Answer:  BUILD AN AUDIENCE

(Oh, yeah.  These guys are going to get a lot done, with a large flat screen TV taking up the entire work bench!  They’ll probably take turns making caveman grunts, a la Tim Allen, while they watch the pros actually build something.  This was in reality a fairly tough Sunday Jumble.  There were no new clue words, but 5 of the jumbles came up as new.  The only one I can confirm that we’ve seen before is “tacili”, and still it gave me some trouble.  The other one that gave me a little hassle was “ombyed”.  I didn’t have to back into either of them.  I just skipped over them after a bit, and then came back and gottem.  The answer letter layout was pretty nifty.  I liked how the word NAIL stands out.  Possibly a bit of purposeful misdirection?  I settled on AN as the second word right away, then just saw AUDIENCE.  The remaining DBLIU gave me BUILD . . .  and the pun!  Tim and Al are looking good, in Jeff’s cartoon.  Be well and do goo, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Congrats to North Carolina and Villanova on their big wins yesterday!  They’re going on to the Big Game, Monday night.  Should be a great game.     YUR
