Clue/Question:  They were able to steal the painting when the night watchman was . . .

Answer:  CAUGHT OFFGUARD

(This guy doesn’t seem very persistent!  Or, maybe he just forgot what he’s supposed to be doing.  Salvador Dali’s “The Persistence of Memory” is probably the most recognized work of Surrealistic art in the world.  It was painted in 1931, and has resided at the MoMa since 1934.  In 1954 Dali painted a variation of this and titled it “The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory”.  It kind of breaks down the original work into numerous segments.  This resides at the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, FL.  They’re both fascinating works, and they demonstrate Dali’s quirky genius.

I think the only clue word that I hesitated on was “outage”.  It, along with “driver” and “forged” are new to the ralis95 clue word database.  All the words were well jumbled, and the answer letter layout would have made it difficult to back in to any of the clue words.  Of course the cartoon is great.  This is one extremely well constructed Jumble.  The guys deserve kudos . . . for this masterpiece!  Be well, do good . . . and get yourself some class, friends.  Go visit an art museum.  It will broaden your horizons.)   —   YUR
