Clue/Question:  The husband-to-be who was dressed and ready for his wedding was – – –

Best Man Duties: Everything You Need to Know | Shutterfly

Answer:  WELLGROOMED

(A very dapper Jumble pun!  I don’t think the hyphen was necessary in this instance, as the words were not placed in front of the noun.  I’m the furthest thing from a grammarian, or any qualified linguist, but since it looked a little funny to me I looked it up.  And, that’s what I’m seeing.

None of today’s clue words – three legitimate and one made up – are new.  Two of the jumbles appear to be so, but we have seen “lyodl” and “ceeem” in earlier Jumbles.  The EMCEE said Hello DOLLY, and Paul sang I am the WALRUS.  And, when they were done they all GALLOPed  off the stage!  Maybe Ken can use the clue words differently.  The answer letter layout was an elegant eleven letter jumble.  Not sure if the hyphen actually helped me – LOL – but I was able to see the final answer right away!

For about a half second, I thought that Jeff might be being politically correct, and was giving us a gay wedding.  But then I just figured the one guy was either the best man, or a groomsman.  I wouldn’t be upset to see a Jumble featuring a same-sex wedding/marriage, but I’m not sure how it would play in Peoria!  And, fortunately, I don’t think The Jumble is published in Afghanistan, so . . .  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    From the link you just sent…”Does well-groomed have a hyphen”?

    “Yes, usually, if it is well-hyphenated, but it actually depends on sentence position and grammatical function. ..

    …The dog came home from the kennel well groomed.
    A well-groomed dog is usually a well-behaved dog”

    6 of one, half-dozen of the other? 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Nope. It all depends on the placement of the words in a sentence. “Well-groomed” isn’t always incorrect. Just in this instance/situation. It’s just a minor faux pas though. Nothing to lose sleep over. Take care, Ange! — YUR

    UR,

    Well, the EMCEE was in a tizzy as the WALRUS was brought on stage, much to his surprise, on a large DOLLY(hello?¿)…This led to his GALLOP to the “little boys” room, for it was time for “tinkle time”{hello Greek Freak) ..the “WELL-GROOMED” crowd of animal rights folks were taken aback for only a bit…a few minutes later the husky WALRUS showed his feelings by barfing twice on the stage, to the dismay of his new found friends…soo rude**…about a half-hour later things calmed down and a good time was had by all!!^…but the EMCEE could be heard shouting,” Where the hell is the toilet paper??¿” ♡…….k

    Latttter…….k

    PS Am I the only person on the Continental Divide to use the word “tizzy” in the last 10 years??¿{JUMBLE word, Nah, too easy}

    Oh My Word — or is it My-Word….I’m so confused now.

    I thought the same thing you did Unc — about the political correctness. Good jumble! LL
