Answer:  SPOILED ROTTEN

(Too many people today do not understand the have/keep concept, so the old expression does not resonate with them.  There are no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles seem to be new.  I know we’ve seen “nixto” before.  I was able to see all the clue words immediately.  I think switching the order of the clue words would have made for a more challenging answer letter layout.  Especially the two six-letter words.  SPLD is very close to SPOILED.  The cartoon did a good job of setting up the gag.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
