(Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding!  We have another winner, folks!  A relevant, relatively modern pun.  Merriam Webster’s has the first known use of the word brainiac being in 1982.  WordPresss’ spell-check does not even recognize the word, so today’s answer might escape some Brits.  There were no new clue words today, but I’m seeing all the jumblings as new.  None of them were terribly difficult to un-jumble though.  RIOCIN reminds me of ricin, which is bad, but “bicker” reminds me of a girl I once loved, named Bricker.  And, that can’t be bad. The answer letter layout was fantastic.  It was a brilliant jumble in itself.  But, it’s the cartoon that really makes today’s Jumble.  With the wise owl as the teacher, and two animals that are considered some of the smartest in the animal kingdom, sitting in the front row.  The dolphin has his personal little water tank, and the monkey looks like he’s tired of always being beaten to the punch.  There’s even a little irony in this, as the yak is not really considered to be a very intelligent beast.  Another fun one!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
