Answer:  WORD OF MOUTH

(Not a pad bun . . . er, bad pun.  All the tried and true clue words were jumbled nicely, and newly, today.  The answer letter layout is a thing of beauty.  If you weren’t able to pick up on the gag, from the cartoon and the clue/question, you might have had some difficulty in solving this, from the answer letter layout alone.  Fortunately, I am an idiom savant!  The cartoon was fun.  I always like it when Jeff puts his partner, David, in it.  And, by partner I don’t mean “partner”.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that!  I just meant the guy he does the Jumble with.  I guess Jeff is also featuring a friend named Matt, who happens to be a dentist.  Which reminds me, I think I have to call my endodontist soon.  I’ve got another tooth/crown that’s sensitive to cold.  At least I’ll get to see Doris again.  Hey!  For that guy out there who once questioned my *sensitivity*, I’ll have you know that I am extra sensitive.  Last month they told me that normally a root canal consists of deadening the three nerves of the tooth.  But, my tooth had FIVE nerves!  So, there.  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
