(People who don’t appreciate the art of the pun would call this one a real groaner!  Those kind of people just bore the living crap outta me.  For a meat and potatoes word-nerd, such as myself, they are pure poetry!  And, they don’t require any lengthy analysis, with that  Well, what does it mean to you?  psychiatrist kind of talk.  Hey dipshit!  If it meant something to me I wouldn’t have asked in the first place!  But, I digress.

I thought that all of the clue words were expertly jumbled today.  I actually had a harder time getting the five letter words than the six letter ones.  Unless you’re a carpenter or a contractor, how often does the word “joist” come up?  I suspected it was the word, but held back, and didn’t commit until looking at the cartoon and clue/question.  Yes, I backed into it today.  The funny thing is that we’ve seen SOJIT before.  The answer letter layout was marvelous, and the cartoon takes you back to the 1850s.  Nice way to close out the work week.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
