Answer:  IMPOSING

(Can I get a rim-shot?  That is definitely a very stinky pun.  But that’s what Jumbles are all about!  Making some people groan, while making the rest of us – fans – chuckle.  Not as imaginative and cute as yesterday’s Jumble, but it met the requirements of our daily fix.

All of today’s clue words are presently members of the ralis95 clue word database.  Surprisingly, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I especially enjoyed “pytis” and “ngiogn”.  The answer letter layout was a sedate eight letter jumble.  Sufficiently cryptic.

Fine cartoon of a fashion shoot.  Models, a little pedestal, and studio lights.  To take away the – stereotypical – creepiness they made the photographer a woman.  Hey!  A woman can sexually harass other women just as easily as a man can!  Well, technically at least.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
