A Now For Something Completely Useless

Monday Cartoon Day.

Niche market (neesh markit) noun

A special section of the audience a cartoonist can aim his cartoons at. Usually it is a subject or an area no other cartoonist has ever tried tor each before, usually because no one is interested.

I note that the cartoonist here indicates the final phoneme of “verbosity” and of “apothecary” with ‘ĭ’, id est as /ɪ/. In fact, by the time of these cartoons, only a few pretentious lexicographers were doing that; the prevailing sound had long been /i/ (‘ē’).
