Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (7-letters)  (3-letters)  “(6-letters)”

Answer:  LEARNED HIS LESSEN

(Another great stinky pun.  This one featuring my guilty pleasure/Achilles heel; BBQ potato chips.  My preferred brand is Wise.  They’ve definitely got more of a zing to them.  Lays are WAY TOO sweet!  I will eat Utz, or Herr’s too, but Wise are the best!  For me, they are the gold standard.  People in other parts of the country may not be aware of these brands, other than Lays.  But, those are the dominant ones in the Northeast.  Of course, with my accelerated diabetes, I have to watch my intake.  But, I manage to mix in a modicum of daily junk food, with my generally healthier diet.

No new clue words today!  However, all of today’s jumbles are coming up as new.  None of them tripped me up though.  The answer letter layout was a very impressive sixteen letter jumble.  It disguised the final answer very nicely.  I had to take it from:  Well, the middle word is most likely HIS, and the first word has to end in ED.  From crossing out those letters I learned my lessen.

Nice cartoon of a couple of buddies sitting on a couch, most likely watching a game.  It’s either Russian ping-pong, or Taiwanese baseball, played in front of cardboard cut-out fans, with cheerleaders making some noise.  I watched the simulated Triple Crown winners Kentucky Derby Challenge yesterday.  Seattle Slew led much of the way, but in the end Secretariat beat out Citation by half a length.  Seattle Slew was third, Affirmed was fourth, and American Pharoah was fifth.  Great to see such a strong showing from the three from the ’70s.  Not like live sports, but still entertaining.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    We had a LESSEN pun in the context of math just a little over a month ago, March 28th. “When the teacher taught subtraction to the students, it was a LESSEN LESSON”

    If you like barbecue potato chips, see if one of your local stores sell Zapp’s “New Orleans Style”.

    I used to like barbeque chips in my youth, but my taste buds seem to have mellowed in my advancing years. I’m satisfied now with just plain chips.

    Would that be the Voodoo ones? Occasionally, I’m in the mood for kettle chips. But, I prefer regular chips. Miss Vickie’s makes good kettle chips, but they’re – now? – a subsidiary of Lays. It’s funny how the four major East coast brands (Wise, Utz, Herr’s and Snyder’s) are all out of Pennsylvania. — YUR

    Yes, Voodoo is just one of Zapp’s flavors. There’re many others. In past years I would’ve enjoyed all of them, but my taste buds have moved on for now.

    I haven’t seen or heard of Miss Vickie’s down here. I think it’s a Canadian brand. Y’all must get that up there near the border. I’m sure they’re wonderful !

    The website only showed three flavors, lwc. Voodoo looked like the one that might be barbecue to me.

    Miss Vickie’s are kettle chips with some very intense flavors. The younger you probably would have enjoyed them! —YUR

    “The younger me.”

    Those were good days; but, time moves on and we have to move on with it and like it !

    Changed his weighs would have been a
    better solution.

    Thanks, Steve! — YUR
