(Does this blog even reach groaners?  If you’re a fan of The Jumble you have to be a fan of puns.  Right???  None of today’s clue words are new, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I actually had to think for a minute to get “input”.  Ya never know!  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  Another fine jumble, that didn’t give anything away.  The whole set up in the cartoon’s dialog pretty much made it a no-brainer, for me.  I think the expression must originally come from horse racing.  I could be wrong, but it makes sense to me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
