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
