Why in the world would he not actually type the message itself in the font it's trying to explain?

Or do I just not "get art?"

Opinions about fonts. huh.

Yeah, I don't get why he always does the "message" in Helvetica, rather than in the font itself. It seems like it would be more effective the other way around.

Also ... WTF Comic Sans?
