Answer:  IN THE PIPELINE

(Maybe not a stinky pun, but certainly a stinky business!  It’s one of those Jumbles where they are clearly showing something in the cartoon, but working overtime not to use a certain word.  And, speaking of a certain word, can it be true that we’ve never had “hippo” before.  I actually did struggle with the jumble for a few seconds.  But, when the word came to me it looked like an old favorite.  I can’t find it on the world famous ralis95 clue word database, so I guess the big boss-man is going to have make another addition to it.  We’ve definitely seen “ntihn” before, and “etrtle” made me look a couple of times before I saw the “letter”.

The answer letter layout was an impressive 13-letter jumble.  But, the leading nature of the clue/question, and the cartoon, made it a very easy solve for me.  For those of you who aren’t all that much into the visual clues I suppose this could have been harder for you.

The cartoon is great.  It uses the popular stereotype of big oilmen being cowboys.  And, there is absolutely no doubt that the construction guys are building a pipeline.  A fine Saturday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
