    Artisans, not artists…..and certainly not turtles.

    Agreed. A lapsus linguae, or a “Fumble”, if you will.

    Right, Our comic artisan is indulging in the use of poetic license here, it seems.

    The header with the ice cream cones reminds me of an old strip in which Nancy bets two identical boys that they’re twins. “Ok, I’ll have vanilla,” says one. “I’ll have chocolate,” says the other.

    “Make mine strawberry,” says the third triplet, walking into the scene.

    I think the word “artisan” and it’s derivatives are generally misused and annoying and the marketing folks can drop them any time now.

    From “The New Oxford Dictionary of English”
    a worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand.
    -DERIVATIVES artisanal adjective
    -ORIGIN mid 16th cent.: from French, from Italian artigiano, based on Latin artitus, past participle of artire ‘instruct in the arts’, from ars, art- ‘art’

    Baking is a skilled trade so the sign, to be accurate should read: “TRY OUR NEW ARTISAN’S (or, maybe, ARTISANS’) PIZZAS

    @X X

    Either post of mine today, I copied from the original source. They’re not mine, just credit them properly.

    Artisan pizza means fair taste, but ridiculous price.

    @Logan Sackett

    The word “it’s” is misused since it is the contraction of “it is.” You meant “its.”
