Skirmish at the Font Conference!

What happens when our favorite fonts become personified? We see who's all business (Times New Roman, obvs), who's a little less open to diversity (Arial), and we see crazy for what it is with Wingdings.

And seriously, watch out for when that riffraff Ransom crashes the party!

::dies:: I wasn't too impressed until Wingdings showed up. Wow! Also, "Get with the Times, New Roman" may be the best line ever.

That was wonderful! Sadly, I think the font-fan trait is genetic, and hereditary. My daughter and I both have it. She just sat with me watching this.

oh helvetica is a nice old lady that you know and love. Unfortunately there are 20 of her and you don't know which one is YOUR nice old lady and it causes so much cofusion and conflict. You have to watch out for her as she's not as nice as you want to believe ;-)

Maybe all the other fonts are jealous because Helvetica got it's own indie documentary last year ;)

Haaaaahaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Did I miss Helvetica?

Haha loved it. Funny Helvetica wasn't in there. Might have been a nice old lady. Rather horrified by the portrayal of Comic Sans as the hero though. I mean Comic Sans?! I would never use that. Trebuchet MS wasn't mentioned too. It's quite popular now.

I'd be Verdana- a bit big for my point size but easy to read ;-) Oh the font hi-larity! Too bad it is lost on 99% of your readers Geeksugar. I am loving it though :-D

Ha!!! You are so right macgirl. They should have just called us, we would have saved the day. Comic Sans is nobody's hero. Really!!! I could have played the part of Frutiger :)

I would use Font Nuke and Suitcase Fusion and get their asses all back in line. -this is for calamari ;-)

Comic Sans should definitely not be the superhero.

love thissss, don't exactly agree that Comic Sans should receive any attention except from 13 year old teenagers making their first neon smothered websites, but the characters really do match the fonts. Greatt!

not extremely funny but it put a smile on my face. people really are like fonts and as i stare at the font map on my wall i think i'm fitting right at home as stealth.
