well, i was excited once about bebas neue
I'd really be more comfortable if they specified which hole, or at least specified their handwashing policy.
"we check your butt cheeks, THEN your mouth hole. no handwashing available, sorry"
Phew! That's a load off my mind.
I thought that was a really weird coupon when they first printed it but, after a few trips, I'm starting to get it…
Sorry we used it on our sports-gym reality TV show last night…
A moment of silence for those who swore by Impact before it became "that meme font"
I had the opposite problem a while back. I had this favorite font that I used everywhere, and it suddenly got super unpopular and then when people found out I liked it they tarred and feathered me and banned me from the internet. Yep, definitely regret admitting my love of Comic Sans.
It's so fun and lighthearted. Though I guess it's a fair critique to say that Comic Sans isn't serious enough for the serious and business-like nature of the internet.
That's why I always stick with Papyrus. They used to advertise the movie Avatar, and it was a big hit!
It's the most famous font created by Comic Horatio Sanz.
Last time I went to the doctor his rubber gloves had the same font as TOS Star Trek. Now every time I see William Shatner I turn my head and cough.

"Shoulda stuck with wingdings"
You'll be receiving a cease and desist letter on behalf of my design company, Shoulda Stuck With Wingdings ® ™
Ah yes, my own personal font, as I like to call it.
Too bad no one else can read it…
Always a bad idea to use the first selection from the font pull-down.
I sometimes wonder if this is similar to when you buy a new car, then it suddenly seems as if you see that car EVERYWHERE when you hadn't noticed it much before.
Somebody gave that idea a big fancy name:
If there is a better source than Chainsawsuit for font-related comedy anywhere else on the Internet, I don't want to hear about it because that's impossible.
It's a font of comedies, AND a comedy of fonts!
Ouch! The proctologist should be using a more rounded font. Chumbly gives off a soft, squishy vibe.
I lost it at "cheek and hole evaluation"!
Look at all the pretty colors today (am I wasted?)! I'm imagining "chainsawsuit" eventually falling down behind the strip with all the other crap that has fallen back there, never to be seen again. I like it.
liking the "DRUGS" graphic a but too much, eh, Linda?
I like the way Crub thinks!
…I both love and hate my brain sometimes
I didn't realize the realtor was named "Crub" so I thought for a moment that you were giving Kris a new nickname. Would work better with a K though. Kr[is Stra]ub. I like it!
Hey, nobody's using Papyrus! Yes! Now I'll be taken seriously!
My sixteen-year-old self said exactly those words when he made his first vanity website (nowadays I suppose they're called "blogs").
his is the most hipster-nerd thing i have ever fuckin seen. I love it.
Raise your hand if you squinted to read the text on the monitor.
Is his name "Fresh Salmon"?
French Solomon. Well, at least that's what I got. How "french" is French?
"Bebas neue"? More like bebas olde, amirite?
This exact thing happened to me after I started using Badaboom.
This happened to me in school with Archer years back. Now it's Wells Fargo, Quaker Oatmeal, all over billboards… I feel ya, Kris.
This is closely related to the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon
I never knew this was a thing until I read your post. And would you believe it, I've heard about it like 4 times today! WEIRD
I'd like more elaboration on what "Keepin' It French" means.
I really want to see more Matt Crub, of Matt Crub Realty.
Wasn't that font the hipster version of Fette Engschrift to begin with? ;)
What seems like ubiquity can also simply be similarity in type. In Bebas Neue's case, you might be mistaking the onese you see for its antecedent, DIN (which dates back to the early 20th century), or for its contemporary Oswald, etc..
I had a short-lived fling with Raleway, that floozy
