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

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

Image result for cartoonists

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

Answer:  GOOD RIDDENTS

(Great stinky pun!  Best one in a while, I’d say.  No new clue words, today.  But, two of the jumbles came up as new.  We have seen both “tidot” and “ating” before.  Although, it did take me skipping, and coming back, to get “giant”.  I just wasn’t seeing it.  Then, the excellent answer letter layout had me stumped for a couple of minutes.  The quotation marks definitely helped!  Fine cartoon.  I just can’t make out much of the detail.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

EMACO  =  CAMEO,  NDORF  =  FROND,  YEGRES  =  GEYSER,  TCWISH  =  SWITCH   —   Giving us:  AEOFRNGEYESWT

Clue/Question:  For the Steuben County Landfill, converting trash into electricity wasn’t a – – – 

Image result for steuben county indiana landfill

Answer:  WASTE OF ENERGY

(Ah!  I see besides a Steuben County in Southwestern New York, which I am fairly familiar with, there is also one in Indiana.  They both have a landfill, and they both have a gas to energy program.  Hopefully, most landfills do.  It’s a great idea.  

There were no new clue words today, and only two of the jumbles came up as new.  They have used both “emaco” and “yegres” in the past.  I almost went “greesy” again, before remembering that it would be “greasy”.  The answer letter layout made for a beautiful jumble.  Great cartoon, showing the garbage trucks, the bulldozer, the gulls, gas collection pipes, the kids and the foreman.  It looks like the little girl brought her own bag of garbage!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
