Answer:  PIECEMEAL

(I love this Jumble pun!  It really has a fresh feel to it.  Growing up, my family was into jigsaw puzzles, but would never think to combine playtime with mealtime.  Besides offending our general sensibilities, it just doesn’t look like a very practical endeavor.  But, the sight gag made for a grand Jumble.  We were even treated to TWO brand new clue words today, in “pooch” and “ripple”!  I kind of expected “pooch” to be new, but “ripple” kind of surprised me.  And, ALL of the jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a swell jumble as well.  Great, silly cartoon.  I can’t decide if the kid in the lower left is going to play his piece, or eat it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  It looks like a good number of people had trouble yesterday with GECKO and possibly the answer, UNDERTAKING, based on the stats.  Nice going, Hoyt.   —   YUR

    I totally agree, Unc Rave! Am I detecting a Friday meme of pizza? (Last Friday: “Give ‘Piece’ A Chance!”) I had to stare at the third word for a moment. Not just because of the frequent invocation of the LIPPER Average on ads for mutual funds, but because dictionary.com recognizes it as a word, for a small wave, almost synonymous with RIPPLE:

    I had a little bit of trouble with POOCH and a bit more with RIPPLE. The final answer occurred to me right away, but yes, it was a lovely pun.

    hal,

    Maybe the guys are “good Catholics”, and avoiding meat on Fridays during Lent! I’m also familiar with Lipper Analytical, but I had never seen the wave connection before. I’m betting it’s considered obscure.

    Vijay,

    Yes. Lovely!

    Dad looks like he’s ready to pop his piece into his mouth as well.

    I wrote down LIPPER first and then I realized it didn’t work with my answer.
