What's with everything being 'artisanal' or 'artisan'?

EVERYTHING. From the little beady things old ladies (me) hang their glasses around their necks on to bread.

Saw a logo a couple months ago. Through the unfortunate use of smaller and larger font sizes, instead of artisanal cheese, it said Art is Anal Cheese.

Depending on the art, I suppose that's rather apt.

Dang! I had to read most of these at least twice to get them. Once I did, I had to tip my cap to you. Well done.

Adam: Just doing my part to make them make sense.....

Donna: I cackle with Satanic glee!

Ami: Ads overuse anything that seems trendy. That's why things become clich├ęs so fast. I bet the person who chose those font sizes was a corporate peon who decided to do a little subversion.

Professor: Thanks! There's more where those came from -- see the links at the bottom.
