Answer:  SOUPED UP

(A beautiful pun!  Not at all stinky.  As a mater of fact, it smells like a cross between a minestrone and an Italian wedding soup!  Mmm!  I just finished an everything bagel, but now I’m hungry again.  Hey, kids!  Guess what?  We have a brand new clue word today!  Yes, Mr. David L. Hoyt has finally thrown us a “ruckus”!  The esteemed ralis95 can now enter this wonderfully descriptive word into his world famous clue word database.  Wow!  And, some of you people thought that the wedding of Harry Barry Bo Fairy and Meghan Markle Sparkle Farkle was exciting!!!  Clearly, this trumps that.  And, speaking of trump, guess who didn’t make the Royal wedding invitation list?  Kind of strange, considering that thing on his head kinda resembles a fascinator!  But, I digest!

All of today’s jumbles are coming up as new.  “scuurk” was the only one that gave me any pause, but it was a brief one.  The answer letter layout of “OEPPDSUU” was a lovely cryptic jumble.  It hid the answer very nicely.

As many of the Jumbles are wont to be, today’s was heavily reliant on the visual of the cartoon.  The corporate sponsor’s mascot, along with all the advertising on the formula one race car were big hints.  And of course, the bowl of soup, on both the car’s foil and the driver’s chest, were helpful hints.  A cute Saturday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    As a racing fan, I kinda figured it was Souped Up. Even though I didn’t spot the soup bowls. 😀

    RUCKUS … right up there with RUMPUS. Glad the Jumble team keeps coming up with new words, gives us a little challenge, and keeps ralis95 busy!

    Ralis95 lets me tease him a little, but he is actually one very active octogenarian, Roy! — YUR 🙂
