You know, with these 9/11 commemorative objects, there's tacky, there's stupid, and then there's the completely inexplicable. Like this font family inspired by the World Trade Center wreckage. Why does this even exist?

"Stupid"? It's got kitty cats!
As wrote today: "Cats...what's not to love?"

Actually I would have liked a variation on the old "hang in there, baby!" poster better.

That's supposed to say "as jima wrote" above. Hey tech support for The greater-than and less-thans were in the preview, but they went away (along with the "jima" text inside) in the post. I did use the HTML entities, too.

How's that for you? Those Qrazy Quebeqois want $40 (US) for their stupid fonts.

How do you find this stuff, anyway? Is Sister finding this stuff for you?

and I thought the 9/11 made for TV movie was tacky!
and yes they ARE showing it here in Australia this week.
ug, I don't think I'll be turing my TV on all week.

How did you make the distinction between "tacky" and "stupid"?

matthew @ 09/06/2002 05:20 PM CST

I used a slide rule.

You have a truly rarefied and exponential sensibility.

Would you like an original 1971 Hang in there Baby poster by Victor Baldwin. In mint condition just waiting 30 years for you to ask.
