(A spectacular stinky pun!  Mom is amazed, junior is jazzed, and dad is depressed . . . and in shock.  Getting stranded like this is a hassle, but you’ve got to just make the best of a bad situation.  Help yourself to some towels, or something.

Hoyt has created some work for our good friend ralis95!  The word “runny” does not appear on the latest version of his world famous clue word database.  It’s always the simplest words that throw me for a loop.  I had no inkling that this was going to come up as a new word.  All four of the jumbles are coming up as new.  I saw all the words right away.  The answer letter layout was an interesting ten letter jumble.  The answer did not hit me right away.  I checked off NHGIT as THING!  But/and that left me with NDSEP.  Right away I saw SPEND, but neither THING THE SPEND, nor SPEND THE THING made any sense.  But, of course, SPEND THE NIGHT did!  I never stopped to think that THING and NIGHT used the same letters.  LOL!

Great cartoon of a ritzy hotel room.  It’s a little hard to tell what city this is, but ya gotta love the view of the bay, or sea, or ocean.  Could even be a Great Lake, I suppose.  But, I enjoyed the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon!  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I got RUNNY off the bat but definitely needed extra time for the very good final answer complete with an -ING rabbit hole to run down and get stuck in. Fooled us! Fooled me anyway.

    What happened to this family also happened to me about 30 years ago, the last time I ever left in the morning without a reservation for the evening… in this case to the Buffalo area! Not having a standing invite to the Chez Unclerave at that time, I stopped at and called place after place heading east from the city, and everything was booked solid due to a convention event. Finally called a Best Western or something 20 miles out and was told they had “one room left” and the rate was some outrageous sum. I said I’d take it. But unlike the cartoon, this was no fancy suite, just a very basic room. Like the cartoon, it was pure supply and demand pricing.

    But the rate I had agreed to exceeded the maximum rate the motor inn quoted on the card on the back of the door, which is a violation of NY state law. So I was able to force a partial refund at the front desk to the maximum rate on the card. Still felt like a moral victory. Still got screwed. My own fault.
