Clue/Question:  What would Royboy do if his nose went on strike?

Soup To Nutz

Answer:  PICKET

(Fourth grade humor.  Maybe fifth.  Booger humor was right up there with fart humor.  At least with boys it was.  Girls would always say:  Ew, gross!  Boys are so disgusting!  And of course, this just amused the boys to no end.  They delighted in grossing out the girls.  I guess some things never really change.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but Hoyt has used “plaah” in earlier Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a slight six letter jumble.  It was scrambled nicely, but it didn’t take a booger brain surgeon to figure out the final answer.

Cute cartoon of the two boys.  I’m not familiar with “Soup To Nutz”, as my newspaper does not carry it.  Congrats to Rik Stromoski on the guesting gig!  Well, day two is in the books.  I can hardly wait to see what we’re going to get on day three!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  Hoping to get away from her homework, Luann reached for – – –

All Luann Comic Strips - GoComics

Answer:  THE ESCAPE KEY

(So, I guess the Sunday Jumble was setting up the Guest Jumblers week!  Great.  I always enjoy the guest Jumblers.  And, Luann happens to be one of my favorite comics.  I’ve been reading it since it was more crudely drawn, and Luann was just a kid with a big crush on Aaron Hill, and her brother Brad was just a big doofus.  She’s almost like a daughter to me.

There were no new clue words this day.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  However, we have definitely seen “esege” in previous Jumbles.  No real stumpers though.  The answer letter layout was a twisty twelve letter jumble.  It did an admirable job disguising the final answer.

That’s Luann alright!  She’s in college now, and her parents run a nice restaurant.  They’ve added a good number of characters over the past few years.  They give Luann more story lines.  I never knew that Greg Evans did the comic strip with who I’m guessing would be his wife, Karen!  They should put her name on the byline!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

2000 33c Legends of Baseball: Satchel Paige for sale at Mystic Stamp Company

Don’t pray when it rains if you don’t pray when the sun shines.”   —   Satchel Paige

(I’ve never been a praying man.  I did *say my prayers* as a young boy, but when I had the Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, and God discussion with my Mom, at age 7, I stopped.  But I can dig where Satchel is coming from.  If you’re going to pray just don’t do it when it’s something that you want.  That’s just being selfish.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
