Answer:  SURE WOULD

(Now, this is a traditional groaner of a pun!  But, it’s pretty clever.  I hadn’t heard this one before.  Did David L. Hoyt come up with it on his own, or was it suggested by a Jumble fan???  Hmm!  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  I struggled for a few seconds with “buryg”, but I think I’ve struggled to get “rugby” before.  I think today’s answer letter layout was a wonderfully cryptic jumble.  I don’t think it gave away a thing.  Jeff Knurek’s cartoon was very amusing, if not a tad awkward.  It kind of looks like they’re looking out to an island, instead of a forest.  But, I liked the drawings of Robin, Little John and Friar Tuck . . . and the critters.  Three of Sherwood’s finest scoundrels!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
