The Papyrus Virus

Welcome to The Papyrus Virus!

Franz Lemon Snaps & Vanilla Wafers - Now with 100% more Papyrus!Welcome to the new Naked Loon blog: The Papyrus Virus.

If you haven’t noticed any Papyrus typeface today, you probably haven’t been looking. The font covers the country and our beloved Puget Sound like a plague.

This blog will document, catalog, and attempt to stamp out via ruthless mockery the growing virus that is the Papyrus font. We’ll be highlighting our own spottings of the omni-present lettering, but we are also happy to receive user submissions as well. Just send pictures to jones %at% nakedloon %dot% com

So let’s jump right into the Papyrus ridicule, shall we?

Pictured at right is a pair of cookie products we spotted at a local Top Food and Drug outlet. These Franz Lemon Snaps and Vanilla wafers are lousy with Papyrus. I really think the usage of Papyrus makes these cookies super-classy, don’t you?

I mean, what about “written on ancient parchment” doesn’t say “delicious snack” to you?

  1. I know exactly where this plague started!!! This is no joke either. I had some early involvement with the signage and so am an expert on the subject. It all started at “IslandWood” some 8 or 9 years ago! Plenty of time for the virus to spread all over the Puget Sound area! “IslandWood” is a wildlife preserve/sanctuary/educational institute on Bainbridge Island. Only extremely rich kids can go there or extremely poor kids that receive one week scholarships. (The originators of “Spread the Wealth”, and Obama thinks he started it) The extremely poor kids are subsidized by the extremely rich but neither group ever attend at the same time. Plus it is a huge write off for those filthy rich parents. Careful, you will be confronted with the Papyrus Virus immediately. Check it out:

  2. How is papyrus any worse than lithos, for pete’s sakes?
