Clue/Question:  Don Rickles had such funny put-downs and insults because it was his – – –

(“Mister Warmth”, himself!  A wonderful Jumble pun, that brought me back to the halcyon days of non-politically correct comedy!  Don Rickles was the king of insult/put-down comedy.  He’d make fun of someone in the audience, and – essentially – apologize for it, in pretty much the same breath, by saying:  I’m just kidding.  These are just jokes, folks.  And everyone – including the butt of the joke – got it . . . and laughed their ass off.  Nowadays, people are so – ridiculously – sensitive, thin-skinned, and easily offended.  And they demand an apology for a silly, harmless joke.  Or, they climb on stage and slap the “offender”, then threaten them with very vulgar language.  I still don’t get why so many people are more upset with that slap, and give his twice screamed threat a pass.  In a lot of ways the threats were more violent than the slap!

It is really looking like we have yet another new five letter Jumble clue word, in “eerie”!  This following the recent “local” and “whole”.  Something must have motivated David L. Hoyt!  Maybe he’s just trying to give ralis95 a little work.  We also seem to have three new jumbles, but we’ve definitely seen “ttpiee” in a previous Jumble.  I have an affinity for the word “burlap”.  It’s not used all that much these days.  Do they still make burlap bags?  The answer letter layout was a fairly elusive eleven letter jumble.  It took me a few seconds to come up with the final answer.

Great cartoon of what looks like Don Rickles from back in the 1960s, based upon the amount of hair on his head.  To be perfectly honest, before reading the clue/question I thought I was looking at that other great acerbic comic, Jack Carter.  He had a similar style to Rickles.  But besides being a hilarious comedian, Don Rickles was also a pretty decent actor.  He was in some really great movies, like “Run Silent, Run Deep”, “Kelly’s Heroes” and “Casino”.  If you ever need a good, tear inducing laugh just look up Don Rickles on YouTube.  Especially his appearances on Johnny Carson.  You will bust a gut laughing!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    KEEP MY WIFE’S NAME OUTCHA MOUFF! Damn, my cousin Will 👨🏾 really made an ass 🍑 out of himself that night. What a prick 🍆! I’m with you Unc, nobody can take a joke these days. I loved Don Rickles too. Very good with the jokes and roasts 🥩. One of the few I like today is Nikki Glasser. She can really sling the insults! Give her a look up. 👀 NSFW

    Speaking of insulting, the jokes over there 👉 threw 13 bombs 💣 y’day but only 5 from their Dangerfield 🙋🏻‍♀️. Day 4 of Covid for her. I’m glad she’s feeling much better today and will be out of quarantine t’morrow 🤥 Stay safe out there and wash your hands 🙌. Tks

    Sad times in Providence this week as head coach Ed Cooley 😎 defected to the enemy by signing with Georgetown 🤮. I liked him but now he’s public enemy #1 in Friartown. Even their top recruit de-committed! I guess money 💰 talks and bullshit 💩 walks.

    My bracket is busted 📄 🔥,

    I knew there was another clue word!!! EERIE … love it.

    You just don’t know what will offend these days. Seems like people can say anything they want to…unless it differs with how they think/feel. It all sucks! We get it all shoved down our throats and are supposed to be OK with it. I’m not! So, there’s that! :). LL

    I think the country/world could use a backlash to all this “sensitivity”. — YUR
