Answer:  MASTERPIECES

(Now, that is a clever pun!  I really like it.  We stand at day 12, and still no new clue words!  Just sayin’, David!  But, all of the jumbles do appear to be new.  I didn’t find any of them very tough, but at least they seem to be new.  The answer letter layout was the best of the jumbles.  By itself, it was very nicely cryptic.  But, with the clue/question, the great cartoon, and it’s dialog, the answer was fairly obvious.  Despite being 12 letters long.  I don’t think Jeff thinks all that highly of jigsaw puzzles.  The ladies look kind of spinsterish.  At the very least grandmotherly.  And the guy looks like a slow witted slackard.  I just write it off as artistic license though.  I actually enjoy jigsaw puzzles.  They do take a lot of patience though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I realize that yesterday’s rant was probably a little too scattershot.  I could’ve – and probably should’ve – explained some of my gripes in a little more detail, but I type with two fingers, and it does take me longer than most to get these posts out.  One of our regular readers did reply, in detail, and I plan to address her issues in detail.  So, if you felt as she did, feel free to read my upcoming comment!      YUR

    Combining slacker and sluggard to make slackard… conscious or unconscious?

    You might be right, Mark! I’ve used “slacker” many times before. I don’t know how I came up with slackard! I ignored the WordPress spell-check, because the Brits don’t like some American words. You are probably correct! — YUR 🙂

    Well, it’s in Wiktionary as a “rare” variant of SLACKER. The suffix seems OK since it’s in words like DULLARD, DRUNKARD, WIZARD and BLACKGUARD (British pronunciation!). The Jumble guys might not be adding new clue words, but a 12-letter secret word is always a pleasure!

    Agreed, Roy! A 12-letter secret word answer is a Joy to behold! You know, and the guys know, that I just like to bust chops, sometimes. It keeps them on their toes! — YUR 😉
