Font Jokes

I had a conversation this week about different typesets, and how interesting they are, and as such, thought what better a topic for this week’s one liners than Font Jokes? Don’t expect them to be too funny or original… …and if you are interested in the history of fonts – it’s much more interesting than you might think – then here’s a great book on the topic, definitely recommended:




Times New Roman and Arial walk into a bar. The barman says “we don’t serve your type here”.


A friend’s son was baptised Comic Sans. The vicar used the wrong font.


What did one font say to the other on the beach? “Serif’s up!”


I was going to insult someone using paragraph formatting tools. It would have been entirely justified.


My problem with Comic Sans is that it’s just not my type.

In which font are horoscopes written? Futura.


I would make a font joke but I’m not bold enough.


I was asked for advice on a font for a launch campaign. I suggested Trebuchet.
