Answer:  HAND OVER FIST

(One of our stranger idioms, I’d say.  It’s supposed to mean making lots of money.  And, I guess, its supposed to mean quickly, too.  I just can’t visually process the literal act of hand over fist.  Anybody know the origins of the phrase?  We have another NEW clue word today!  ralis95 will be adding the word “rosier” to his clue word database.  I had a little trouble getting “fibula”, which is strange, because that is the only bone that I’ve ever broken in my life.  Old diehard Unclerave readers remember this!  Splendid answer letter layout.  Cool cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
