Answer:  SHARP LOOKOUT

(Great pun!  Definitely no gimme!  A clutter of cutlery.  Pointedly challenging.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve undeniably seen “drants” before.  Hey, ralis95!  On page 1 of your world famous clue word database, in the third section – or fifth column, there is a Word “akooz”, with the Alpha Equivalent of “kazoo”.  I think somehow the *words* just got switched.  The answer letter layout was exceptional.  There was nothing obvious there, at all.  At first I was thinking words like KEEN and EYE, but clearly there was not an E or Y to be found.  I finally saw SHARP, but when I went to write in the answer I started writing in SHARP OUTLOOK.  I caught myself after the first two letters of OUTLOOK, and changed it to LOOKOUT.  But, how wrong would SHARP OUTLOOK be, as valid answer to this Jumble?  Sure, it’s a bit of a stretch, but is it necessarily wrong?  Hmm.  The cartoon has more of a gun store vibe!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
