A Message Stuffed in the Butt
& Other Breaking Jesus News

At this point, whether Jesus, a.k.a., the Nazarene, – whom two billion call the son of god – has even existed, is beside the point. A busybody for over two millennia, we dare naming J.C., ‘most likely to succeed’ as Fab Fav of all supreme invisible beings out there. (Please don’t curse).
News about the carpenter ran the gamut, this year. Archeologists, fussy about a tomb – his? – and a town, where apostles lived, came up again short of evidence. Just as skeptical scholars can’t say for sure he’s not real. Plus new Jesuses, and of course, the secret stuck in the butt.
But such biased coverage had at least one merit: it counterbalanced the continuous, and malodorous, flood of stories about some D.C. dude, who believes he’s god too. And naturally, the depressing headlines about the world we…

Answer:  HIGHELF“-ESTEEM

(Definitely NOT a gimme!  You had to kind of look for the word that wasn’t being used in the clue/question, or in the cartoon’s dialog.  And, of course, the quotation marks came in handy.  But, then I started worrying about the possibility of the answer not being “politically correct”.  Because just about ANYTHING you say, do, or even think can be offensive to someone these days.  You know what I say to that, don’t you?  F_ _ _  IT! 

But, back to this marvelous Jumble!  All of today’s clue words are old friends, as is the jumble “pehhny”.  The other five jumbles came up as new.  I almost started to write out merger instead of “emerge”, but I caught myself.  The others I saw instantly.  Hey!  the clue word “glossy” spells out in alphabetical order!  The answer letter layout gave absolutely nothing away.  It took me a couple of looks to figure out the answer.  The only vowels were the I and all those Es, so that was a help.  And then, the quotation marks gave me ELF . . . once I was fairly sure that that wasn’t offensive.  Which, of course led me to ESTEEM.  And finally, I got HIGH.  Well, I didn’t get high!  It’s a little early in the day for that.  But, you know what I mean.  Really cute cartoon.  Fantastic Santa, cute elves, great Big Wheel, a little mallet on the work bench, and some very patient reindeer outside the window, in the snow.  Lots of fun, with this great Christmas Eve pun.  Beautiful Jumble, boys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
