No, don't empty your cache--you'll regret it, even if you're fed up with Super Duty!

Type irony is great -- although I may be worried that someone who's never seen Typophile before might get the wrong idea from it :-)

I would have done Papyrus myself, but I think anymore complaining and they'll put flashing random background/text colours in and screaming sounds.

Not only a readable typeface, but a great laugh.

Utterly brilliant.

This is very funny. Laugh out loud funny.

But at the same time - I am excited to see the post-cs choice.

Not super often. In fact it might be a long hard cs flavored winter around here now...

I love it! Can't stop laughing. Thank you Vince and Punchcut.

And I hate to say it but it is easier on the eyes than Super Duty.

One can't think of too many other fonts that need promotion less than CS. So was it indeed all that CS-bashing on this forum that brought this about?

In which case, maybe there's some profit in trashing, say Meta Serif? ;)

Oh. My. Gawd.

See, people? Careful what you ask for. ;-D

And now a request of my own -- shouldn't the bold weight be featured, since these are headers, after all? :-) [EDIT:] Oops. Someone beat me to that request already. Heh-heh.

I'd like to see an outline version. That's when, IMO, cs really looks its best.

I like it. Simple, yet understated. Love the hooks on the lowercase s!

Hey, Paul, that's a thought. Maybe there should be a People's Choice Award for typefaces (wait, make that fonts). :-D

I don't use it, but that is strictly a personal preference, not some objective truth. I'm not against any font, they are what you make of them…

This makes me think life would be better if I went around assuming everyone was using comic sans ironically.

Also, my self-reviling hipster heart just brimmed a little. : )

OK, that was funny... but eventually you're going to stop laughing, and then you'll want to get rid of it.

Imagine if the flash titler supported animating multiple master fonts. There's a few interesting ones out there!

Mikey,
To each his own. As an aspiring graphic designer, you should be very careful how and when you use it.

Personally, I agree with Ray Larabie.(edit: Not Ray, I meant David Combs!)
