Answer:  TAKING ORDERS

(Instead of giving orders!  A pun . . . by way of irony.  I like it.  There were no new clue words, but every one of the jumbles did come up as new today.  The answer letter layout was exceptional today.  An absolutely brilliant jumble.  The cartoon was cute.  Looks like the ol’ general is doing a little multi-tasking, taking phone orders and orders in person.  The scenario is a little farfetched, but it’s fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
