Answer: CLIENTTELL

(A nice play on words.  It’s funny how the word clientele is used mostly by “escort services” and “gentlemen’s clubs” these days.  For other businesses it’s simply clients.  Yes, I probably watch too much “Law & Order SVU”.

Surprising as it may sound, it’s looking like “caulk” is a new clue word!  It looks like our good friend, ralis95, will have to add it to his world famous clue word database.  We’ve seen the jumble “milti” before, but the other three appear to be new.  I thought they were all fine jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a decent jumble, but I saw CLIENT right away in it.  I think switching both the five and six letter jumbles would have made it a little more challenging.  What do you think of CLLTENTLIE?  Nope!  Not much difference.  Never mind.

Nice lawyer’s office cartoon.  Business partners, or long term relationship/marriage partners?  That’s none of our business, really.  For the lawyer it’s all business.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Great setup and final answer. Unlike MOTHER LODE on Sunday, which was also well done but gave me a mess o’ trouble even though I saw MOTHER right away, I saw CLIENT in the letters and got the rest of this one immediately, but I think it’s also a very clever and original final answer from our puzzlers.

    Re: “clientele” being used more these days for escort services than non-sex businesses, I suppose DH and JK could have written the setup and drawn the cartoon to reference Robert Kraft on the massage table, but it probably wouldn’t have flown with many newspapers.

    I was surprised how “CAULK” jumped off the page at me! Maybe deep down something was telling me to finish some inside & outside jobs/business I need to get done this week??

    Many years ago I took one class in Bus. Law. It was one of the most fascinating courses taken by me.{I wish I still had that textbook*}
    Part of it involved reading a case history and picking the correct outcome out of three very
    very interesting solutions??

    My main point in bringing this up is that Lawyers use English Language but in the actual “Legal Speak”, in the aforementioned
    textbook, its almost like foreign language!!☆◇

    Be well with multiple good things@£♡
