AGOLT  =  GLOAT,  SERDS  =  DRESS,  CTOONT  =  COTTON,  FRUIPY  =  PURIFY   —   Giving us:  GOTESSCTNUIF

Clue/Question:  The designs for the new eyeglasses were chosen after this.

Answer:  _ _ _ _ _   _ _ _ _ _ _ _       ***FOCUS TESTING***

***  Shortly after 5:00 PM EDT  (Okay folks, the contest is completed!  The answer should be as above.  I don’t know what “Focus Setting” would be, but if that does turn out to be the answer in tomorrow morning’s newspaper then . . . I probably shouldn’t be running this blog.  This month’s co-winners are Chris and Keith, with honorable mentions to Paul and Wimpy.  But, thanks to ALL who took the time and effort to write in.  All you word-nerds are winners, in my book!)      YUR

(It’s been long overdue, friends!  Yes, it’s time for this months edition of the Unclerave’s Wiseguy of the Day contest!  Who out there has the right combination of the correct answer and an appropriate stinging barb?  As always, the wisecrack can be directed towards: the answer, the cartoon, the clue words – hey, why not? – or yours truly!

It’s a twelve letter answer, of moderate difficulty.  The answer letter layout is sufficiently cryptic.  All the clue words are well jumbled old favorites.  We’ve even had the jumble FRUIPY before!  So, let’s have at it, word-nerds!  If you’re having a little difficulty with it I suggest you listen to Damn the Torpedoes.  Or, perhaps Moving Waves would be more to the point!  Be well and do good, friends.  I’ll check back later.)   —   YUR

TOSOY  =  SOOTY,  SITOF  =  FOIST,  FRUIPY  =  PURIFY,  LENZOZ  =  NOZZLE —   Giving us:  SOFOTPRFOLE

Clue/Question:  A good strategy for a pocket billiards team.

Answer:  POOL THEIR EFFORTS

(All-around great jumble, today!  Some good clue words.  Nice scrambling of the answer letters.  A fun cartoon.  And, a clever little play on words!  What more could you ask for, chilluns???  Be good, do good, friends!)   — YUR
