Messing with letters… Jobstinate?…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s random dictionary words are: optime, opobalsam, oppidan, operculum, opopanax, and wheeple.
Please have these words looked up and placed in suitable sentences ready for Professor Mouldie first thing after breakfast tomorrow morning. Should the professor have his tenor banjo with him he may require you to sing along.

A simple, but annoying puzzle involving the letter ‘J’.
Yes, it does look like a poem doesn’t it? But no, it isn’t one.
I call this the ‘Blocksmith Puzzle’ because its origin is in a keyboard error I once noticed I’d made typing the word ‘locksmith’.
It’s a nice word, blocksmith…

Some of the letter ‘J’s have been deliberately loosened from this page, please tip all these words into a small bag, give it a good shake, and then tip them out to see if order can spontaneously arise from chaos.
