I actually kinda like Dipshit Condensed. They put a lot of effort into that slab serif typeface. And it is a typeface since unlike the others it’s obviously copied from print.

Stealing sheep is the least of their faults.

Do any of these fonts automatically misspell words?

Idiots; or punny enemies of Bernard Mandeville’s proposed social reform?

Given that the conspiracies list on those signs is way incomplete, what about Sans Soros?

I came to make a Comic Sans joke until I saw this.
