If this has already been posted I apologize but this is hysterical,
test your knowledge of chees vs. font names here:
This is so funny.
Oh Nancy, that quiz is so mid-September... ;-)
well, we're a little slow here, but it is funny.
Yup, funny and surprisingly difficult, to me anyway.
They need to do a little better research:
The example was Beaufort. I chose "font":
It's a floor wax and a dessert topping.
i think dberlow is right, it is a floor wax and dessert topping!
i do think its hysterical that fonts are perceived as names not even categories, however. (i'm pretty sure there were more than one goof-ball one in there but i opted to do the one that didn't keep score, just said right or wrong. so i'm a cheesey weenie.)
Shimmer is a floor wax, a dessert topping and a typeface.
WOW! Nick, you win (my husband had to explain this to me about a year ago).
Though I have long been a favorite of the Chevy Chase "Shimmer" bit.
