Insert nun pun

I was in the pigment and art supply shop Cornellisen's the other day and overheard a party of nuns accusing the shop of supplying inferior, or possibly even false, Naple's yellow. I suppose it shouldn't be surprising that Catholic nuns would be expert in the consistency and properties of pigments, especially that of Naples yellow, but it was pretty funny. They were belligerent...

It's still a great shop, if a little stuffy.
