imaginative poets could construct a poem about a wrestler's ARTY CHOKES in the ring and an artichoke treat awaiting him in the dressing room.

There was a young wrestler called Arty
Who always just wanted to party
Whilst dancing in Stoke
He ate Artichoke
And now them call him Arty F*&!y

too late to enter the comp but i've found an artichoke cocktail for those seeking further poetic inspiration :

At the Artesian cocktail bar at the Langham Hotel’s London location, the Perpetual Motion cocktail is aged in a shaking barrel, and then served in a constantly moving glass. Ingredients include Facundo Eximo rum, Martini Ambrato and Rubino, artichoke, and “motion”
