(But, of course!  Nobody likes hair in their food.  All of the clue words are old favorites, again.  And, we’ve seen both “grevon” and “miyfan” before.  The other two appear to be new.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble.  It gave nothing away.  The cartoon, and its dialog, did a great job of setting up the pun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.”   —   George Carlin

(Ya gotta love George Carlin!  He was the best.  Maybe not at statistics, but at comedy for sure.  Technically, I think he’s really talking about the mean, and not the average.  But, as soon as you over-analyze a joke, you spoil the humor.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If people stand in a circle long enough, they’ll eventually begin to dance.”   —   George Carlin

(Maybe not well . . . but they will dance.  I remember when I was in college, and we would have cast parties at the end of a show.  Once everybody was fully loosened up someone would put on Billy Joel’s Piano Man and call out “Circle up!”  We’d all get together in a massive huddle and sing that hackneyed song, rocking and swaying, more or less as one.  I guess that was sort of dancing.  We weren’t proud, but we were loud!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The reason I talk to myself is because I’m the only one whose answer I accept.”   —   George Carlin

Visual Description:  Near miss outside the barber shop.


Clue/Question:  What the reckless driver gave the barber.


(I originally had “aleve”, in stead of “leave”!  What a dope!  But, I still had the Answer, regardless of my faux pas.  Of course, upon further review, I realized I had an additional “L” and was missing an “E”, because of my error.  I wasn’t thinking of the NSAID, per sé.  I was thinking more that the product was named after a verb.  But, I was mixing up words – in my little head – like allay and assuage, with alleviate . . . where the name most likely came from.  See what happens when you start to get cocky?!?!  “Jostle” was a pretty good clue word.  Stay thirsty, my friends.)   — YUR

P.S.  Remember George Carlin’s take on the near miss?  Priceless, and right on target . . . as usual.  God, I miss that guy! YUR
