this from somebody really clever.”   —   Brian Celio

(I like this guy!  I’ve never heard of him before, but he seems pretty chill.  For whatever reason, it took me a while getting this one started.  The coded THIS and what would become STOLE are what finally got me going.  Anybody else struggle with this some?  Be chill and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Possibly Rock Bass.

FEORF  =  OFFER,  PERIG  =  GRIPE,  SUUGNF  =  FUNGUS,  PAPERA  =  APPEAR   —   Giving us:  OEGRUSPR

Image result for rock bass

Answer:  GROUPERS

(And, some of their followers were groupies!  Groupers are generally large, unattractive fish.  Good eating though, I guess.  Rock bass are cuter.  And, they put up a surprisingly good fight, for their size.

All old favorite clue words today.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “perig” having been used before.  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  Great cartoon.  I like the scallop shell cymbals and the tuna can snare drums.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
