Answer:  SUNDAE PAPER

(Some people actually don’t like ice cream!  It’s hard to believe, I know, but it’s true.  And, I’m not even talking about the lactose-intolerant folk.  These people just don’t like it!  I know most Filipinos are not big American sweets fans.  I once attended this beautifully catered 50th birthday celebration for this Filipina friend, and she had these outrageous chocolate souffles for dessert.  They are very labor intensive, and they have to be served pretty much right out of the oven.  They are so rich and delicious . . . and satisfying.  After wolfing mine down, in about 2 minutes, I looked around the table and saw some with one spoonful taken, and others completely . . . untouched.  I was thinking:  What the heck is wrong with you people?!?!  These are friggin’ awesome!  I ended up having two and a half more.  The half had been my wife’s.  This was just a few years ago.  Had I been in my twenties I probably would have eaten ten of them, easily.  They were that good.  I felt so bad when I saw the wait staff clearing all the uneaten souffles from the tables.  It was like watching a pod of beached whales.  You want to save them, but there’s only so much a man can do!  What a waste!  I told my daughter about it and she cried.

Hey, guess what, Jumble fans?  We had two new clue words today!  Both “seedy” and “shrunk” are not on my most recent copy of the ralis95 clue word database.  I thought that “plump” was ridiculously easy to get, but I liked the jumbling of “agenda”.  The answer letter layout was beautifully cryptic.  No giveaways there.  Great Knurek cnartoon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
