Answer:  FLY THE COOP

(Most likely the origin of the expression!  More or less.  All of today’s clue words were old favorites.  And, three of the jumbles came up as new.  Surprisingly, we’ve seen “cugorh” before.  Great jumble.  Even “areop” took me a few seconds.  The answer letter layout made for a dandy of a jumble.  And, the cartoon is a wonderful bucolic? prison scene!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    GROUCH gave me the most problem today. And in the full sized cartoon, there’s a chicken inside the left coop on the upper tier reading a book. 🙂

    You know, Damid, I saw that chicken, but didn’t notice that she was reading a book. I think the two main characters’ combs were a little too distracting for me! Now that I’m looking more closely, it looks like the one chicken in the background, eating, looks like she’s hiding her head in the ground! — YUR
