Answer:  COOKWEAR

Just a hint, for those of you who might be struggling to get today’s answer.  The answer is definitely a pun, that plays on what you’re seeing in the background of the cartoon.  Gotta run.   —   YUR

(Well, alrighty then!  I thought more of you were going to be like me.  I got all the clue words instantly, but I found both the cartoon’s dialog and the clue/question a little awkward.  None of the clue words are new, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “shikw” before.  I thought the answer letter layout was . . . diabolical, to borrow a word from one of our truest followers.  I was seeing WORK and CROW and CORK, but I wasn’t seeing COOK for a few minutes.  The three words I was seeing were using too many consonants for the other four letter word segment.  But, I finally saw COOK and then COOKWARE, and then the pun sunk in!  The cartoon of Julia Child and Paul Cushing Child was very amusing.  I think Jeff’s wife forced him to watch Julie & Julia!  Be well and do good, friends.)   – – –   YUR
