Answer:  GOBBLE GOBBLE

(Nice, holiday appropriate pun!  I didn’t need a pen to do this one.  All of the clue words are old favorites, and one of the jumbles, “sobbar”, has been used before.  The answer letter layout was swell, but with four repeating letters, it really didn’t present much of a challenge.  But, today isn’t about mental challenges.  It’s about giving thanks.  Hopefully, you all – like me – can find many things to be thankful for.  Life is good.  Happy Thanksgiving, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The rodent who lived in the big city was growing tired of the – – –

Answer:  RAT RACE

(I think this is a well worn Jumble theme.  Almost a Junior Jumble in its ease.  All of the clue words are old favorites, even though it’s been a while since we’ve seen “forage”.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “faret” having been used previously.  That jumble gave me pause for a couple of seconds.  It’s a good one.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble, but like I said, the answer wasn’t very tough.  The cartoon, however, is classic!  Really beautifully drawn, with lots of detail.  I especially like the fat rat by the garbage can, with the chicken bone in his hand.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

TNOHM  =  MONTH,  HELIW  =  WHILE,  SGNPIR  =  SPRING,  BOGONL  =  OBLONG   —   Giving us:  ONTWIESPRIBON

Clue/Question:  When she brought the girls delicious cake-like cookies, she earned – – –

Image result for brownies

Answer:  BROWNIE POINTS

(Sweet pun!  I love brownies, especially if they’re not too cakey.  They’re better when they’re dense and moist.  And, I don’t like frosted brownies.  Well, maybe it depends on the frosting.  A little drizzled chocolate, or powdered sugar is fine too.  But, I do like when they have chocolate chips in them.  Mmm!  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles are new today.  They’ve definitely used “heliw” before.  This jumble always makes me think of Julia Child for some reason.  All the jumbles came to me immediately today.  The answer letter layout was great, but the answer was very obvious to me.  Probably because of the great cartoon, and the clue/question.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  After the dog ripped up the deck of cards, the poker players couldn’t – – –

Answer:  DEAL WITH IT

(Not bad!  But of course, I’m kinda immune to stinky puns.  None of the clue words were new, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “tahew” some time in the past.  The answer letter layout did not give anything away.  It was actually a very good jumble.  The cartoon is fun.  I guess Gizmo isn’t a fan of cigar smoke.  Either that, or he was tired of always being left out of the game.  It’s funny how guys who normally don’t smoke – anything – will smoke cigars when it comes to playing poker.  It’s like it’s not officially a guys’ night out unless there’s cigar smoking.  Who says men aren’t complicated?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

ALOTG  =  GLOAT,  PUNIT  =  INPUT,  HMIRPS  =  SHRIMP,  RETESO  =  STEREO   —   Giving us:  GLAINTSHIPSTRE

Clue/Question:  They called the trick by many names, but Marco thought they were all . . .

Answer:  SPLITTING HARES

(Ooh!  Super, excellent, stinky pun!  Lots to love about this one.  All of the clue words were old favorites, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “alotg” in the past.  It took me a few seconds to come up with “stereo”.  The answer letter layout did an extraordinary job of hiding the answer.  A superior jumble, whoever came up with it.  For the answer I was looking at the cartoon, and the clue/question, for words they weren’t using.  I was thinking MAGIC, but no M or C, and the word wouldn’t make sense in quotes anyway.  But the quotes finally got me seeing HARES, and then SPLITTING, and the pun became evident.  It’s fun because, normally a magician saws a lady in half.  Usually his “lovely assistant”.  Rabbits are merely props.  Something to pull out of a hat.  So, to substitute the rabbit for the lady was the ingenious part of this clever cartoon, and great Jumble.  Great job, Dave Blazek.  My paper does not carry “Loose Parts”, but it looks like a great strip.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When Jill asks her kids for help dinner, the results are – – –

Answer:  HALFBAKED

(One of those literal/figurative puns.  At least in this case.  Very nice.  All of the clue words were old favorites today.  But, three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “kikah” before.  The answer letter layout was a terrific jumble.  There was nothing obvious about it.  Cute cartoon.  I’m sure Amy and Jess meant well, but poor Jill!  The Pajama Diaries is new to me.  Maybe to you too.  You can check them out below.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

WPEST  =  SWEPT,  RIWEP  =  WIPER,  KIVONE  =  INVOKE,  LAGTEN  =  TANGLE   —   Giving us:  SWTWIRNOKANG

Clue/Question:  Helen and Ed’s attempt to convince Dustin to get a job – – –

Image result for slacker

Answer:  WASN’T WORKING

(And, neither is Dustin.  Nor, is he soon to be at this rate.  Cute pun.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “riwep” having been used some time in the past.  The answer letter layout made for a nifty jumble too.  The cartoon is fun.  My newspaper doesn’t carry Dustin, but this particular one is very reminiscent of another cartoon that my paper does carry.  So as nobody gets in any legal trouble, I will keep the name of that cartoon on the DL.  This is fun.  I wonder what guest cartoonists are coming up next?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
