Answer:  FOURFRONT

(FAB-ulous stinky pun!  It was fifty years ago last year.  Sgt. Pepper taught the folks to cheer.  Ah, yes.  I remember my grandparents telling me about the Beatles.  They were British, right?  LOL!  I actually remember . . . buying records!  And, record machines/phonographs/hi-fis/stereos!  Good times.  Simpler times, in many ways.

Hey!  We have a surprisingly new clue word today, in “knock”.  Our good buddy, ralis95, will have to add this to his world famous clue word database.  I’m surprised Mr. Hoyt hasn’t used it before.  The jumble for it wasn’t tough, but of course it was new too.  As was “fbetuf”.  Both “smurt” and “giroin” have been used before, and oddly enough, it took me a few looks to see “origin”.  The answer letter layout was well encrypted.  The answer did not jump off the page for me.

Great cartoon!  Wax Trax Records!  LOL!  I liked the guy’s Beatles’ haircut!  The album covers, showing the four heads, was a nicely subtle clue.  This Jumble might have thrown a few of you, for a bit.  But, it’s got a good beat, and you can dance to it!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  It’s the last day of Black History month, and I’ve hardly seen any mention of it!  What’s up with that?!!!  #FebruarySoWhite!  I apologize for not featuring it here on this blog.     YUR

Answer:  BANGUP JOB

(I apologize, to all who felt that I mislead them, in regards to yesterday’s answer.  I could have easily written “TIE” COBB, but I was trying to make a point about Pete Rose, and his penchant for placing the BET – multiple, actually – while still actively part of the game of baseball.  I realize there have been a few instances where I genuinely did not know the answer, and also a few instances where I made it kind of a game for you guys to give me the answer, but this was not one of those times.  Thank you for the numerous comments, giving me the answer, but that’s not what I was shooting for.  I was hoping to further the debate, of whether Pete Rose should, or shouldn’t, be forgiven for his offences, but it looks like I failed in that regard.

Today’s Jumble was much more cut and dry.  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles did come up as new.  We have seen “nepdu” before.  I thought “tagrye” was excellent!  I almost, but not quite, thought I might have to back into it.  The answer letter layout was another swell jumble.  The hyphen, in the answer spaces, and the excellent cartoon gave me the answer.  I can’t quite decide if George’s hair has already been cut, or if he’s up next!  It looks just a tad shaggier.  But, that could be just the way his turned out.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
