Or, "Who the Fuck Named These Fonts?!"
It's...I don't even know anymore, alright? I don't know why I do this, but I do.
Arial Font Family
This font would look really good in a newspaper, don't you think?

Okay, who the fuck named this font? It's the whole reason I thought this blog up.
I like how the article isn't written in this font. Anyway, they should just call it Fixed Sizes, because that's less stupid than Fixedsys.Originally Posted by Wikipedia
This font is butt-fugly, too. It's like the stereotypical old-school game font, but lamer.
Franklin Gothic Medium
Not too bad, but nothing particularly memorable. It really reminds me of the Addams Family, probably because it contains the words Gothic and Medium (as in, a person who channels the dead.)
Franklin Gothic and its related faces are realist sans-serif typefaces originated by Morris Fuller Benton (1872–1948) in 1902. “Gothic” is an increasingly archaic term meaning sans-serif. Franklin Gothic has been used in many advertisements and headlines in newspapers. The typeface continues to maintain a high profile, appearing in a variety of media from books to billboards. Despite a period of eclipse in the 1930s, after the introduction of European faces like Kabel and Futura, they were re-discovered by American designers in the 1940s and have remained popular ever since.
I'll do more fonts later, maybe. God, so many of them have dumbass names. If I named a font, it'd be called The Real You, or What Was Missing.
