Clue/Question:  Getting a cash advance on his credit card wasn’t in his – – – 

Credit card

Answer:  BEST INTEREST

(Very clever!  Boy, is this clown ever in for it!  The doofus probably thought he was a winner, because he either broke even, or made a couple of bucks.  He better pay off that cash advance PDQ, or he’ll be paying for it long after his wife cools off.  Unless you really know what you’re doing, you’re not going to beat the house.  It’s a fact of life, people.  Probably the only surer thing in life, than the casinos winning, is that the credit card banks are not going to lose!  Legalized usury.  Chances are this poor schmuck caught the double-whammy!  But, he felt like a big shot for an hour or two.  Ain’t reality a bitch, son???  LOL!

We actually have a new clue word today!  Yes, the word that I had to back into – “beaker” – was not in the most recent edition of the ralis95 clue word database.  Hopefully, the boss is reading this.  The three other words came up as new jumbles, on my end, too.  The answer letter layout was another beautiful jumble.  Great cartoon.  You can tell that she’s pissed, and he knows that he’s toast.  Live and learn . . . sometimes the hard way.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  INVENT-ORY

(I love the historical ones!  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles look new to me.  Nice job on the answer letter layout.  No giveaways.  The cartoon shows quite an array of Edison’s inventions.  Fun Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  ADD-ONS

(No new clue words today.  All the jumbles but “dagapo” are new to me.  Another short answer.  Great cartoon.  The guy with the laurel wreath looks a little like Charlie Sheen!  Be well and do good, friends.)    —   YUR

Answer:  DIG IN

(This is actually a really great feeling.  After expending a lot of energy and time, to a largely physical endeavor,  you  work up a genuinely deserved appetite.  Your meal is your reward, because you really appreciate it.  This is pure satisfaction.

We have yet another new clue word today!  Surprisingly, “aisle” was not in the ralis95 clue word database.  But, it soon will be.  All the jumbles came up as new for me.  It took me a few minutes to figure out “magnum”.  Not a lot can be said of such a short answer letter layout, but it was good.  The cartoon makes me envious.  I was shoveling more snow this morning, and I hear we’re getting more in a couple of days!  Ay yi yi!  At this rate we won’t be able to plant anything until June!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  CHUTE THE BREEZE

(Plenty to like about today’s Jumble!  We have another surprising new clue word, in “zipper”.  ralis95 can finally add this common word to his world famous clue word database!  All but “tentik” represent new jumbles, from my vantage.  I struggled a bit in getting “uneasy”.  I think that was jumbled very nicely.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble, but, with the great cartoon and the quotation marks, I had the answer without even looking at it.  Of course, I did look at it for confirmation, but I didn’t really need to.

We lose interesting people almost on a daily basis.  The bizarre deaths of Bob Simon and David Carr, within a day of each other.  We lost Louis Jourdan on Valentine’s Day!  Golfers Billy Casper and Charlie Sifford.  In basketball we lost legendary college coaches Dean Smith and Jerry Tarkanian, then Jerome Kersey, then Earl Lloyd – the first Black man to play in the NBA, and now we’ve lost Anthony Mason – one of my all-time favorite Knicks!  And on Friday, the world lost Leonard Nimoy.  The inimitable Mr. Spock! Not sure why I’ve brought this up.  Maybe, because of today’s cryptoquote???  I guess it just seems like it’s been a busy month for deaths.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  EVIDENT

(Wow!  I completely struggled with the two 6-letter words today.  As it turns out, the word “caviar” is new to the Jumble!  ralis95 has a new word for his world famous clue word database.  I finally saw that word on my own, but I ended up backing into “census”, which is ironic, since I worked on the 2010 U.S. Census.  The answer letter layout was fine, but I was able to figure out the answer without the last two letters.  I’m a little surprised they didn’t go with EVI-“DENT”.  Nice slice of life cartoon.  Jeff will be going through this himself, soon enough!  Be well and do good friends.)   —   YUR

English: Thecount

Answer:  REVAMP IT

(A wonderfully stinky pun!  Lots to like.  No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up new for me.  The answer letter layout is really very good, especially for the size of the answer.  But, considering the letters and the question’s set up, it was pretty obvious that the second word was “IT”.  After that, it didn’t take too much to come up with “REVAMP”.  The cartoon is great!  Dracula as a corporate blood-sucker . . . hiring a PR firm . . . employing focus groups.  Very funny.  Be well . . . B + and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
