I have not yet read all of the above, but here’s one: What is the type designer’s favorate breakfast? — Soren O
cheerios? oh, no! alphabits!!!
Kern ﬂakes! — Soren O
ha! (and every time I ladle some alphabet soup into my bowl, I think Vag Rounded!) Coming Soon: fat-free breakfast treat, Sans Serifs!
Can you stand more? The em and en discussion was teasing at me… near my old oﬃce was a chain of sandwich shops, Em’s Subs… Do you think the diﬀerence between a 6” and a 12” sub is similar to that between an en and an em? Alright, I’m oﬀ the deep end now…
One for the old school: Q: How many typesetters does it take to change a light bulb? A: One, but be sure to specify how tight you want it.
Did you hear about the embarrasing date that the young R had with the cute letter from Carmina? He got his tongue stuck in her bracket while she was stroking his stem. But in the end there was a crossbar in the terminal, so at least he got some tail.
I thought I saw a good one on typographer.com quite some time ago but I can’t remember how it goes… Mr. Earls???
> What is the type designer’s favorate > breakfast? Another answer: M N X (Ham and eggs) The full, even cornier version: F U N E M? S, V F M. F U N E X? S, V F X. O K. L F M N X. (Have you any ham? Yes, we have ham. Have you any eggs? Yes, we have eggs. OK. I’ll have ham and eggs.)
Tracy, get with the Times. That only happens in Georgia nowadays.
I got into a ﬁght with a type designer once. I was counterpunch drunk for hours. My hair was a mess, my cap height was all wrong, the blood had to be swashed oﬀ with gentle strokes into a bowl, and I had to stem my cursing on the way out of the bar, tail between my legs, nursing my arm. The post from Typographer.com, as requested above: Type Oddity — World’s ﬁrst typographic joke discovered A mystery man from AMX Studios (London, UK), who does not want to be identiﬁed, passed on what might well be the world’s ﬁrst (and worst) typography joke. Here goes… “Two fonts walk into a bar, the bartender says ‘we don’t serve your type here’. So they called the serif.” Posted on Friday, January 26, 2001
>Tracy, get with the Times. Isn’t that what Stanley said to Walter? — K.
Ha! Wasn’t there one about the blond working quality control in an M & M factory… getting rid of all the w’s ?
This thread is unbelievable. You guyz on drugs or what? There’s some pretty funny ones though. Well, to 0,0001% of the world population, to answer your question Seanmichael (just a rough estimate ;) ).
So I guess that means some of the people here dont even think its funny. Thanks for your jokes everyone. I actually went to bed laughing. -smc
