I have a wonderful make-up crew.  They’re the same people restoring the Statue of Liberty.”   —   Bob Hope

(Even though he was born in London, England . . . who was more American than Bob Hope?!?!  He made 57 tours for the USO, entertaining American troops, over the years.  His family came through Ellis Island when he was 5 years old.  He hosted the Oscars 19 times!  He starred in numerous movies and television specials.  And he was invited to the White House on numerous occasions.  He lived a few months past his 100th birthday!  A great American.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(A good stinker of a pun, to help celebrate our country’s 243rd birthday.  You can almost smell the sulfur and the black powder!  Let’s hope that these guys are competent . . . and sober.  There are too many stories of people getting hurt on the 4th of July, and any day where amateur fireworks are shot off.

Froyt . . . er, I mean Hoyt is sparing us from new clue words today.  He doesn’t want to bother ralis95 on a national holiday!  Two of the jumbles are new, while we’ve seen both “sokki” and “leesaw” some time before.  Yeah, and “forty” spells out in alphabetical order.  Fine nine letter answer letter layout jumble.  It just couldn’t hide the elephant in the room.

Great cartoon of a couple of good intentioned jokers.  I can just see that fuse burning out, shorter and shorter, before getting to the drum.  And, the fuses almost never burn at consistent rate, anyway.  It’s usually best to leave these things to the professionals.  Have a Happy Independence Day, guys!  Be well, be good, and be safe, friends.)   —   YUR
