Our friend Nathan spotted this in the "Help" popover in the AirGuitar iPad app. Funny, because this is one of the first things I downloaded on the iPad and it was so horrible I never got around to finding it. Now PocketGuitar for iPhone on the other hand...

Andrea pointed out that the folks at Tahiti Sun Travel have sites set up for Bora Bora and surrounding islands. They're probably not too concerned and out enjoying the tropics...I dunno, I'd go there, it looks damn gorgeous. I mean just ask this guy:

An anonymous submission for a sighting at Lewis-Clark State College is in Lewiston, Idaho. The sender stated his concern of Papyrus not representing business, technology, or service. I concur. Although it is used an awful lot to represent businesses.

Eric snapped this pic of a 100% Papyrus real estate sign. If you check their website they do actually have some fine looking homes, albeit a brutal website and a tacky ***What we offer*** link that's actually a PDF that they put through the rub across a dirty floor filter a few times.

Jeff pointed us at this PDF to image converter, so we gave it a shot. The first thing I didn't like, from a usability perspective, was the black-on-red filename text. And then gah! How untechnological. Perhaps they equated Papyrus with paper, and turning paper info an image? Even that logic isn't entirely sound. But once I downloaded my file (on a Mac) it was a .zip file which I found unnecessary, but then it unzipped to a .cpgz (whatever the hell that is)...which opened as a .zip...which opened as a .cpgz...you see the problem here.

This coupon was found by Nathaniel in one of those junk mail promo envelopes we all love (I actually always check them out for fun). I'm not surprised to see Papyrus here at all, in fact I'm surprised the font isn't used more often on these things.

Nathan nabbed us this shot of a pizza place, Racanelli's Cusiana (or Racanelli's Papyrusiana if you will) that closed for renovations and after two years ends up with this...a giant metal Papyrus monstrosity of a sign. And according to Nathan they are closed yet again for renovations...I'm warning you...
