Answer:  ONE PUPIL

( . . . and one iris, one cornea, one lens, one retina, etc. etc.!  Hoo-boy!  Talk about your stinky puns!  I loved it!  I really had to fight the not looking at the cartoon prior to the clue words urge today.  The giant eye(s) definitely are an attention grabber.  None of the clue words were new today, but all the jumblings of them were.  I really liked both “pillar” and “misuse”.  At first I didn’t notice the two Ls in “pillar” and I started to write the month of April.  I hate when I do that.  I thought it was funny that they used both “pylon” and “pillar” in the same set of clue words.  You don’t see that too often.  No complaints about the answer letter layout.  The cartoon did a great job setting up the gag.  I found the link to the Pearls Before Swine comic strip that McDuck brought up in the Comments.  I can’t imagine that Jeff or David would’ve objected to Pastis creating his own Jumble for that day’s strip.  It wasn’t at all insulting to the game, or them.  So, I’m going to post the link at the bottom of the related stories, for you guys to judge for yourself.  If Hoyt and Knurek don’t like it . . . well, they can lump it.  We have no agreement of any kind, and this is just republishing something already in the public realm.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
