Clue/Question:  The zombie was such a good archer because his aim was . . .

(The guys are riding this . . . The Walking Dead . . . horse . . . to death!  It really seems to be their go to genre.  It works.  There are so many phrases and idioms that use the words “dead” and “death”.  The idea of zombies is just so amusing.  But, maybe more amusing is how many people seem to take the idea seriously.  Some people just love to be scared and grossed out.  They thrive on the adrenaline rush that it gives them.  I guess it’s a decent form of escapism.

No new clue words today.  The jumblings were decent, but not terribly challenging.  Short answers kind of make the answer letter layout irrelevant.  But, it’s a cute cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Business deals of the old west!

TOONIN  =  NOTION,  WODRAC  =  COWARD,  GJOREG  =  JOGGER,  VOREEM  =  REMOVE,  LOBUDE  =  DOUBLE,  PTIDEP  =  TIPPED   —   Giving us:  NINCOAOGMODOBTI

Clue/Question:  The merger of the two safe companies was this.

Answer:  A GOOD COMBINATION

(Nice long answer.  Great answer letter layout.  There was a decent level of difficulty in solving today’s Jumble.  I breezed through all of the clue words, though they were all well jumbled.  I really liked the jumblings of “notion” and “coward”.  No new clue words, today.  Not sure why this merger is taking place in the ol’ west.  Does anybody know if Jeff was going for something specific?  Or, did he just feel like drawing horsies and cowboy hats??  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
