Visual Description:  The donation station.

LAVEV  =  VALVE,  LATYL  =  TALLY,  CYMLLA  =  CALMLY,  APSYSB  =  BYPASS   —   Giving us:  VATLAMPS

Clue/Question:  The blood donors didn’t mind waiting, because the facility had a – – – 

Image result for Dracula

Answer:  PLASMA TV

(A great stinky pun to start the work week!  It even took me a couple of minutes to see the answer.  I kind of doubt that vampire movies would put prospective blood donors at ease, but it makes for a good gag.

All of today’s clue words were in a classic vein.  However three of the jumbles were of the new type.  The fourth, “latyl”, was not a factor, as it has definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was far from anemic.  Only eight letters long, but fortified with iron.  You could say it thrilled me to the marrow, but “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” might get jealous.  Count on it.

Nice medical waiting room cartoon.  I just can’t figure out if the figure at the bottom of the cartoon, between the guy and the plant, is the back of some lady’s head, or another plant!  Enjoy the Dracula movies while you can, folks, because I think pretty soon the #MeTooMovement is going to outlaw/ban vampire movies.  They romanticize the misogynist notion that women actually want to be bitten, don’t ya know!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    LOL! I was hoping for a *positive*, Babs. I did pile on the peripheral puns, but I stopped short of a platelets reference. I knew that would stop the bleeding. — YUR 🙂

    Arrrrgh! As Cathy Guisewhite used to say. Loved her cartoons. Be well Unc.

    This was potentially tough for any solver more focused on the available letters than the clue and cartoon, because the two letter word is vowel-less, very rare for Jumble, with no hyphen involved. I got lucky and saw PLASMA in the available letters quickly, otherwise I might still be going at it. Good pun and puzzle.

    Plasma TVs have been gone from stores for about five years now, though of course there are some older ones still in use. A decade ago, plasma sets were state of the art, and now, they’ve been supplanted by much cheaper and better TV technology.

    I knew TV had to be part of the answer. But I didn’t see Plasma right off, needed a bit of mulling over first. And I’m with you. I thought that white blob was a plant at first, then I decided it could be an old lady. 😀

    Great minds, Damid! — YUR
