Papyrus seems to be a bit overused (shock). Papyrus also seems to be used not so appropriately in many occasions (even bigger shock). These are just two of the reasons it became the first Taboo Typeface on the podcast, back in 2005.

However, when we visited Nashville last year, Mad Phil was telling me that he enjoyed taking photos of all of the places he sees Papyrus, sharing that his feelings of hate towards this font run much deeper then my own. Since then, I’ve found some particularly nice samples where it is cut-out, or drop shadowed, where even I couldn’t resist taking a photo and sending them his way. Thankfully, Mad Phil has started a Flickr group dedicated to the typeface so the enjoyment can be shared by all of those who share the displeasure of seeing this font overtake all of the others in its path.
