Answer:  CLAMITY

(A fishy smelling pun.  A little unusual, but . . . aw, shucks . . . I think that y’all musseled through it.

All of the clue words were old favorites, although three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve seen “warely” before, but it still tripped me up a little.  It’s a fine jumble.  As was “dinadc”.  A fine answer letter layout, too.  Not obvious, at all.

Great restaurant kitchen cartoon.  It looks like it might be a diner.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Candid was my tough word of the day. As far as the answer, I knew Clam had to be one of the words. I’m not from New England nor do I live there, so I don’t know if a chef really uses the word Quahog when describing a clam. And I don’t know if folks in that area call it Quahog Chowder. Out in the Puget Sound area, where I grew up, we used horse clams for our version of the chowder. As an aside, I only know of Quahog from Family Guy. 😀

    I’m pretty sure nobody calls it Quahog Chowder, Damid, but I could see a chef calling out for her Quahogs. I never really stopped to think about what kind of clams were used for clam chowder, as I generally don’t eat shellfish. I rarely watch Family Guy, as the dad is just too crass for me. I like Stewie and the dog and the wife. I’m a much bigger fan of doofy (DOH!) Homer though! — YUR

    Another “dumb redneck” here. Being from NC, and the land of bar-be-cued pork and chicken, I had no idea what a “quahog” is, but knew it was the key to the answer. Got all the clues, but couldn’t get the letters arranged.

    I don’t care for shellfish, but I love barbeque, woodi48! I can’t figure out this Mac laptop. I’m a Windows desktop kinda guy. — YUR
