Image result for the path not taken

Answer:  SLOWPOKE

(Wow!  Not easy for yer dear old uncle.  It took a while for me to come up with the final answer, because I didn’t even realize that “slowpoke” was a compound word!  I would have spelled it out as two words.  I still want to know what body comes up with these kind of designations.  No new clue words, today.  Hey ralis95!  Check your email for Sunday’s Jumble.  Three new jumbles, with “lapowl” having been used before.  The answer letter layout had me stumped for a while.  Great cartoon, too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I might miss a few days spoilers, as my mom just passed.  We’ll see how things go.     YUR

Answer:  PACHYDERMATOLOGIST

(Possibly, THE longest single word answer in the history of The Jumble!!!  But . . . what the heck do I know?  I’m just a guy who posts the spoilers.  We appear to have a new clue word today, in “zipper”.  I hope our dear friend, ralis95, is reading his emails this evening!  The only old jumble is”nidsig”.  A few of these jumbles took more than a single look.  Nice job, Hoyt.  And, the answer letter layout was a supercalifragilisticexpealidosious – or something close to that – jumble!  Great cartoon, too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Mothers are a biological necessity; fathers are a social invention.”   —   Margaret Mead

Guilt is the price we pay willingly for doing what we are going to do anyway.”   —   Isabelle Holland

Image result for jewelry = love

Answer:  EITHER ORE

(I like this stinky pun!  I was always into rocks and minerals, as a kid.  And, I almost got into Geology when I was in college.  But, I went a different way, and now I post puzzle spoilers!  We have another new clue word today, in “wicker”.  Our long time pal, ralis95, will have to – once more – update his world famous database.  Two of the remaining jumbles were new, with “fridta” having definitely been used before.  I thought today’s answer letter layout was inspired!  I’m sure it was the quotation marks that locked down the answer for most of you.  They did for me.  Fine cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The Contemporary Mystery of Uranus

Perfect example is the VP over at CBS, who said she didn’t feel all that bad about the Las Vegas shooting because most country music fans are republican! And, she was dumb enough to say this on Facebook! I kinda doubt that Steven Paddock was an ultra-anti-country music critic anyway. The woman at CBS had allowed her politics to overtake her empathy. — YUR

It Just Popped Into My Head

I find it hard to fathom

the stupid shit that comes

out of people’s mouths

on almost frequent occasions,

like their brain

doesn’t connect to their mouth

and anyone with even a simple

sense of logic

or common sense

would throw up the big stop sign

to their jaw

before spewing some of the dumbest,

least empathetic words

I’ve heard

in this lifetime.

If only we still

believed in Santa,

who could install

some kind of tripwire

from our reckless thoughts

to our vocal cords.

It’s OZ

and the scarecrows are everywhere:

they’ve mated with the Tin Woodsmen

to create a hybrid species

of thoughtless, heartless zombies

whose sole purpose

is to get to the wizard,

regardless of who is puddled

in their path.

And of course,

I’m only speaking of adults,

who should honestly

behave much better,

tsk tsk tsk.

The children I work with

are the most earnest
