translate: this shirt is sooo moronic. a non funny joke only designers understand and care about.
I do not approve of the straight apostrophe. Where’s my curly apostrophe?
Denis: Is that your idea for a tee shirt?
Thats the first time I’ve thought to measure kerning with AA – DD.
@Alejo: Come, now! Even Grampy got the joke…. He was in the newspaper business for decades. It is funny, now you’re funny too!
Hahaha this is so funny!
And then there’s the flip side.
Denis: are you referring to the accent mark in “kem’ ing”? That’s not an apostrophie, but a different kind of mark altogether. I think the interent and texting are killing those curly apostrophes anyways. I bet in a few years they’ll probably look completely old fashioned even in print.
Love it! Correct kerning is especially important if your name is CLINT!
