(People who don’t appreciate the art of the pun would call this one a real groaner!  Those kind of people just bore the living crap outta me.  For a meat and potatoes word-nerd, such as myself, they are pure poetry!  And, they don’t require any lengthy analysis, with that  Well, what does it mean to you?  psychiatrist kind of talk.  Hey dipshit!  If it meant something to me I wouldn’t have asked in the first place!  But, I digress.

I thought that all of the clue words were expertly jumbled today.  I actually had a harder time getting the five letter words than the six letter ones.  Unless you’re a carpenter or a contractor, how often does the word “joist” come up?  I suspected it was the word, but held back, and didn’t commit until looking at the cartoon and clue/question.  Yes, I backed into it today.  The funny thing is that we’ve seen SOJIT before.  The answer letter layout was marvelous, and the cartoon takes you back to the 1850s.  Nice way to close out the work week.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

SOJIT  =  JOIST,  FDYFA  =  DAFFY,  SLTUCP  =  SCULPT,  PPEMIL  =  PIMPLE   —   Giving us:  ISDASUTPPE

Clue/Question:  The quarterback did this after being presented with the endorsement deal.

Answer:  PASSED IT UP

(Much better, today!  Though NOT a new word, “joist” is not a word most of use very often.  Not unless you’re a carpenter, or something.  Surprisingly, both “pimple” and “daffy” are new to the database.  “Sculpt” is a great word, but fairly obvious, considering there are five consonants and only one vowel, and that vowel is a U.  Perhaps it could have been jumbled better.  Tough call.  The answer letter layout didn’t give anything away, and that’s always a welcome sight.  I’m betting that a good number of you had to work some to get today’s answer.  Not like yesterday’s.  Yesterday I had the fewest weekday visits that I can remember.  Which is a little strange, because I’ve seen a significant increase in my subscriptions.  I’m up about 25% since October.  Maybe it’s the wind up to Christmas crunch time?  Maybe there’s a newer jumble spoiler site out there??  Maybe some have just lost interest?  It bears watching.  If this is the beginning of a trend I may have to consider shutting this blog down.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I’d rather feature “Mighty Mouse” than “Tom Terrific”.  Besides, Flutie Flakes set the trend for these kind of sponsored products.      YUR
