True Nature Revealed

You know how the lowercase letters "r" and "i" look like an "n" when they are placed side by side, especially in hand printing or sans serif type?

To illustrate: ri = n

So did you ever notice that when you write out the font name Arial it looks kind of like Anal? (With an extra stray dot floating above, I admit.)

Priceless,

I never noticed that - but the word "Anal" in your post above totally read as "Arial". (I shudder at the thought of something so unnatural as Arial Sex.)

Found on Mark Simonson's site.

The confusion here is, unfortunately, the sexiest thing about Arial.
