Never follow someone else’s path.  Unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path, then by all means you should follow that.”   —   Ellen Degeneres

(I can just hear her saying this.  She’s like the queen of the run-on sentence!  Who doesn’t like Ellen Degeneres?  She’s smart, she’s funny, she’s compassionate, and she’s even pleasant looking.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Another great stinky pun!  Semi-tough too!  I got it, and love it, because I’m an “ass-man”!  Some guys are breast-men, some like the lower curves.  Rump, rear, bottom, derriere, butt, buns, can, booty, tuchus, tush . . . or badonkadonk, a shapely heinie will bring a shiny . . . smile to my face, every time!  “I said Lord take me downtown, I’m just lookin’ for some tush!”

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “prarol” having definitely been used before.  None slowed me up any.  The answer letter layout though was another story.  It took me a little while to see the pun.  I thought it was going to be CAR something.  But, just what was the question.  After ticking off CAR I saw REAR.  And of course, that left me with CICHOE, which gave me CHOICE.  Definitely NOT a gimme!

Cool cartoon.  I liked the 50’s cars.  Not sure who the guy in the suit, with the hair is.  And, I don’t know the meaning behind ALLSHKUP.  Is it an anagram of the hair guy’s name?  Is it some kind of Hebrew, or Yiddish?  Hey!  Wait a minute!  That’s Elvis!  And, the plate is short for “All Shook Up”!  Now, I get it.  Another reference to 1956!  Good going, Jeff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —    YUR
