Answer:  MISSTEPS

(What a great Jumble pun!  I really like this one.  It works out to be one of those literal/figurative puns.  Here’s one carpenter’s apprentice who probably won’t be brought on for the next job!

Our good friends ralis95 can relax today.  There were no new clue words.  Three of the four jumbles appear to be new, with only “ghist” having definitely been used before.  I had a little difficulty coming up with “tipsy”!  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble.  The cartoon, its dialog, and the clue/question were what led me to the final answer.

Love the cartoon too.  At least two of the steps are WAY off, the bottom and the top ones.  But, I wouldn’t be surprised if a few more weren’t seven-and-a-half inches high.  A low bottom step can be managed, but that top step looks like a killer.  An overall satisfying Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
