Wow, the gallery is filled with amazing fonts! Also, I'm so delighted to be reminded of the Sphinx pangram.

Ah, this reminds me of the heady days of 1986 or 7, creating ridiculous pixel fonts on a Mac 512 by editing the font suitcases. I made the stupidest novelty fonts, like one where each letter was displayed on a gravestone, and one where each letter spelled out the corresponding word from the Military Phonetic Alphabet. Can’t wait to play with this!

"Cozy squid gives Linux job, irks wrathful temp" was always my go-to when setting type

Did anyone fill out the thing in SkyMall where you turned your handwriting into a font

This is super cool. So easy and fun to use.
I am working on a Futurama Alienese Font right now, even though I should be working...

My favorite, which has some overlap with the post headline but with a sexier twist, is "Jackdaws love my big sphinx of quartz."
