zoyow  =  woozy,  wonnk  =  known,  stheck  =  sketch,  chuicp  =  hiccup   —   giving us:  oknecip

clue/question:  he was in the market for a new banjo, so he needed to do this.

answer:  pick one

(great jumbling of the clue words.  the single vowel clue words are more challenging than you might think.  i had no problem with “known”, but “sketch” took a little more thought.  mr. hoyt has given us another new clue word, in “woozy”.  it’s funny, because it’s the kind of word you might say, but seldom write.  the answer letter layout was fair.  the cartoon was a little heavy handed, in my opinion.  seven banjos is an awful lot.  and, the impatience of the salesman/store owner made is a little over the top, and also not that believable.  a famous comedian/musician/actor like steve martin?  the salesman/store owner should have said something more like:  take you time.  i’m a big fan.  that’s it.  i’m bored.  be well and try to do good, today and everyday, friends.)   —   yur
