Visual Description:  Possibly Rock Bass.

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

Clue/Question:  The fish that started their own rock band were – – – 

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

    I got this right away but still laughed, well chuckled, out loud at the pun. Notice how sometimes they put the pun word in quotation marks and other times not? This puzzle brought to mind legendary ’60s-’70s “groupers” such as the Beatles’ Apple Scruffs, Jimi Hendrix’s Plaster Casters, or Penny Lane (played by Kate Hudson) and friends in the film “Almost Famous,” based on the Allman Bros. Band.

    LOL! Actually, the guitar *bait* was set for Jeff Knurek. But, I think the guys are too busy with jumbleanswer.com these days. — YUR
