Answer:  SHELL SHOCKED

(Lobster shells.  Ya get it?  Of course you do.  No new clue words, but they were all jumbled expertly.  And, the answer letter layout was a work of art.  It gave absolutely nothing away.  I can see it taking a while to solve this one.  Of course, the kid playing with the claws, and the empty shells on the mother’s plate were a great clue, too.  Excellent cartoon, Mr. Knurek!  If any of you missed ralis95’s comment a few days ago, I visited with the clue word database master, this past Friday, while I was visiting southern California with the missus.  He prepared a marvelous brunch for us, and we spent the better part of the day just chewing the fat and having a grand ol’ time.  He mentioned something about a jumble solving contest, but between you and me . . . I think he let me win.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
