Answer:  A LA CART

(Trés bon!  Do they have hotdogs en France???  Would they admit to it if they did?  You know how they are all about haute cuisine!  Also, they may still have a bug up their butts about Germanic food.  A lot of people are kind of down on the lowly hotdog.  They’re kind of the low-man on the sausage totem pole.  Lips and as……, as some say.  But, just generally, we don’t want to know how the sausage is made.  Or, at least that’s the expression.  I’m down with the dogs!  I just don’t think about what goes into them, while I’m eating them.  Life is too short for that.  Just eat them in moderation, like most things.  Bon appétit, mes amis!

Hoyt snuck in a new clue word today!  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database for “gotcha”.  It sounds like slang to me, but it’s in the Merriam Webster’s and the Cambridge dictionaries.  All of today’s jumbles are coming up as new.  None were too tough.  The answer letter layout was a brief seven letter jumble.  This might have been a little difficult for some.

    Oui, oui, UR, but they might just call it “une saucisse”! I figured GOTCHA was a new word. I almost got COAGHT (caught) on it …

    Your comment “about how sausage is made” reminded me of a saying I heard many years ago and was just thinking about recently “Two things you should never see being made are sausage and laws.”. Google search shows it is often attributed to Otto von Bismarck but the first known reference of “sausage and laws” was by John Godfrey Saxe. In both cases there were variations of the way I always knew it. Still awake?

    Okay, Ken. I got the “COARSE” part, and the Stay Blessed. But, what is all that middle stuff about, brother? — YUR

    I was attempting some “of the wall” humor*
    Many times you are an inspiration to me to give some witty answers …so I made you my Agent
    & instead of the classic 10% I would give you a 1% boast!

    Sometimes I try to give different/weird comments but, as is obvious, I mess it up
    on occasion >>>>

    In the future I’ ll try to tone it down some!!

    Hey! Got caught up on 2/5 and headed to a conference the next day, so I’m catching up again!

    I came up with COAGHT too, but only because it was one of the words I wrote down trying to unjumble the word. I finally saw GOTCHA, however, my handy dandy Spelling Ace did not recognize it as a word. So, after awhile of unsuccessfully trying to figure out what the word was, I had the husb check our Unc’s blog. I was right and the Ace was inaccurate! GOTCHA…. love it.

    I do love a good hot dog all the way! LL

    Hey there, lady! So nice to hear from you. I still kinda think of GOTCHA as more of an acceptable slang word, rather than a legitimate word. Like KINDA and GOTTA. They’re slangy contractions that have made it into the vernacular . . . and the dictionaries. The purist, stickler side of me doesn’t approve of them being treated as actual, legitimate words. But, the easy going, regular, lovable uncle side of me uses them all the time. I think many languages have these acceptable contractions.

    I could use a good hotdog! It has been a while. — YUR
