A man is known by the company that keeps him on after retirement age.”   —   Source Obscure

(Yeah.  Good luck with that!  The majority of companies today don’t even care if you make it to retirement age with them.  It’s so much cheaper to hire a kid right out of college, pay them squat, and run them ragged for three to five years, rinse and repeat.  Corporate loyalty is all but dead.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer: FARE SHARE

(I don’t know about that!  I think a pizza – that he is going to partake of anyway – doesn’t put much of a dent in his half of the rent and cable bill.  Doesn’t sound fair to me.  It’s a nice little distraction though, especially if the gamer dude is motherfungry!  Yeah, I had to look up that slang.  But, it makes for a good, stinky, Jumble pun.

All of today’s clue words are already on the ralis95 clue word database.  However, all of the jumbles came up as new.  Ironically, the only one I struggled with was “thearf”.  Being a dad you’d think I would’ve seen it right off the bat.  Nicely cryptic answer letter layout.  The answer doesn’t jump out at you.  The clue/question set the whole thing up.

Nice cartoon of a shared apartment.  It’s tough for a lot of people to afford a place just for themselves.  Wages and salaries have been lagging rents for a long time.  I like that guy, Jimmy McMillan, the founder of The Rent is Too Damn High party!  He’s a bit of a one trick pony, but he’s definitely a colorful character!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
