Thanks to George Takei on Facebook (who apparently has one of the most followed FB pages in the world: yes, that’s right, Mr Sulu re-inventing himself in his old age) this hilarious Hallmark moment has been doing the rounds on various bits of the three wubbleyoose.
But the world of type, and especially of type kerning (that’s how much of a gap you leave – or don’t leave – between the letters) has many more delightful examples to entertain us. Try this:
Just think, someone looked at that in the cold, grey light of dawn and OKayed it.
Sometimes, it’s the design of the type.
We think we’ve eaten a few of those.
But our favourites are always those where the use of type really, really, REALLY produces something people just wouldn’t say. Which is why this is our FInal example.
All other examples, as always, gratefully received. And thank you, David O, for the first one.
