Answer:  WRITE OF PASSAGE

(Excellent, literate pun!  And a great Jumble!  With great use of alliteration!  A lot of snobs will tell you that alliteration and puns are pretty lowbrow.  Tell them to stick it where the sun don’t shine!  I love ’em both.  I hope that doesn’t sound too “coarse” because . . . that is our newest clue word to add to the ralis95 clue word database.  Yes, it is a new clue word.  Assonance . . . and I never even realized this until today.  Most of the jumbles came up as new today as well.  We have definitely seen “zehewe” before.  A carefully crafted answer letter layout.  A real Jim-dandy jumble.  The cartoon is a little creepy.  Part Harry Potter, part Stephen King-esque tale.  As a matter of fact, that could be J.
