Answer:  PULLED A MUSCLE

(I’d say more wordplay than pun.  Not terribly difficult.  A nice long answer though!  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, yet all of their jumbles came up as new.  The only one that took me some thought was “mutate”.  The answer letter layout was actually pretty good.  It’s just that there are two visual clues in the cartoon.  One, you see the guy grabbing his arm, in pain.  And two, the company name on the banner/sign in the background is Kingco, which could be a play on Kinkos.  A kink is a pain, that can be caused by a pull.  And of course, the clue/question was very leading.  Great cartoon.  All the letters might have made it seem like it was going to be more difficult than it ended up being.  I guess size isn’t everything!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
