Visual Description:  Just a little gallows humor, today.

KRCTU  =  TRUCK,  UNPDE  =  UPEND,  TOCIPE  =  POETIC,  BUDRAS  =  ABSURD   —   Giving us:  TUKENETIARD

Clue/Question:  The job at the funeral home came with more responsibility and he was anxious to . . .

Answer:  UNDERTAKE IT

(Very good!  Nice and long, and clever.  I didn’t struggle too long with the answer, because I employed the ralis95 method of laying out the answer letters by groups of consonants and vowels.  Initially, I thought the first word was going to end in ED, but for some reason the N, D and R kind of stood out, and then I noticed the U.  That’s when I thought of an undertaker.  They don’t really use that word much anymore.  Not unless your a 6 foot 10 inch scary looking wrestler with the WWE, that is!  Nowadays they’re all funeral directors!

No new clue words, today.  I bet “upend” gave some of you some trouble.  This time I was able to get “poetic” without too much trouble, and “absurd” is one of my all-time favorite words.  I really appreciated the standard answer letter layout.  I might not have gotten the answer without playing the ralis95 way!  Great cartoon!  I love the boss’s sunken looking eyes, and the coffin desk with the handles.  The flowers were a nice touch, too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
