Answer:  OPERATING

(Bzzztt!!!  If you didn’t find today’s Jumble amusing then:  “Remove funny bone!”  This, of course, is a send up to the Milton Bradley game:  Operation.  It came out in the mid ’60s, but it’s still available today.  Except, now it’s made by Hasbro, who bought out MB some time in the ’80s.

No new clue words today, but all of the jumbling was new, to me.  None were too hard, but they were all jumbled well.  Splendid job on the answer letter layout.  It was another marvelous jumble.  Very amusing cartoon.  The patient on the table looks like the patient in the board game!  Doctors do use robotics for some surgeries today.  They’re not like the ones in the cartoon though.  They’re more of a precise device that the doctors control with a control panel, for getting at fine, fine things, like micro-surgery.  Pretty remarkable.  You may have seen demonstrations of it in a news segment, or scientific show.  Be well . . . and hopefully you won’t need robotic surgery.  And, do good, friends.)   —   YUR
