Sarcasm Font

December 11, 2009

There is a little bit of a story behind today’s post that I first have to explain. I think you’ll enjoy the explanation. A couple of days ago I got a note from a loyal reader. It was just another forwarded joke with the request that I satisfy #4. So I guess I better include the joke so that we all know about #4.

20 Individual Thoughts
  1. I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
  2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.
  3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.
  4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.
  5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
  6. Was learning cursive really necessary?
  7. MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
  8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
  9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.
  10. Bad decisions make good stories.
  11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
  12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after BluRay? I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again.
  13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
  14. “Do not machine wash or tumble dry” means I will never wash this — ever…
  15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What’d you do after I didn’t answer? Drop the phone and run away?
  16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
  17. I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
  18. My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day “Dad what would happen if you ran over a ninja?” How the hell do I respond to that?
  19. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
  20. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.

Now that you have hopefully gotten a chuckle and you understand the reference to #4, I’ll direct you to the Official site of the Sarcastic Font movement. There you can even download Arial Sarcastic. Admittedly it isn’t the most interesting font I’ve ever seen, but it came with a great story.

    Fonts have to be downloaded and supported separately on every system that views the text. Punctuate your sarcasm with a mark that’s already part of unicode and requires no special support: ¡

    The sarcastic font page is 404-compliant.

    Anyone got a mirror?
