Answer:  APPLYING HIMSELF

(A pun that takes the literal . . . and applies the figurative!  Or, vice versa.  Very nice, either way.  Uh, guess what, guys?  We have a new clue word today, in “visual”!  Can you believe it?  It’s been part of every Jumble Spoiler since sometime in 2008, but it’s never been used as a clue word, until today!  Will ralis95 pick up on this?  Depends on whether he reads the email this should generate.  Most of the jumbles were new, with the exception of “noycot”.  They’ve used that for “tycoon” before.  Wonderful answer letter layout.  It didn’t make the answer obvious for me.  At first, I was thinking the second word might be  PLAYING, but then FEPMHISL didn’t want to cooperate.  But, by removing the P, I was able to see . . . HIMSELF!  The now leftover P fit right in with PLAYING, to make for APPLYING.  Hey!  Whatever it takes.  Classic Knurek cartoon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
