(Outstanding pun!  Of course some pun-haters are groaning, but you know they’re going to groan, no matter what.  So, the heck with them.  The groan inducing pun is the Jumble payoff.  It’s what we Jumble devotees live for.  N’est pas?

We seem to have another in-betweener today, in “whack”.  It is not part of the ralis95 clue word database of 02/23/19, so we either saw it since that time, or it came up on some Sunday, before I came up with my code for notifying the master!  Both “cahwk” and “miger” are coming up as jumbles that have definitely been used before.  The other two appear to be new.  The answer letter layout made for another impressive fourteen letter jumble.  It gave nothing away.  And, it took me a few looks to figure out the answer.  MAGIC being the key word, naturally.

Jeff’s depiction of both Penn and Teller was spot on!  Not to mention a pretty passable Jeff, and Kathy Kent-Knurek!  I’m not really the biggest fan of magic acts, but Penn & Teller are just in a class all their own.  It’s so much more than a “magic” act.  It’s a more intelligent, well-rounded entertaining show.  They are one of Las Vegas’ All-Time great acts.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    This may be a little off the bow, but here goes;

    The Scrambled Word, CICADA, had my mind spinning, for I knew either I had heard or read about this word somewhere but no matter how hard I tried too recall it I was lost in a neuronic maze!
    {To the younger Puzzlers out there; As you age
    gracefully this sort of issue will probably happen more frequently?^}

    After I looked it up (shame) it came to me:
    In ninth grade Biology we studied these flying
    creatures, something about their almost transparent wings.
    This may sound silly but this gave me great joy. I don’t blame some of.you now thinking like, “Man this guy needs a life…..”

    Back to reality; This was a terrific Jumble☆☆☆…Old style joke: “That’s why there are 5,000 magic acts put together and
    only 100 of them working now”{{Not really that funny,,Maybe true??

    Be Blessed!

    Coincidentally, “Teller’s comedy partner” turned up as a clue in Tuesday’s L.A. Times crossword. It’s like magic …
