Our country has plenty of good five-cent cigars, but the trouble is they charge fifteen cents for them.”   —   Will Rogers

(A little play on Vice President Thomas R. Marshall’s famous line:  “What this country needs is a really good five-cent cigar.”  But of course, Will Rogers had to one up him!  Well, Will was a professional humorist.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DAY OF WRECKONING

(This is a classic stinky pun!  Except, all those old classic cars were built like tanks, and I don’t think the son’s modern car would have done all that much damage.  But, they had to play things up for the pun to really work.

It looks like we have a new clue word today in “clunky”.  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to add this to his world famous clue word database.  All of today’s jumbles came up as new!  I thought that they were all fairly challenging, with the exception of “lloofw”.  The answer letter layout was a great fifteen letter jumble.  I thought it was very cryptic.  The leading nature of the clue/question helped me get DAY OF right away.  When I ticked off those letters I was able to see the pun, wreckoning!

Super cartoon!  Hard to tell which classic car this is, but it looks like it WAS cherry.  The poor dad looks like he wants to die.  The son must have been pulling out of the garage at a high rate of speed to do that much damage.  Fun Sunday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
