I never do this ... but there's a first for everything

I hope you'll forgive me for wussing out on writing today and posting a video instead.

But as a newspaper person for a zillion years -- one who works with words and type fonts -- this made me laugh.

I'm still cleaning Diet Coke with lime out of my keyboard.



Tomorrow? I promise. Real words from the inner workings of Janet's brain.

I am just enough of a font dork to think that was HYSTERICAL! "Open mailbox." Ha!

Newspaper humor! Cool. Sorta gives special meaning to the phrase "gallows humor".

I'll be the only one in the crowd to say... I didn't get the humor. Yep. I'm a real riot at a party when hubby has to explain jokes to me. *sigh* But it IS great to be back and catching up on your posts. My goal is to try and get you in my google reader today. Why why why won't it let me 'add' your blog!!

Pure brilliance.

That was hilarious! I had to stop and "rewind" a couple of times so I could catch the nameplates for each of the characters, but it was worth it. I always liked good ol' Comic Sans.

Jenni said...

BTW, I saw this one on someone else's blog yesterday. Gave me a good laugh! (Superhero related, but no fonts)
