Answer:  LOAFING

(From the Jumble Archives!!!  Okay.  I think we all can agree that  anyone who has been doing the Jumble, for a minimum of five years, has probably seen this gag before, in one form or another.  It’s a good gag though.  I have no complaints.  Well, I do have one, but it’s not about the overall Jumble.  It’s the clue word “uncap”.  All the “un” words are a little cheap, in my opinion.  They’re like adding an S to a word, or a D for a word that normally ends in E.  And, since I don’t like ’em, I don’t look for ’em!  I really liked the jumble for “factor” though.  It took a few seconds to get that.  None of the clue words are new, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was not obvious, at all.  But, the answer itself was very apparent.  Cute cartoon.  I like the slacker’s hairnet hanging from the bread rack.  And of course the kid is putzing around with his cell phone!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
