Answer: PREWRECKQUISITE

(A beautiful groaner of a pun!  I am very impressed with today’s Jumble.  None of today’s clue words are new, but five of the jumbles appear to be so.  Hoyt has definitely used “wdorac” before.  I thought all of the jumbles presented a nice challenge.  No gimmes today!

The answer letter layout was an impressive 15 letter jumble.  Nothing about it appears to be obvious.  And, I wouldn’t be surprised if this stumped some of you, for a while.  I let my daughter and her boyfriend play around with it, and he got it after a few minutes.  The word “mandatory”, in the clue/question, was definitely the key.

Classic suburban family scene in today’s cartoon.  I was a little surprised that Jeff didn’t take the opportunity to make the car a Jumble-Mobile.  Usually, he puts a big “J” on the grill.  Maybe the Jumble-Mobile is a little to high end for a teen?  No biggie though.  A very satisfying Sunday Jumble, any way you look at it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
