Strip by: Colin Foster

Ambrose: Do you think we can put on this expensive Philip Glass piece?
Oliver: Sorry. We're baroque.

The author writes:

I wrote this not knowing if "Baroque" was pronounced "ba-roke" or "ba-rock." According to Wiktionary, it can go either way, though it seems that most people prefer "ba-rock" and think that "ba-roke" is an American mispronunciation.

First "saving green" and now this. How many Americanisms can I stumble upon?
