Visual Description:  Corn-gratulations!!!

ZORRA  =  RAZOR,  TIHAF  =  FAITH,  COREKT  =  ROCKET,  ROMMEY  =  MEMORY   —   Giving us:  RAOFATROEEMR

Clue/Question:  After realizing how much corn he had for sale, the farmer was grinning – – –

Answer:  FROM EAR TO EAR

(It would probably be just as corny, to mention how corny this pun is, so I won’t.  Especially not after that Vis/Desc.  I’ve only had corn on the cob once this season, so I better hurry up and have some more before it’s all gone!  This was a fun little solve.  None of the clue words were new, but three of the jumbles appear to be so.  We’ve definitely had “rommey” in the past.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble, but the leading nature of the clue/question made this one pretty much a no-brainer!  Usual top-notch cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  NOTHING TO IT

(Gotta love the American idioms!  They make for great puns.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “tisnis” in the past.  The answer letter layout was another expert jumble!  Nothing given away.  It looks like Jeff has inserted himself into a Family Circus cartoon.  He’s playing the part of Bil, the dad.  Thel is in the kitchen.  Jeffy is asking the question, and  Barfy is asleep at the foot of the bark-a-lounger!  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WICKED HEADACHE

(You’d almost think that bad things would be pleasurable to someone so malicious!  No?  Okay.  Very cute pun, anyway.  All of the clue words are old favorites, again.  Two of the jumbles came up as new, with “sacee” and “dulced” having definitely been used before.  A very impressive answer letter layout.  Both long and cryptic.  It was the cartoon though, that both took the prize, and made the answer pretty simple.  The bad witch is holding her head, and her dialog used the word “skull”, to avoid using the word that would be in the answer.  But, it’s a great Glinda and WWW, and a very cute flying monkey.  Why do so many people think the word “monkey” is so damn funny, anyway?  With the newest Planet of the Apes movie, that’s opening this weekend, all the television personalities think they are so clever calling it The Monkey Movie!  Of course, this isn’t the first time.  They seem to do it all the time.  Gorillas, Chimpanzees, Orangutans, and – to a lesser sense – Gibbons are all Apes.  Genetically, they are much closer to us than any monkey is.  Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t find mindful ignorance amusing.  Harrumph!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The bakery owned by the married couple had two – – –

Answer:  BREAD WINNERS

(I should’ve seen it immediately, but I kneaded a little time, to rise to the occasion.  A nifty pun though.  All old favorite clue words today.  And, only two of the jumbles seem to be new, as I already had “rwonb” and “ceddea” in my Tags.  The answer letter layout was cryptic enough.  The more obvious clue was all the loaves of bread displayed on the counter.  The less obvious – bonus clue – were the two awards, hanging on the wall.  “Best Rye” two years running!  Everyone run out to a bakery and buy some fresh baked bread!  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When the couple tried out their new furniture while watching TV, they watched a – – –

Answer:  SITCOM

(I have to guess that we’ve had “cognac” in the last few months!  I could use a “cognac” right now!  I thought it was new, but the jumble came up as not new, so that means we must’ve seen it, and with this specific jumble.  The jumble “bnilem” seems to be the only new jumble.  The answer letter layout was cryptic despite being only six letters long.   The cartoon has familiar characters . . . and a new couch.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Cute.  No new clue words, and three new jumbles.  We’ve seen “gilco”.  Nice answer letter layout.  Homey cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DREW A CROWD

(Not for nothin’ – as we like to say in Brooklyn – but this seems like either a rerun, or a variation of a rerun.  The answer, that is, at least.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We have definitely seen “rawey” before.  The answer letter layout was a decent jumble.  It’s hard to hide the answer with those Ws and Ds.  Very cool cartoon.  I’m sure Jeff can supply us with the names of all the characters.  No doubt either some of Jeff’s pals and/or favorites.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
