(I guess this is a doubly stinky pun, as it’s a double entendré . . . sorta.  There’s nothing risqué about either meaning.  Just that by producing more money the workers are earning more money.  Double meaning using the same words.  I can remember – way back – when I was a wage earner, as opposed to a salaried employee.  Time and a half was sweet!  Ah, the good old days!

Great old clue words today!  It’s been a while since we’ve seen some of them.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “ngrop” before.  The answer letter layout was a thrilling thirteen letter jumble, but the final answer came to me immediately.  Probably because of the layout of the final answer slots.

Fine cartoon of employees working at a U.S. Mint.  Can’t tell which one though.  I know there are mints in West Point, Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco, but there could be others I suppose.  I like the hairnets and goggles.  I’m guessing that the commemorative coins they’re pressing are quarters, but who knows!?  Very fine Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
