tweeted by @Typophile — “And a big thanks to our favorite couple Clarendon.”

For better or worse I'll take credit for the Clarendon joke.

One of the better ones I’ve heard in a while.

I hear Clare and Don terminated their relationship. Clare ran off to Memphis.

Really? Memphis? I thought she was Egyptienne.

Actually, Memphis was the name of an ancient city in Egypt! Isn't that ionic!

dezcom's picture

It may be ionic but it isn't corinthian ;-)

bobdigi's picture

Wow, I need to brush up on my City studies or I'll keep making the same mistakes. This time it was Egyptian, next time's Roman!

dezcom's picture

That's New.

Please tell me I’m not the only one that got the Chicago (typeface/city) reference…

Chicagoerfonts?

Anyway, shouldn't it be something like:
- "Hamburger."
- "Do you want fonts with it?"

Is that what they meant with the word 'hamburgefonstiv' having had an impact?

Reminding me... In the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion there is much talk about something called the Second Impact. So Who the F* redrew Impact?

Go to the xkcd comic and rollover the guy’s head.

It’s funny because it’s true. You know who you are…

And before I’ve had my 1st cup of coffee. That’s just mean. Not sure if its in here somewhere, but this made me think of xkcd’s kerning cartoon.
