^I've searched that image and the only thing I get is people poking fun at it -in much the same way it pokes fun at something....

Thing is: I haven't got the faintest idea just exactly what that something is

^ Thanks! - didn't help me understand what's going on (didn't that sword come from a stone or an anvil or something? -or is that just a Disenyism or a Pratchettism?) -but always nice to see something from those guys

Did give me something to google though.

AND which writing to use for capitalization! some of those are cursive (the G) and some aren't (most, if not all, of the rest -they definitely aren't the capitals I was taught back in the seventies).

Re: All I Got Left is My THREAD BOMBS!

On exactly that note, I've recently read the new Hawkeye Marvel comic series from Matt Fraction, and as brilliant as it is, I can never quite get past the font used in the speech bubbles, which makes Clint's name look a little too much like the above cloud writing.

Fraction attempting to amuse his readers further, or just poor font choice?


Hugo - flipping and flopping on that
