Holy fonts does this guy ever love Brenda

This is just unreal. Yes I know what you're all waiting for, if you haven't spotted it already look at the top left Brenda. Man, did this guy just open up Microsoft Word and take the whole fonts menu with him? Thanks to Andrew for sending this in. Not our first Papyrus tattoo either.

See any more?

Penhorn Plaza in Dartmouth

Even driving in a car on the highway I spotted this Papyrus sign from hundreds of feet away.

The Penhorn Plaza in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia recently changed their name from Penhorn Mall and got a fancy new sign, too. Who keeps getting paid to do this stuff? I'm assuming for not very much money.

Our friend and avid Papyrus Watcher David G. came across this webcomic. Interestingly, he says

...called "Hi to Tsuki to Hoshi no Tama" (Japanese for "Jewels of the Sun and the Moon and the Stars" -- though the title is in Roman letters, not in Japanese)...
And yeah, all even the dialog is in Papyrus. Too far. They really look like ancient Egyptians to me...

Sel Marin Gris, en Papyrus!

Krishna sends us this pic of some Parisian grey sea salt, apparently expensive in Canada. I can see that. And also grey salt? So they're bleaching my salt, too? Man...

PS: Check out my French, pretty sure "en" means "in".

PPS: I don't even use salt for anything, take that Salt Association!

Papyrus Recycles

Ha! I can see how Chris would find this an embarrassment, but I don't live there, so I kind of think it's pretty funny. Nothing says Earthy like recycling to the font of Papyrus. Someone at town hall got excited over this font find for sure.

Papyrus invades Vegas

I'm betting there's more (ha!) but this is the first we've got from Las Vegas, town square, of "francesca's collections", sent in by Nate. Sounds familiar...Montreal? A completely different Francesca's?

Papyrus at Blimpies

Rhonda snapped this Papyrus sighting at Blimpies. We don't have these in Canada, but McDonalds ran these Papyrus ads form TVs to billboards, apparently only in Canada though.

Some Montreal Papyrus

Our friend Amanda form Montreal, a Caribbean restaurant called Kalalu. What's that you say, tropical fusion? Nope, does not say Papyrus at all.

And Edible Arrangements, these guys are on the road everywhere, from Halifax to St. Louis now to Montreal.

The Papyrus in Spain falls mostly in Mallorca

One sighting at least, from "The SZ", of this boat named "Mayan Spirit. Nothing very Mayan about any of it, so I'm not so sure they Mayans would be honored or not. They were pretty cool.

Fonte Mexicano...Down Under

This Papyrus sighting is sent in by Kate all the way form Sidney, Australia. They have Mexican restaurants (or "Restaurante Mexicano")  there, even. I don't know why that seems funny to me, Mexican food is good.

Free ezine wow! And share the adventures. Papyrus may just be a half-appropriate font for this stunning ad. Spotted on by Tom.

Crocodile Hunter Papyrus

Well, we did know about this already and it's already out there via Wikipedia's Papyrus entry. But in case you didn't, Tom sent it in and we wanted it for our collection, so there we go.

Morrissey Papyrus

Making fun of daddy's font: Steve Morrissey using papyrus on his album cover. You know what that means? This guy is totally as badass as Lamb of God now.
