(Excellent!  All the clue words were old friends of us Jumblers.  Nothing new today, but some interesting jumbles.  I was duped into starting to write RESORT, before I realized there was two Es and not two Ts.  Then, because I already had the R down, I entertained the idea of ROSETE, which of course is short a T.  Finally, it hit me that it was our old friend “stereo”.  I really liked the jumbling of “island” too.  The answer letter layout didn’t give too much away.  I might have led with “around”, and placed “encore” in the fifth or sixth spot, but that is really splitting hairs.  But, how can you not enjoy a cartoon that features our two buddies???  It was all in the clue/question today, for me.  A pun about puns!  Beautiful!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I have no idea why Zemanta was providing me with pics of Jimena Navarette.  But, who am I to turn her down?!?!  Could you?   —   YUR
