Clue/Question:  The 9-to-5 coal miners worked – – –

Answer:  DAY IN AND DAY OUT

(I hope this was as automatic for you as it was to me!  It’s a good pun, but not necessarily a stinky pun.  A little grimy maybe.

None of today’s clue words are new.  Ralis954 gets a day off.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “cuyyk” having definitely been used before.  I guess “toddle” could have been tough for some.  It’s not really that common a word these days.  The answer letter layout was an impressive fourteen letter long jumble.  I thought it might be a tough solve until I read the cartoon and the clue/question.  The final answer spaces also made it a quick solve for me.

Fine cartoon of some grimy miners leaving the mine shaft.  Dangerous work, in so many ways.  Not a job that most people want their kids to get into.  But, I guess it paid well enough to raise the miners’ families.  We are finally moving away from coal, to cleaner energy alternatives, but it’s still a going concern.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Second major Daily Jumble Flash version failure with an unsolvable final answer in the past seven days, and *three* unsolvable final answers in the past week if you count the Sunday puzzle (not Flash or Uclick version, but as seen for example at the Seattle Times). The online grid for the final answer does not match the print puzzle:
    http://www.uclickgames.com/jumble/online/daily//tmjmf/2019/11/14

    The UClick solution for this grid is “D YIN AND DAY OUT.”. Somehow I failed to come up with that one.

    Is somebody on vacation, or has somebody quit or been fired? We’ve had a serious quality control issue this past week with the online versions of Jumble.

    And this may be on me, but I don’t even get the pun here with the correct answer in the print version anyway. Not that a pun is actually mandatory for Jumble, just traditional with David and Jeff.

    Thanks. Somebody went back and fixed the 11/07/2019 UCLICK puzzle in the last day or two (which is unusual when an online Flash puzzle is borked). The Sunday 11/10/2019 puzzle at the Seattle Times website and this 11/14/2019 puzzle have not been fixed yet.
