Answer:  PRETTY PENNE

(I almost forgot to post this!   Supposedly, “convey” is a new clue word.  How ironic is it that we’re giving ralis95 new words right after he issues his most recent version of his world famous clue word database!  The only non-new jumble appears to be the one for “perch”.  I actually struggled to get “prone”.  The answer letter layout was a wonderful jumble.  And, the cartoon was a fine family portrait.  I hope this gag was just for the Jumble, and the food isn’t too expensive over there.  I’d love to go back to Italy some time.  I never had a bad meal there, and the prices were pretty reasonable, back then.  Be well and do good, friends.  Mangia!)   —   YUR

(We can’t help ourselves!  We are so complex that we occasionally have to contradict ourselves.  Some of us just seem to find more occasion to do so.  Just don’t be so hard on yourself.  Nobody’s perfect.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
