Good one.

Although I had to read it twice to catch the pun. Kinda surprised that I missed it in the first pass, did someone slip me decaf this morning?

We’ll call this masterpiece ‘Art’. It’s only fitting we name it after the artist who created it.

The lengths some artists will go to for their portraits is commendable.

After stealing the bike, the crook took it to his fence*. Things did not go as planned as he seemed to mix up his definitions.

*1.

a barrier, railing, or other upright structure, typically of wood or wire, enclosing an area of ground to mark a boundary, control access, or prevent escape.

synonyms:barrier, fencing, enclosure, barricade, stockade, palisade, fenceline; railing "a gap in the fence"

*2. informal

deal in (stolen goods). "after stealing your ring, he didn't even know how to fence it"

Mike's dreams of becoming an Olympic athlete were crushed when he couldn't commit to either cycling or fencing!
