(Okay.  Obviously, Tiger Woods is not the only black golfer, just as Phil Mickelson is not the only left-handed golfer out there.  But, I think it works.  And, so does today’s pun/answer.  It may “boggle” your mind to learn that “boggle” is a new clue word for us.  If we had it before it must have come with a Sunday Jumble, before our friend started looking in on Sunday spoilers.  It can now be safely added to the ralis95 clue word database.  And, all of the jumbles appear to be new again!  Hmm!  The answer letter layout was, again, desirably cryptic today.  Nothing obvious about it.  And, the cartoon does a fine job showing what’s probably the first tee.  I like the divots and the “bonus clue” walking shoes.  That’s about it for today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  FLAT BROKE

(Now, that’s a good stinky pun!  Have you ever noticed how many people say “broke” when the should be saying “broken”?  It’s really annoying.  I’m far from being the Grammar Police, but certain obvious offenses do irk me to no end.  Oh, well.  There were no new clue words today, but once again all the jumbles are coming up as new.  What up, Hoyty?  Anyway, none of them stumped me.  The answer letter layout was cryptic enough, but the whole set up made the answer fairly obvious . . . again.  Quality, but standard fare, cartoon.  It’s much more fun being snarky, folks!  That’s about it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Wow!  Sort of a pun.  But, it was fun.  I knew the answer even before looking at the cartoon and question.  With only 4 letters in the answer letter layout being repeated, and seeing the answer’s layout, it came to me right away.  That’s the problem with answers like this.  There’s no good way to hide things.  Well, there were no new clue words today, but once again all of the jumbles were coming up as new for me.  I know that Hoyt keeps his own database of clue words, possibly with jumbles that he’s used in the past.  But, I wouldn’t doubt that he doesn’t just Google some of these word jumbles, to see if they come back with an entry from unclerave!  Fun cartoon!  Enjoy the rest of the weekend, folks.  As always, be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I’m elated that WordPress has gone back to the older format for the Zemanta Related Articles.  The “newer” method was SO tedious.  I’m glad they finally realized that not all change is for the better!  Although, it does still tend to jump around some.   —   YUR

(A good, olde fashioned, stinky pun!  Probably because they didn’t have a sewage system in those days!  We have no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  I found none to be difficult though.  The answer letter layout was sufficiently cryptic.  Another good jumble.  A great period cartoon.  I half expected to see Robin Hood scaling the castle wall.  Be well and do good, citizens.)   —   YUR

Answer:  MARK MY WORDS

(Okay, so the highlighter actually came much later.  The first Magic Markers!  Nice little bonus clue, there in the narrative, guys.  Surprisingly, “spooky” is coming up as a new word!  Seems like we’ve seen it before, but maybe it came out on a Sunday, before ralis95 was looking for them.  Maybe our newer friend, Bob, can confirm?  All of the jumbles are coming up as new for me.  Great job with the answer letter layout!  Another great cryptic jumble.  And, I always enjoy the period cartoons.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  PAIRADOCS

(I get the feeling Jeff’s been hanging out with Stephan Pastis lately!  It’s a great pun though.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up new for me.  I thought the answer letter layout was another excellent jumble.  Great cartoon.  I haven’t seen the Back To The Future movies in quite some time, but they were always a favorite.  Christopher Lloyd was great as Doc.  Ya know, my paper doesn’t carry Pearls Before Swine, but I did see it earlier this week.  Stephan scored a triple with his.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  POLETREE FARM

(Now, that is one stinky pun!  But, I love it!  No new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up as new for me.  The answer letter layout was pretty cryptic.  I figured the last word had to be “farm”.  From the remaining letters I was able to put together “pole-tree”.  Fine cartoon.  Made me think of Ponderosa Pines!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
