Answer:  BOOHOO

(Something dark and easy to start the work week.  We do have a new clue word, in “hobnob”.  We need to alert ralis95, so he can update his world famous clue word database!  It was the only word to give me any trouble.  I suspected it, but confirmed it by backing into it.  The answer letter layout wasn’t all that cryptic.  And, with the cartoon’s dialog, the answer was pretty self-evident.  But, the cartoon was cute.  It’s not often that The Jumble deals with actual death.  There are ones with un-dead zombies, and ghosts after the fact, but I can’t remember one where a person, or creature, was depicted as expired.  They always say there’s a first for everything!  Does anyone out there remember when The Jumble displayed a death?  Oh well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
