You want a papyrus trail for your vote on the billboards?

No, the Font is papyrus.

Ussually used by accupuncturist and anyone attempting to seem ethnic.

And, notably, the movie Avatar.

Hey, they paid someone a lot of money to produce a custom font, that is slightly different from papyrus

The font is definitely Papyrus, they just slightly modified it for the title. It's still basically Papyrus. I also believe the subtitles are unmodified Papyrus.

Other fonts you can't use without me having a Font Nerd aneurysm: Comic Sans MS (instant death), Peignot, and Bank Gothic, among others.

I have a particular loathing for Peignot (or any fonts that are a rip-off of it). I think it's almost as revolting as Comic Sans.

Have we seen this before on 1GM? Anyway, it's been all over the place already, but just in case:

Comic Sans is fine in a Garfield cartoon. anywhere else its pretty sad.

How sad that one of my favorite fonts is so hated. And no, I'm not a bunnies and shit type of person. I simply find the sans serif type of print much easier to read. I had no idea that fonts could be so controversial.

Are we sure this doesn't somehow have to do with Jewish culture??

And there was I, thinking it was something to do with baptism and the cleansing of sins.
