This Yankee Candle advertisement caught my eye last night while I was shopping at Meijer. It brought to my mind an alternative meaning of the word tart. Tart - Noun - A prostitute or promiscuous woman.
The article the
is the key to this interpretation. The
indicates that a noun will follow. Not tart
but the tart
. The art of the prostitute
doesn't seem like a great slogan for selling candles. If one takes the registration mark in the subtext to be a possessive apostrophe, this interpretation get even more unfortunate.
