Montauk Monster Revealed! Maybe...but there's Papyrus

Thanks to Kirsten for finding this crazy-weird video of the Montauk Monster featuring Papyrus throughout as the font of choice for describing a hypothesis of the creatures identity. I don't really know what to say here. Although I want to say the font choice significantly discredits your argument, I'm thinking alongthe lines of "you just keep doin your thing".

Grow a Tree, with Papyrus!

Planet Organic - Aspen papyrus

Found in Planet Organic in Halifax, this looks like some sort of wacky tree-growing kit form the 60s that you'd find in the back pages of a comic book. But I'm always in for growing a tree out of a can.

Edible Arrangements Halifax Transit Papyrus

Edible Arrangements

The Halifax Papyrus bus can now be seen around the city, thanks to the ad space bought by Edible Arrangements. They're arrangements look delicious, though, so it's too bad their logo doesn't quite live up to the product.

Papyrus in Germany!

Papyrus in Germany

Where in the world is Papyrus Sandiago? Germany, thanks to Lance, putting Europe on the Papyrus map.

The Feng Shui Papyrusmobile refers to two URLs that at this point both point to The Internationale Feng Shui Akademie. Cool, Germany.

But lets look at this for a second. Probably not the best font for a URL on something like a car windshield. I'd expect there to be some readability issues. Plus, the URLs themselves are pretty bad...too long. And it should be as big as you can get it, the length of the window. I'd have gone with maybe, (if available, but if not then their odd hyphenated version wouldn't be the best choice either).

If you're interested in URLs I highly recommend you check out Good URL Bad URL for some insight and examples.
