Answer:  HIP HIP HOORAY

(I love it!  Great pun!  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  And, three of the four jumbles have been used before.  Only “onriy” came up as new.  I had a heck of a time with “lipral” to “pillar”.  I had to skip it, and come back to it.  At least I didn’t have to back into it.  The answer letter layout swayed rhythmically, and gave us nothing but aloha!  A great Polynesian cartoon, with a possible volcano in the background and a setting sun.  Uh oh, Jeff gave us tiki torches!  He must have come up with this cartoon prior to the clashes and tragedy at Charlottesville.  But, he was “politically correct” in including a female sailor!  We have many, many women who serve proudly in all branches of the military.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    On the final answer today, I sorta got the gist of what they were getting at right away, but maybe because I saw “Die Hard” the other day again for the first time in a while, then saw the three-letter-first-word in this answer, and the Y, I, and P in the solution letters, I then tried to go with Bruce Willis’ legendary rejoinder to Alan Rickman: YIP-I-KI-YAY… you remember the rest. Somehow that was wrong. Doesn’t fit the cartoon or other needed letters either. I got the right answer shortly after. I think I liked my first answer better anyway, even if it was Wrong.

    Love the line and the movie, but it doesn’t fit the cartoon and the pun, my friend. Maybe the boys can come up with a “Die Hard” themed Jumble though??? They occasionally use TV shows and movies. Might be hard to keep it clean though! — YUR

    Clue words were pretty straightforward for me. The answer, had to think about it. I was thinking about Polynesian terms, but after studying the cartoon a bit closer, the HIP part came to me. That was after trying to cram POI in there somewhere. 🙂

    Well, Damid. Maybe somewhere in Polynesia they cheer POI POI RHYHAH! — YUR
