Welcome to the 288th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second-hardest of the easiest MJM month of this year – where that leaves it overall is an exercise best left to the reader. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery clip. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday. Good luck!

Hint: The word that comes to mind: portmanteau.

Answer: Congrats to first-time winner @wforwumbo who knew what a portmanteau was and correctly identified the 11/27/96 "Down with Disease" (-> JJLC > SOAMule, Tweezer -> Sweet Emotion -> DWD), known by many as the "Diseezer." While it isn't the most popular year from a fan or MJM clip selection perspective, there are certainly some great jams / sets / shows across 1996, the year before Phish became a weapon of mass destruction. Come back Monday for MJM289, the hardest of the month.
