Answer:  MULTITUSKING

(I love it!  Sure, it’s a stinky pun.  But, I think it’s very fresh, and very clever!  I’m not even sure if “Mammoth Science” is a comic strip, or merely a very amusing and educational book.  But, I’d love it if my newspaper ran it.

All of today’s clue words are already on the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  However, three of the jumbles are coming up as new, with only “tinket” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble.  Nicely cryptic.  My clues came from the final answer slots’ quotation marks and hyphen, and  the marvelous cartoon.

Such a clever cartoon!  I guess if today’s elephants are – allegedly – not fond of mice, then ancient mammoths probably felt the same way about prehistoric rats!  Our elephants demonstrate intelligence, sociability, and cooperation, and I bet mammoths had the same traits.  Fine job, David Macaulay!  I hope the guys bring you back again!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
