MSCOUT  =  CUSTOM,  TALYNE  =  NEATLY,  CLOLEA  =  LOCALE,  RNHUCC  =  CRUNCH,  FISYTH  =  SHIFTY,  LONEOD  =  NOODLE   —   Giving us:  COATOCARNHHIOO

Clue/Question:  Many of the commuters heading into the station had colds, together, they rode the – – –

Pre-Answer:  Two Words   “(5-letters)-(4-letters)”  (5-letters)

Answer:  ACHOOCHOO TRAIN

(I’d say that this is a good stinky pun, but my nose is so stuffed up . . . that I can’t smell a thing!  JKLOL!  Well, it didn’t take a genius to figure this one out.  If anything, it took someone with a small child’s mentality.  And, that’s yer Uncle Rave!  Cute pun!

None of today’s clue words are new, however five of the six jumbles appear to be so.  I can vouch that they’ve definitely used “fisyth” before.  The answer letter layout was a pretty good jumble.  It might have been a little more challenging if they could have broken up the the HH and the OO a little more.  But, it wasn’t super obvious.

The cartoon is great, of course.  A little ironic that the Missus and I watched “Murder on the Orient Express” last night, on HBO.  It was okay.  I’d never read the book before, and I hadn’t seen the 1974 film version.  Both film versions had all-star casts, although I’d have to give the nod to the 1974 one.  I just thought that the crime’s conclusion was very contrived, and not very believable.  Maybe, the story played better in 1934, when it was published, but I was disappointed.  Good performances though.  I was particularly impressed with Josh Gad’s McQueen.  He’s only in his 30s, and is known for comedies, but he was good in a dramatic role.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
