Answer:  STRIKE A POSE

(A marvelous stinky pun!  You can just hear all the snooty, linguistic blue-noses groaning, all over the world.  Groan on, killjoys!  Jumblers love their puns!

It looks like Hoyt spared us any new words, as they are already on the ralis95 world famous clue word database.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be new!  I was able to get them all immediately though.  The answer letter layout was a nifty eleven letter jumble.  Not obvious, at all.  The leading nature of the the clue/question set up the final answer, for me.

Fantastic drawing of upset, protesting cartoonists!  Our pal, Jeff Knurek is front and center, with his MAKE THE JUMBLE BIGGER sign.  Flanked by Hilary Price, of “Rhymes With Orange”, and Stephan Pastis, of “Pearls Before Swine”.  They even got Cathy Guisewite out of retirement for the protest!  I don’t see Jim Davis, but someone is holding a “Garfield” sign.  And, this must be in Metropolis, as they’re outside The Daily Planet.  Could the reporter be none other than Clark Kent???  Jeff is living the dream in this one!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR, I just checked out ‘Rhymes with Orange’- I love it! It’s right up my funny bone’s alley! Is it in your daily newspaper, or do you get a daily RWO email?

    Fortunately, it is in my local paper, jenn! She is just so literate and clever! — YUR

    Wish I could have made out the detail in my paper. Trying to blow it up makes it blurry! We no longer have Rhymes with Orange in our paper, always enjoyed it!

    Hey Jenn!

    All y’all stay healthy! LL
