  2. It worries me how hard I laughed at that.

    It would have been funnier if they had done the credits in Trajan, though, don’t you think?

  5. Susan,
    Too Funny!
    Sonja,
    I’m a Trajan Pro fan. Used it way too many times. And it is the primary font for Allelon. So this video was much too funny.
    Mike,
    They should have done all the graphics in TP. It would have been much funnier…or not. But maybe they didn’t want to buy it.

  9. But wait! There’s MORE!

    OMG-how often do you find a word where you can do a limmerick that rhymes with *vespasian*? Thank goodness for Roman rhymin’! Keeps us young …

    OMG-did they use Trajan for *The Nativity*? If so, could we not rightfully sing, “Come thou font of every blessing ….” See. It IS the christian typeface. Authentic, clean, straight-up. What more could a printjob ask for?
