(One of the funniest men of all time!  I’m not sure if he would make it in 2019, as his humor would probably be labeled as “misogynistic”.  How would Winnie the Pooh put it???  “Oh, bother.”  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BETTER BETTOR

(ER versus OR, but unless you stress the OR the words sound exactly the same.  It’s a familiar homophonic pun.  But, I don’t think we’ve seen it here for quite a while.  My wife’s ex-brother-in-law is a big casino gamble.  I don’t know what his game is, and actually I don’t care.  But, allegedly, when his wife opened the trunk of his car one time it was full of cash.  Guys like that may win big very often, but they also lose big.  If I’m in need of that kind of adrenaline rush I’ll just jump out of an airplane again.

Our friend ralis95 can rest easy today, as there are no new clue words in this puzzle.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “boyhb” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a fine twelve letter jumble.  The totality of the Jumble made getting the final answer pretty easy.

Great cartoon of a casino poker table.  A nice dealer lady and three losers.  The guy to Jeff’s left doesn’t look like he’s old enough to be in a casino.  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
