Answer: BOARD STIFF

(A great stinky pun!  With some other words, and some other letters the answer also could have been BOARD SILLY, BOARD TO DEATH, or BOARD TO TEARS.  The pun comes from the bored play, and not necessarily the descriptive portion.

None of today’s clue words came up as new.  Although three of the jumbles did.  We have definitely seen “snafet” sometime in the past.  The answer letter layout was a cryptic ten letter jumble.  I did not pick up on the quotation marks right away, so this wasn’t an immediate solve for me today, so the answer letter layout did a good job of hiding the answer . . . from me.

Fine cartoon from our guest cartoonist, Lincoln Peirce.  My newspaper does not carry “BIG NATE”, but strips with kids as the main characters are usually pretty funny.  It was giving me kind of a “Nancy and Sluggo” vibe.  That’s an oldie that I haven’t seen in a while.  Although, I think it is still running in some newspapers.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
