Answer:  THEIR MARRY WAY

(Now this is a great stinky pun!  One that truly exemplifies a Jumble pun.  It seems like the only times we use the word merry these days is when we wish someone Merry Christmas, or when we’re talking about “The Merry Wives of Windsor”.  And, the latter is mostly reserved for the hardcore Shakespearean fans and actors.  And of course going on one’s merry way!

All of today’s clue words are cheery members of the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve undoubtedly seen “gemao” in earlier Jumbles, as it’s coming up in my Tags.  They were all good jumbles, but I saw all the clue words straight away.  The answer letter layout was a tremendous thirteen letter jumble.  Joyfully cryptic.

Great cartoon of the happy couple exiting their reception.  The stressful event is over, and now it’s time for a little rest and relaxation.  A tropical beach, and some mai tais, or some other rum drinks with a little umbrella and some fruit, are a great way to unwind!  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When it comes to dealing cards in poker, the playing cards are shuffled – – –

Answer:  BEFOREHAND

(Not the strongest of Jumble puns, but it was okay, I guess.  I get it, but . . . meh.  The cartoon is the best part of it, as the four characters – not Jeff – seem to be pretty specific . . . to him.  I guess one of them is an actual magician.  Not sure what the guy in the dinosaur costume is about.  Jeff really doesn’t trust the guy who is about to deal.  And, the other guy seems to be mocking Jeff.  If this is supposed to be a “friendly card game” then maybe he should get some better friends.

We’ve seen all of these clue words before-hand.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  But we’ve definitely seen “kvoee” some time in previous Jumbles.  None of them gave me any trouble.  The answer letter layout was a tidy ten letter jumble.  Crisply cryptic.

We’ve already talked about the cartoon.  But I failed to mention the little dog!  I’m just guessing that it’s one of Jeff’s.  I guess card games lend themselves to a lot of pun-worthy phases.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Hocus Pocus | Disney Movies

When witches go riding, and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers. ‘Tis near Halloween!”   —   Unknown

(Maybe this was said by one of those “Hocus Pocus” witches!  That’s one of my daughter’s favorite movies.  Cute movie.  I don’t think the recent sequel could have been as good.  Our Cryptoquote friends really seem to be into the holiday spirit!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (TV Movie 1966) - IMDb

I don’t see how a pumpkin patch could be more sincere than this one.”   —   “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”

(A childhood favorite of mine!  I’m pretty sure this was one of Linus’ lines.  He was a very sincere little boy.  And, other than Charlie Brown’s sister, Sally, no one bought into Linus’ story of The Great Pumpkin.  I haven’t watched it in years though.  I don’t remember the point of Linus’ blind faith, as the Great Pumpkin never came.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
