Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (5-letters)  (3-letters)  (7-letters)

Answer:  STEAL HIS THUNDER

(Another terrific pun!  For a second or two I thought this was going to be a tough solve.  But, the answer hit me like a bolt of lightning!  There were no new clue words today, but five of the six jumbles came up as new.  Hoytie has used “hoyter” before!  Only “agetoe” and “ludfon” gave me a slight pause.  The others were instant for me.  The answer letter layout was a brilliant jumble.  It definitely didn’t give anything away.  I think it was the combination of the clue/question, the great cartoon, and its dialog that made the answer fairly obvious to me.  The new guy is very dapper, in his carefully coiffed do and beard, and his expensive sharp suit.  While the veteran dons the classic loud plaid sports coat, and a not so convincing toupee.  Lots of fun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
