Sometimes A Font Will Do

Greetings from Philadelphia, home of the founding of humidity, the cheesesteak, and where, as contrasted against the wee state to the south, everything is named after Ben Franklin instead of DuPont. I’ll be on the road for the next couple of weeks, and will try to post some brief dispatches.

Ack! That would make me twitch too. I used Papyrus back in the day… like in the 1990s. *shudder* I saw a website the other day that used Papyrus as the main font and thought of you as I closed the browser :D

And can we add “comic' to the list of fonts that make a person cringe?

Water Ice. Scrapple. The inability of buy beer on Sundays. What other mid-Atlantic treats am I missing?

You know about the mouse-over text on the xkcd comic's right? They're often the cherry-on-top.
