Answer:  LOTS AND LOTS

(They probably could have worked this one so the answer would be:  LOTS OF LOTS, but they went the AND route.  None of the clue words are new, but three of the jumbles appear to be so.  I can vouch that we’ve seen “neess” sometime in the past.  Nice jumbles, but none gave me any trouble.  The answer letter layout was a fine jumble as well.  The cartoon and it’s dialog set things up nicely.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  On a totally unrelated note, I was reading a USA Today Sports article, this morning, on a journeyman golfer, named Rob Oppenheim.  The thing that struck me was that the article said he was 26, but turned pro . . . in 2003!  Even Tiger Woods was older than 13 when he first turned pro!  Clearly, they meant he is 36, but why don’t they have proof readers?  This isn’t a local article by the hometown newspaper, it’s the USA Today Sports section!  And, after Googling the guy, I found out that this morning’s story is mainly a rehash of something that happened in October!  I know the time between the Super Bowl and pitchers and catchers reporting is a little slow, sports-wise, but shouldn’t that mean they’d have just a little more time for accuracy???     YUR

PPS.  I found the Super Bowl 50 halftime show to be very entertaining.  I’ve been hearing two extreme reactions, that just kind of boggle my mind.  One, coming from some Millennial twit, saying that the Cold Playfeatured performance – was somehow less than the secondary performances of Beyoncé and Bruno MarsNo . . . it wasn’t.  Cold Play provided the songs, and Bruno/Beyoncé provided the dance . . . with a smattering of rhythmic singing, just kind of thrown in.  Two, is Rudy Giuliani’s ridiculous objection to Beyoncé’s performance.  Not because she was scantily dressed, and thrusting her pelvis, and shaking her lovely tushie, but because he considered it . . . “an attack on police”.  Give me a break!  The Black Lives Matter movement is not anti police, it’s just pro fairness.  Maybe Rudy needs to start an Irrelevant Retired Mayors Lives Matter movement.  He just saw all the Bruno and Beyoncé kids on the field, and just wanted to scream:  Get offa my lawn!  Go back to sleep, Rudy.     YUR
