Answer:  PIZZA(of) HIS MIND

(I’m thinking that some editor decided to add the “of” to today’s answer.  Someone just doesn’t get the joke, as it is completely unnecessary.  We actually have a new clue word today, in “putrid”.    And, what a great word it is!  I hope ralis95 is reading today’s spoiler . . . as well as his emails.  We’ve seen the jumble for “handy” before, but the others are new.  The answer letter layout was a fine jumble as well.  I remember all the pizza in Italy being sold in little squares!  A little different, but good stuff.  I think Jeff is showing his Mid-West bias, with the ugly American being a fat bald Yankee fan!  No skin off my nose, as I am – as most of you know – a Mets fan!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I worked the puzzle coming up with “turpid” instead of “putrid”. I had always thought that there was only one word that would answer a Jumble. This was a first for me. I solved the answer, but couldn’t understand why I didn’t have the P.

    I see some online listings for “turpid”, and they have it linked to “turpitude”. But, neither the OED or Webster’s has a listing for it. My trusty hardbound Merriam Webster’s Collegiate also has no listing for the word. I think Hoyt is safe with “putrid”.

    Well, heck. First, I thought today was yesterday and when I finished this puzzler and that I was caught up.

    Then, I thought exactly the same thing as you did Unc…someone messed with the puzzler because Pizza of His Mind just wasn’t right! Great puzzler though!!

    I’m just hoping that our traveling friends didn’t really experience an obnoxious american like this in Italy. I’ve seen it first hand though. Yelling at the wait staff, literally throwing a coffee cup across the room. UGH!
