When I was a kid, my favorite morning activity was to sit down at breakfast with my dad and read “the funnies”… otherwise known as, the comics section of the newspaper. Something about starting the morning off with a chuckle always seemed to set the day off on the right foot. With that in mind, below is a font-related funny from one of my favorite publications, the Onion.
Although the majority of the article is satiric, the author does include a reference to a real-life person who played an important role in the history of typography. If you recognize the reference, post this person’s contribution to typography in the comment section to prove you are a font trivia god/godess.
