Answer:  PAIR TREES

(Initially, a head scratcher.  But then . . . a major groaner!  “The Forest of Lost Scissors?”  Wow.  THAT is out there.  Did you know that in the New York City area there are a lot of people who will say/ask:  Do you/Can I have “a scissor”?  Not a pair of scissors, but “a scissor”.  It was one of the many little mind blowing aspects of getting used to the area.  None of the clue words were new today, but all of the jumbles came up as new, again.  I had some trouble solving “spoil” and “social”, but not to the point where I had to back into either of them.  The answer letter layout was masterful, again.  For a while, I didn’t know where the guys were going with this one!  I’m betting that there were a fair amount of you guys in the same boat as me.  Bizarre, but fun cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Iris asked:  What do you mean when you write that there are no new clue words? I don’t understand, what clue words. Do you mean words in the drawing/puzzle or the riddle? Is that what you call the clue words? Thanks

Answer:  The four un-jumbled words (six on Sunday), with the circle boxes, to the left of the cartoon.  I compare them to the copy of a clue word database compiled by a gentleman who goes by “ralis95”.  If they’re already on the list then they’re not new.  “New” clue words are a fair rarity, but we see them from time to time.  I could not “confirm” your comment, as there was something hinky about how your IP/email address came over.  I need to protect the integrity of the blog!  LOL!     YUR
