(It is an engineering marvel!  And today it is probably China’s greatest tourist attraction.  But I hear they also have some really inspiring gorges.  I hear they’re . . . gorgeous!  And there is The Forbidden City & Imperial Palace in Beijing.  The Terracotta Army.  And that place where they raise all those Giant Pandas!  China is a big country, with plenty to see.  If Jeff Knurek hasn’t been there yet, I’m sure that it is on his bucket list.  I know I’d love to visit.

All of today’s clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new though.  We have definitely seen “giwhe” at least once before.  All the clue words came to me pretty quickly.  The answer letter layout was another terrific twelve letter jumble.  It is a magnificent structure . . . much like the Great Wall.  Decently cryptic too.

The cartoon seems to be of a college history class.  The professor is standing at his lectern, pointing to the map of China.  The one student is getting away with a stinky pun of his own!  A doubly funny Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    China’s Yao Ming was 7’6’’ and weight 310 pounds when he played in the NBA for the Houston Rockets. His career was cut short due to injury, but when he played he was fun to watch. 🥢 Also seemed like a good guy, and easy to root for (unless playing against the Celtics ☘️). Fun fact: Yao weighed 11 pounds at birth. YAOWWWW is right!

    Speaking of painful experiences, the babies over there 👉 whined 14 times y’day with their Doula contracting a disappointing six times 🙋🏻‍♀️. She didn’t push quite hard enough 👶.

    Word from Cohasset is that poor Ana was dismembered and incinerated by her husband Brian, and there is no hope of recovering her remains. Very disturbing details indeed. 🔪 🔥 Hope everyone has a sparkling Friday!

    Smitty- We have lots of Jumble fan sites. David and I like most of them. It’s great to see fans discuss our puzzle. What’s not nice are “fans” like you. I have no idea what your misplaced loyalty is trying to achieve. Stop it! It’s childish and ridiculous. The Jumble fandom has no place for trolls like you.

    You are entitled to your opinion, Jeff. (You could chill on the name calling though.) — YUR
