The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.”   —   Osho

(Of course, this is assuming we’re talking about the mother’s first child.  A pre-Mother’s Day quotation?  This dude was also known as Rajneesh.  An interesting/controversial character.  Part philosopher, part cultist.  Despite looking pretty ancient, he was only 58 years old when he passed away.  We welcome Osho to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer: HOPPY COUPLE

(Oh, yeah.  That’s definitely a stinker.  It’s the kind of pun that makes most people groan.  WordPress does not even recognize “hoppy” as a real word.  Merriam Webster’s does, but only in the context of certain beers and ales.  And, you guys know me . . . easy on the hops!

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “turfho” being the only jumble we’ve definitely seen before.  The answer letter layout was a wonderful eleven letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  The clue/question and the great cartoon set up the answer very nicely.

I love the cartoon!  It’s kind of has a Beatrix Potter meets Warner Bros. meets J.R.R. Tolkien feel to it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
