Just in time for Super Bowl!

Don'tcha think they've got some Tostito craftsmen and women on standby for this momentous occasion??

Tell me sensei, who is this Arti-san of which they speak?

So its not so much the "artisan" part that ticks me off as much as every place has a chipotle something or other (I will say the restaurant chain by the same name not half bad, but I don't want to be bombarded with it everywhere else)

Do you realize that one of your blog ads today is for a PI attorney??

"One McArtisanal Value Meal please. With Diet Artisanal Coke."

My father was an artist. If the liver disease hadn't killed him faster, all this artisanal crap would have. He used to have a hissy fit every time he saw or heard the word used that way. He would cross the word out of magazines. Really.

I have decided to start practicing artisan inspired emergency medicine. Don't worry Dr. Grumpy I will still call neuro foracute strokes, but you will arrive to find the patient delightfully treated with a unique blend of fire roasted medications instead of the usual labetolol and TPA.

Each bite must be an artfully crunchy experience!

That's right up there with "Fresh Express Artisanal Salalds"!

Laughing out loud like a loon! Just when you think they can't possibly use the word on anything else, it pops up on tortilla chips...........hahahaha.

Dare I ask, but what's going to happen if diet coke becomes artisanal as well???

There is an epic revolution of artisan products!

At first I thought maybe your fukitol dose was too high but now I get your point lol

Heh, heh, heh! Saw a commercial the other day for Olive Garden featuring some "artisinal" something or other, then I read about artisinal pizzas in the NYT this morning - each made me think of you.

I'm not understanding how mass-produced or chain anything can be artisinal??

Dan said...

According to Google, the word "artisan" signals that a product was hand crafted, and these products frequently utilize traditional or indigenous methods.

Haha, false advertising?

I did find Artisan Popsicles today.

I love how the packaging has muted, soft colors as well, to somehow make you think the artisanal crap is healthy for you. ;-)

I do believe that seeing and hearing the word "artisan" has become your proverbial "nails scratching the chalkboard."

bogart said...

Humph. But not everything advertised as artisinal, isn't. Consider: http://www.artisanalpencilsharpening.com/

gardenqueen said...

Another advertiser trying to convince you that some mass-produced product was made just for you!
