CIYIOD  =  IDIOCY,  MBENUR  =  NUMBER,  MICONE  =  INCOME,  NARPIS  =  SPRAIN,  SSALPH  =  SPLASH,  NLUUGP  =  UNPLUG   —   Giving us:  DONUOMPAISPHNG

Pre-Answer:  Two Words  (4-letters)  “(10-letters)”

Answer:  PUNS  something with DOG, or DOGS something with PUN?    Aah!  GOOD “PUNMANSHIP”!!!  Many thanks to Sue Law (first) and to all the other responders.  Although, Sue DID jump the gun a bit.  I generally don’t like people sending in unsolicited “answers”, but she lucked out that I had already thrown in the towel on this one! (She replied to Saturday’s as I was constructing today’s.)      YUR

(And, I have no idea what the answer is, folks!  The clue words are all old favorites, but four of the jumbles are coming up as new.  We’ve seen both “narpis” and “ssalph” in the past.  I was able to get all the clue words instantly, but the answer just isn’t coming to me.  The answer letter layout isn’t giving me anything.  I’m just figuring from the wording of the Clue/Question – “play on words” – that PUN, or PUNS, has to be part of it.  And, from the great cartoon, that DOG, or DOGS, has to be somehow part of it.  I’m just unable to put it all together at this point.  I’m sure the word “understandable” in the Clue/Question is probably a key as well, but I’m not there yet.  Are many of you struggling with this, or is it just me???  Feel free to blurt out the answer, if you know it.  I don’t have time to work on this.  Be well and do good friends.)   —  YUR

PS.  The pink-nosed golden reminds me of my Ginger!      YUR

LEFTE  =  FLEET,  LUVAT  =  VAULT,  SOFAIC  =  FIASCO,  THYPRO  =  TROPHY   —   Giving us:  FLEULTFAOTRO

Clue/Question:  To make the triple play, the defense needed an – – –

Answer:  ALLOUT EFFORT

(Beautiful!  I love it!  You don’t see triple plays every day!  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “luvat” before.  Both “fiasco” and “trophy” took me a few seconds to get.  The answer letter layout was a marvelous jumble.  It did a great job of hiding the answer!  The cartoon is a bit of a jumble, with the three defenders at first, but sure, it can happen.  Probably the pitcher, and first and second basemen.  I really like the dejected guy at second, and the guy who desperately tried to get to first by sliding head first.  An overall great jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  These guys were famous for turning double plays, back in the day, but I thought I’d send our guys a little Cubs love, for giving us such a great baseball jumble.   —   YUR

Visual Description:  A boatload of fun.

ATVIL  =  VITAL,  OYARN  =  RAYON,  OBEWLB  =  WOBBLE,  EDDGER  =  DREDGE   —   Giving us:  VTARONWOBDREE

Clue/Question:  When it came to the design of his new yacht, he – – –

Answer:  WENT OVERBOARD

(Even the seagull is impressed.  Or, at least stunned.  The 1% are going to do what they’re going to do.  It doesn’t matter to them if it’s crass and self-indulgent.  If Jeff wanted to add a little poetic justice, he could have added a great white with his mouth open.  But, then he’d have to change the expression on one of their faces.  LOL.  All of today’s clue words were old favorites, but all of the jumbles came up as new!  The answer letter layout was awesome.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The answer made for a fun pun.  The cartoon is very cool.  You can even see the water-slider and the yacht on the woman’s cellphone/camera!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  JACK-RABBIT

(Very nice.  No new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  Saw them all instantly.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble.  Funny cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/24/16

Visual Description:  Military buzz-cuts.

LIDAV  =  VALID,  SLACH  =  CLASH,  GRANDO  =  DRAGON,  COTPEK  =  POCKET   —   Giving us:  ALICADGOPOT

Clue/Question:  The speedy barber was moving – – – 

Image result for dragons

Answer:  AT A GOOD CLIP

(Great pun!  Before looking at the answer letters I was thinking AT A NICE CLIP, but that’s just a po-tay-to/po-tah-to thing.  No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I had to give a little thought to “grando”!  I thought the answer letter layout made for a very cryptic jumble.  I wouldn’t be surprised if some had some difficulty getting the answer.  The cartoon was shear madness.  Truly a cut above.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR  

Jumble Spoiler – 08/23/16

Visual Description:  For better, or for worse?

PEMTT  =  TEMPT,  AUTOQ  =  QUOTA,  CINRIO  =  IRONIC,  CAUVMU  =  VACUUM   —   Giving us:  TTQIIU

Clue/Question:  He complained about his job incessantly.  His wife told him to – – – 

Answer:  QUIT IT

(Not bad.  No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “pemtt” in the past.  None gave me any trouble though.  The answer letter layout was a nice jumble, but I thought the answer was fairly obvious.  I liked the cartoon.  Sharing a couple of brews, out on the porch . . . with the pooch!  Good stuff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  The big bopper.

SUTGE  =  GUEST,  ALQEU  =  EQUAL,  SOTFRY  =  FROSTY,  GHUATT  =  TAUGHT   —   Giving us:  GEULRSG

Clue/Question:  The boxer who became a baseball player was a – – – 

Answer:  SLUGGER

(Palooka power!  Not bad!  There actually was a new clue word today, in “equal”.  Such a simple word.  But, our good friend, ralis95, will have to add it to his world famous clue word database.  And, it looks like all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout was swell.  I like our hero’s crooked/broken nose.  Nice touch, Jeff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
