(Not really a pun, but it made for a fun Jumble.  There were no new clue words, but all of the jumbling was new, to me.  I thought the jumbling was very imaginative, but I only hesitated – slightly – in getting “lagoon”.  The others I just kind of saw, immediately.  The answer letter layout was satisfying, especially considering the shortness of the answer.  The cartoon was a real piece of work today.  The Spanish sailors, with one using the word “invincible”.  The Spanish Armada was thought to be “invincible” . . . until the English and Dutch spanked them pretty good!  The silliness of a large group of octopuses attacking the ships.  They are such freaky and scary looking – but fascinating – creatures.  Looks like they already took care of one ship, because our classic sinking sail boat, on the horizon, looks more like a Spanish Galleon today!  Fun stuff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
