When a politician says, ‘I have nothing to hide’, he has already hidden everything.”   —   David Frost

(I think most of us have a few skeletons in the closet.  Those who don’t probably led very uninteresting lives.  I could have sworn that we’d seen a David Frost quote in the past, but the Tag I just set up says otherwise.  Maybe I just forgot?  To be on the safe side, we welcome David Frost to the Cryptoquote Club!  And, I so wanted to celebrate Morena Baccarin’s birthday today!  I’m gonna do it anyway!  Happy Birthday, Morena!  So lovely!  And, a fellow Gemini.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  TABLE OF CONTENTS

(Ah!  A literal/figurative pun.  For me, today’s final answer was much easier than some of the jumbles.  The last time I saw a buffet like this was at a gallery exhibition where my stepson was showing some works.  It was a little fancier actually.  This one looks a little more like an office party.

We actually have another new clue word toady, in “unroll”.  Señor ralis95 will once again have to update his world famous clue word database!  Five of the six jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve seen “taxfie” sometime before.  It took a couple of looks for me to get “suburb” from “sruubb”.  But, I nearly had to back into “catnip”, as “cpaint” had me stymied for a while.  I wanted the N to be an M, so it could be impact.  Then I wanted an additional A, so I could make it captain.  Good jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a fine fifteen letter jumble.  It was far from obvious, as the cartoon and the clue/question set up the final answer exceptionally well, for me.

Fine cartoon of a conference lunch buffet.  It looks like they have a nice variety of delectable goodies.  I thought the lady reading the contents from the side of the jar was a bit unnecessary.  But, the guys seem to think we absolutely need a bonus clue for some of these.  Oh, well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
