(If you were jonesing for a real stinky pun, today’s Jumble answer is the fix!  If you were ailing, this should put you on the mend.  David L and Jeff K are here to patch things up for us!  A very ful-filling stinky pun to start the work week. 

None of today’s clue words qualify as new.  However, three of the jumbles do appear to be new.  We have definitely seen “cilati” before.  And, as I had noted back then, it is merely “italic” written in reverse.  The answer letter layout was a twisty twelve letter jumble.  I thought it was pleasantly cryptic.  I think the clue/question and the final answer letter slots were the biggest clues, for me.

Great cartoon of a room that needs a good amount of attention.  The workmen seem to be well prepared to make the necessary repairs.  A fun Monday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I never heard the part about the Kaiser trying to induce Germany to attack us. That wasn’t taught us in high school. I need to look that up.

    Okay !
    I found this paragraph on Wikipedia:

    “The German Foreign Minister, in the Zimmermann Telegram, invited Mexico to join the war as Germany’s ally against the United States. In return, the Germans would finance Mexico’s war and help it recover the territories of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.”

    The unmitigated gall that they would try getting Mexico to declare war on us.
    That was the “bridge too far” !

    Wasn’t it a few decades ago the old Soviet Union tried inducing socialist-minded governments of Latin America into military alliances ?

    I’m a little surprised that Mexico didn’t take them up on the offer, lwc! Of course the U.S. had fairly recently kicked Spain’s butt, in a little under 4 months. And, the U.S. had only grown stronger since. And, Mexico was preoccupied with their own revolution at the time. So, I guess I under stand their taking a pass at Germany’s offer.

    I don’t know about the Soviet Union and Latin America, other than Cuba, lwc. The U.S. was always doing a pretty good job of propping up the banana republics down there. I suppose they could have tried to induce others, but I don’t remember anything like that. I know that the U.S. was doing everything they could to undermine Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. He was a reformer, and a “socialist”, who did many great things for Venezuela during the late ’90s up to 2013. The U.S. viewed him as a thorn in their side. (You know, that whole “socialism” thing) After Chavez died the country began to slide under the weaker rule of Nicolas Maduro, and the economic sanctions imposed by the U.S./West. Probably more the sanctions. But, that’s all I know about it.

    Yeah, David. I’ve had to repair a few holes that I’d punched in walls! (Not my finest moments.)
