Zululand Rhino Reserve

Tom L. sends in this pic from the site for Zululand Rhino Reserve he first spotted on TV, so thank you for nabbing it for us! It was airing on Nova on PBS of course, so that sort of explains it, but this better not be a contribution from a view like you.

Wicked. And by wicked I mean everyone looking at this right now could do better. I'm sorry, I have no idea how their wine actually is, but this looks like it probably doesn't cost very much. Thanks Tom for the snap!

White Sands

You can tell a good credit company that cheaps out on their brand design, right? Sent in by Tom, who I trust kept on driving.

Someone's lost their mind

Or metabolism, and can't find it. LOL! Right? No, probably not. Who made this, and who put it in a store? Don knows, even he calls it crappy. As you've seen if you follow this blog or ever wander into dollar stores and the like, Papyrus is a font of choice for this kind of thing.

All Employees Must Use a Decent Typeface

I kind of wish I could put that sign up there next to this one. I also kind of wish restaurants didn't have to put up signs telling employees that they have to wash their hands after using the washroom, but I guess there are worse things to worry about. Thanks Dan, and stay clean Somerville, MA.

Tout sur Papyrus

Yeah I know that French isn't as good as Sel Marin Gris en Papyrus, which probably isn't even good. But anyway, at a glance half a glance this site had potential to be cool (sans-Papyrus of course) in a retro sort of way. Space background, animated gifs...yet scrolling down the site just makes me want to go away, but I can't, because it scrolls endlessly.

Thanks to Paul for this one (and his girlfriend for tormenting him with the Papyrus). Still scrolling though, send food and beer.

Artesia eh?

Looks like this one was snapped while in a car, so kudos to Nate for capturing it. According to Google, this Papyrus billboard could be for any number of things. One thing it isn't is an exit I'll take if I ever come across it.
