Insanus is Latin for mad, insane, lunatic, bonkers, or as is particularly fitting in this case; cracked
. This Ser Jacopo is, indeed, shaped like a cracked pipe, a lengthy bent Apple whose stem has been bundled back together with bailing wire. Of course, it isn't really broken (and the "bailing wire" is actually silver wire), though they have gone to considerable lengths to make sure it certainly looks as if it was, down to drilling false draft holes on both faces of the "broken" shank. The design is even such that no trick drilling was necessary; you can look right down the shank straight into the bowl, and the pipe draws as perfectly as any other Ser Jacopo.
