A kid was often confused,
When setting his p's and his q's
He was very keen on qleasing the pueen
Who wasn't entirely amused!

I don't don't watch adds really, but the one in the bottom middle called Legal Copy really made me laugh. And it has type in it!

Not bad, but type jokes are rare so I'll take what I can get.

Gerry and Klimis walk into a Packed bar in Warsaw and order Gin and Monotonic. Adam Twardoch is in a nearby booth amorously involved with a young lady. Their mutual flirtations become vocal and obvious enough that everyone in the bar is complaining to the bartender. The bartender says something in Polish to the passionate couple. Everyone in the bar cheers. Gerry and Klimis don’t understand Polish so they ask the bartender what he said. The bartender replies, I just said to them “Oh go neck in the park!”

Back in spite of popular demand:

Optima walks into a bar and says "Tino sent me."
Bartender says, "Any Palatino is a pal 'o mine!"

And as long as we're on the "walks into a bar" genre, there's also my pangram version.

As opposed to the un-funny type?

How do you get a web designer off of your front porch?

Pay for your pizza!

A spectacle of baldy matched Romance:
A Serif that made out with a Sans.

One more:

Make sure to type sorts squarely in the face,
To ease the lockup of a strenuous chase.

Someone else: “It's not the font, but how you use it that counts.”
Me: “Meh. That’s just something people with small fonts say.”

Oops, that should've been:
Make sure to HIT the TYPE squarely in the face,
To ease the lockup of a strenuous chase.

Two periods were crossing a road. One got run over by a car. The other one turned around and said: "comma!" ;p

A type designer was feverishly designing a new font. He had been ignoring natures call as long as he could hold it off. Just as he finished the "O" ran to the bathroom to relieve his overfilled bladder. When he was almost finished, he stopped and ran back to his computer saying, "I have got to go make a P!"

Since we're now posting video links, here's the most elaborate type joke ever.

Client: “The ‘V’ is too pointy. Can we get a ‘V’ that isn’t pointy?”

Me: “An un-pointy ‘V’ may start to look like a ‘U’…”

Client: “We don’t want a ‘U’. We want a ‘V’ that doesn’t have a point.”

This sketch from xkcd is not really about fonts, but they are honorably mentioned:
