Answer:  KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

(For me, this was the toughest Sunday Jumble in quite a while.  Only one of the jumbles was a gimme for me, and that was “forgot”.  It took me quite a bit of time to un-jumble “relent”, “karate” and “disown”.  And “cuckoo” seemed a little too obvious, so I had to double check the spelling in the dictionary.  Not surprisingly, all of today’s jumbles came up as new.  And, both “cuckoo” and “hippie” are new clue words.  Our pal, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database for those two.  The answer letter layout was  a very nice jumble, but getting the final answer was a little anti-climatic,  considering the tough time I had with the clue words.  The cartoon and the dialog really helped in getting the answer.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
