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.

> 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.)

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.”

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 ;) ).
