Answer:  HARD TO SWALLOW

(I’ve never really been able to appreciate the spectacle of these eating contests.  They’re essentially obscene displays of gluttony, and – no doubt – waste, as many of the participants end up tossing their . . . cookies.  I guess it’s just a perverse kind of fascination.  Kind of like watching a train wreck.  I personally could never do it.  I prefer to enjoy the art of savoring a meal, or even a snack.  Taking my time, and experiencing the flavor of the food.  I’d sooner run a marathon, before entering one of these eating contests.  And, you know that ain’t gonna happen!

Huzzah!  We appear to have a brand new clue word for the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  I had a funny feeling while unscrambling “thoyl” that “hotly” might be new . . . and it seems to be so.  Two other jumbles appear to be new, while we’ve definitely seen “wordsy” before.  The answer letter layout was a great thirteen letter jumble, but the whole setup just made getting today’s final answer a breeze, for me.

Great cartoon of teen boys at the sea, or lake, shore.  I can’t make out what is on the boy’s cap, but I like the foot long vendor cart!  And, just to the right of the vendor cart’s umbrella, you can see a tiny, classic sinking sailboat!  A fine Saturday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Google insists on making hotdog two words, but surprisingly WordPress accepts it!  This might be the first time I’ve agreed with WordPress!      YUR

    It is a shame that, to me the Best in the World,
    Nathan’s Hotdogs, sponsores a eating (??) contest on Coney Island – stick to the beach, rides & boardwalk, if you are there during this rather crude/gross event. Maybe if they built a Pig-Sty for the contestants{pigs} it would be more apropos! To call this a classy and great event is rather “HARD TO SWALLOW”….

    I really enjoyed this fun Jumble for memories
    it brought back to me about my time living in
    East New York Brooklyn, 3 1/2 yrs. A little funny: After I made it three years, the boys on the corner said; Now I am a half-ass New Yorker* But no matter how long I live there, I will never be a True Blood, “the City” guy●
    “Forgit bout’ It”!!**

    Be Blessed^

    I can’t eat a footlong in two bites. But I can eat two foot longs in however many minutes I prefer. I’m not into speed anymore. I’m of the marathon variety, no sprinting!

    Yeah, Ken. I went through the same thing when I lived in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and then Jersey City. For a total of 6 years, I was always the guy from Western NY. When you’re not born in some areas they always consider you an outsider, no matter how long you live there. Now I’m 33 years in Rockland County, just 30 miles outside of NYC, and I occasionally run into someone who treats me like an outsider. And my brother, who’s lived, and worked, in Florida for 30+ years is always going to be a “Damn Yankee”. You’re just a “Yankee” if you’re just visiting/passing through, but you’re a “Damn Yankee” if you set down roots there. LOL! — YUR 🙂
