I love font puns--I think this one's available on a shirt, now, too.

Hae you seen Timothy McSweeney's rant about Comic Sans?

Don said...

An original or did it originate elsewhere?

Becca said...

Isn't there a law against bad typography and font related puns?

If there isn't there should be. :p

Did the Italian Serif say, "I'ma mana peea my pantza!" when he got shot?

If a serif is shot, and it dies, does it become a seraph?

Patrick DiOrio said...

But I swear it was in sans serif's defence.

Wendy said...

So nerdy and adorable. Love it!

Taliesin said...

This is truly hilarious. One quick question - is this copyrightd or can we share the humour of it freely?
