Answer:  SLOW TO A CRAWL

(A Jumble worthy of The Discovery Channel, or maybe even the National Geographic channel.  Possibly narrated by David Attenborough!  I wonder if he would ever mention that it was a stinky pun?  He’s a very sophisticated gentleman.  From a very proper British family too.  But at age 95 he might just figure what the heck!  Do the Brits even say “heck”???  I’ve heard some say “Back off Boogaloo”.  But that’s for later.

All of today’s clue words are tried and true.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “crasf” in past Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was another terrific twelve letter jumble.  It was more than adequately cryptic.  The L’s and W’s, and the answer slots layout, were the big clues for me.

Fine cartoon of a convoy of centipedes.  Strangely enough, no centipede has exactly 100 legs!  But, just about all of them are venomous, and can deliver very painful bites.  So don’t mess with them, folks.  They kinda give me the heebie jeebies anyway.  Cute Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/03/18

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm.”   —   Sam Levenson

(I guess this was Sam’s way of telling folks NOT to call him for help moving into that new house/apartment!  Just kidding, folks.  Self-reliance is a good thing, but everyone should realize that no one can do it all on their own.  Remember John Lennon, via Ringo:  “I get by with a little help from my friends.”  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  It didn’t take long for Richard Starkey‘s parents to realize he was going to . . .

Answer:  BE A STARR

(Wow!  How many of you had to back into “fiasco” like I did?  The other three clue words were pretty obvious, but I had to look at the cartoon, *figure out* the answer, and then try to come up with a word with an “A” and an “S” in those positions.  Even knowing what I needed didn’t make it any more obvious.  It still took some thought!  Great drawing, Jeff!  And, in case you hadn’t heard, Ringo Starr – nee Richard Starkey – turned 71 this morning!  Happy Birthday, Ringo!  Many, many more, please.  The world needs its icons!  Be well, friends.)   —   YUR
