(Another toughie.  Maybe the guys are taking a page from the Will Shortz playbook, and making the jumbles harder as the week goes on.  If that’s the case, maybe I can semi-retire and only post the spoilers for later in the week!  You guys don’t really need to come here for the easy ones anyway.  We shall see.

No new clue words today, and only the jumbles for “length” and “ironic” are coming up as new, for me.  For some reason the one for “after” always kind of gets me.  I keep seeing FRATE, as if FREIGHT could be spelled that way.  Sure, I know better, but . . .  The answer letter layout was a jumble masterpiece!  It definitely did not give the answer away.  I had to think a bit to solve this.  The cartoon is great.  I love the clown, the acrobat, the ringmaster, and the human cannonball!  Good stuff.  I hate all the political correctness surrounding circuses these days!  It’s like those wiseguys who always have to point out that Puff, The Magic Dragon is – debatably – about smoking pot.  Can’t it just be a sweet song about a young child’s imagination, and the inevitable loss of innocence ?  I don’t like it when people going screwing around with my childhood memories.  Just enjoy the simple pleasures, and shut the fudge up!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
