Answer:  LET IT GO TO HIS HEAD

(Happy Halloween, everybody!  Sure, it’s a little early, but it Falls on a Thursday this year, so let’s have fun with it while we can.  This isn’t so much a stinky pun, as it is a pumpkin spiced pun.  I don’t mind the pumpkin spiced stuff, although folks do tend to go a little overboard.  I generally avoid it, and hold out for pumpkin pie!  I loves me some good pumpkin pie.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  However, all of the jumbles are coming up as new today.  I only had trouble getting “gyrate”.  The others I all saw right away.  Fortunately, I didn’t have to back into “gyrate”.  The answer letter layout was an impressive sixteen letter jumble.  It gave nothing away, but it didn’t take much to figure out the final answer.  This is such a familiar theme.  Almost a tradition.

Great period piece cartoon.  I can’t quite make out that blob in the corner, but it could be Washington Irving himself, I suppose.    Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.  Keep a sharp eye out for those trick or treaters while driving!  And, don’t be a stick in the mud.  Keep your lights on, answer the door, and have candy for the kids.)   —   YUR
