TULEF  =  FLUTE,  VAEEW  =  WEAVE,  HEPNYH  =  HYPHEN,  TECEDT  =  DETECT   —   Giving us:  FTEWAEHHEDTC

Clue/Question:  They sat together with a bowl of pork rinds and – – –

South Park's Cheesy Poofs exist, at least temporarily

Answer:  CHEWED THE FAT

(Crunchy fat that is!  I don’t eat them regularly, but I do like me some pork rinds!  Especially the barbecue flavored ones.  Or, the spicy hot ones.  Plain are okay too, but I prefer them with a little zing to them.  They go great with beer!  Just like potato chips, pretzels, peanuts, corn chips, and of course Cheesy Poofs!  Yeah, I can’t imagine pork rinds – deep fried pork fat – being too good for the old ticker.

We have seen all of today’s clue words in previous Jumbles, and they’re all on the ralis95 clue word database.  All four of the jumbles appear to be new though.  I saw them all immediately.  The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble.  Deliciously cryptic!  But I got the final answer quickly.

I have no idea who the guys are in this cartoon.  Famous ex somebodies from the Midwest, I guess.  I know it’s not, but the balding guy reminds me of Teller, of Penn and Teller.  So, that’s why I’m giving you the picture of him.  I’m sure the all knowing Jumble Historian will chime in with who Jeff was drawing, and the connection to barbecuing and pork rinds.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The chef who wouldn’t try food prepared by other chefs was – – –

Answer:  FULL OF HIMSELF

(A good stinky pun!  When I was a teenager I liked to bake, so I could be full of myself!  Usually chocolate chip cookies, but sometimes brownies, or chocolate mayonnaise cake.  When I first heard of chocolate mayonnaise cake, I thought:  Gross!  Why would anyone put mayonnaise in a cake???  But as it turns out, it makes for an incredibly moist and delicious cake!  Have you read those articles that say that “moist” is somehow an objectionable word now?  How frigging stupid is that!  It’s like the clearly adult women who object to being called “Ma’am”.  If you’re not a teenager, and you’re either wearing a wedding ring, or you’re toting a kid or two, or three, then you are most definitely NOT a  Miss anymore.  It doesn’t mean you are old, it just means you’re not a kid anymore.  So, get over it.

Clue words?  Yeah, there were four of them.  None were new, but all the jumbles appear to be.  We haven’t seen “tariff” in a while.  The answer letter layout was pretty good, but I would have switched the order of both the five letter and six letter words.  You’ve seen that thing that says if a word starts and ends with the correct letters then the inbetweens can be out of order, and your brain will still figure it out?  Well, I think the same thing applies to short phrases like this.  LLMFLEIFFSHOU would have been more of a challenge.  I hope Hoyt is taking notes!  LOL!  Great cartoon.  The young cook looks so earnest, while the old chef has such a look of contempt.  The guy’s gotta get over himself.  A fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
