Balloon Animals — The Big Blue Trunk

Answer:  INFLATED EGOS

(Lego my ego!  Snooty balloons???  Why, I never . . .  Sometimes the guys have to go for the low hanging fruit, I guess.  LOL!  This is definitely one of the stinkier Jumble puns in quite a while.  But I bet it made some of you think.  And, that’s the good thing about these puzzles – The Jumble, Cryptoquote, Crossword, and Sudoku, etc. – they all help to sharpen the mind.

All of today’s clue words have been used in previous Jumbles.  Three of the scrambled letter groupings are coming up as new.  However, we’ve definitely seen “tflieu” sometime before.  The answer letter layout was a twisty twelve letter jumble.  I thought that it was beautifully cryptic.  Good job, Hoyt!

Fun cartoon of a clown making balloon animals for kids in the park.  Probably a Saturday.  Possibly the Fourth of July?  I like how Knurek added his terrestrial version of the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon, aka the clock tower.  It hasn’t quite reached classic status yet, but it’s getting there.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The least movement is of importance to all nature.  The entire ocean is affected by a pebble.”   —   Blaise Pascal

(A positive affirmation if I’ve ever heard one!  I’m not 100% sure that I completely buy into it, but it’s a very nice sentiment regardless.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy birthday to Cait O’Riordan, formerly of The Pogues and Elvis Costello!  (This song/video always brings a tear to my eye.)
