Tired-Word Tuesday: ARTISAN

In the grocery store today, I found a package of “artisan lettuce.”  Apparently, this is a real thing.

Only certain things can be made by artisans… others, well, they just grow that way.  I’m sorry, but ARTISAN and PREMIUM are not the same word, last I checked.

Plus, what does this mean for the word ARTIST?  Must everybody artistic now be an artisan?  I don’t know if Ted wants to switch to producing artisanal paintings or pottery.

What word is driving you crazy today???
