Truncks1: They'd probably get more hits from labeling cats than pushing retarded articles like this one. Prob never click a buzzfeed link again, ever. That was even more stupid than most fark trolls

WhyteRaven74: anfrind: I believe that font was called "Chicago".

Yep it was.


Chicago made a comeback on the first iPod, which like the original Macintosh had a monochrome display. 12-point bitmapped Chicago is designed to be legible with every other pixel removed so menu items could be "grayed out".

It's actually a case of Poe's Law. It's mocking the usual signs you see. They are in support of Gay Marriage as noted by their buttons. To quote Reedit "the SJC being the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts which found in favor of gay marriage."

St_Francis_P: JerseyTim: BuzzFeed is desperate to break some sort of scandal in order to legitimize their political site. They're throwing everything they have against the wall to get something to stick.

In their efforts to be legitimate, they're skating into Onion territory. Even the commenters tore Zeke a new one for this stupid article.


Zeke is a terrible reporter. He seems to just pass on every single "fact" he gets from a party operative, with no filter at all. He has a definite GOP slant too.

I disagree. An awesome response should've been no response at all. I'd like to think no one at the WH even knows what Buzzfeed is.

WhyteRaven74: Bloody William: font nerds weird me out.

It's not so much that they're font nerds as they are font snobs, and they tend to be worse than audiophiles and wine snobs.


Hey, it's an interesting subject, is all.

And for some reason typefaces have an unusual power to trigger pet peeves when they're a.) a little too distinctive and b.) used too much. LIKE FRIGGIN' MISTRAL, WHICH I NEVER WANT TO SEE USED EVER AGAIN.

Fark Mistral. Papyrus needs to be banned. All materials printed in Papyrus need to be destroyed. The creator of Papyrus, and anyone who thought it was a good idea, need to be neuralized to somewhere in their infancy, so they can be safely retaught at a Papyrus-free facility.

I'm not fond of Papyrus.

As a designer who doesn't get involved in type nerdgasms, all I can say is that it looks like the same typeface that's on assloads of vintage US postcards. I kind of wonder if this is a lame attempt by the GOP to reach out to hipsters... as though some twit is going to cream his girl jeans because "OMG! REPUBLICANS CARE ABOUT THE SAME TRIVIAL CRAP THAT I DO!".

If so, that's a terrible strategy - hipsters use & consume such things ironically. The GOP, by assuming the mantle of "taking such things seriously," would be, quite actually, cringe-worthy by those very hipsters. In other words, surprisingly, the GOP would once again miss the cultural boat.

I commented about the Whitehouse response, not buzzfeed.

they are clueless in that the only way to respond is to resort to a personal attack.

How about "never heard of that font before, next question" ?


Right, you'd be perfectly satisfied with an Obama staffer telling the public a lie.

Go on, pull the other one.

As a designer, I can honestly say that I give not a single fark about the epistemology of the type I use. It looks fine. The only reason anyone even noticed it is because it's not done in Arial or Helvetica.
