The Copperplate Boilerplate

Comic Transcript

BOSS: You have a card that identifies you as an official spokesman for this “Blogging Community?”

KING: Yeah… it’s almost exactly like this one, but it says “Blogosphere” instead of “Internet.”

ALEX: How exactly did you become a duly registered representative of the Blogosphere?

KING: I didn’t. There’s no such thing.

ALEX: I’ll rephrase the question. How exactly did you get credentials that identify you as a duly registered representative of the Blogosphere?

KING: All it takes is a laser printer, some fancy paper from an office supply store, and access to the Copperplate Gothic font.

ALEX: Can a font really be that persuasive?

KING: Hold on a minute.

(KING pulls out a card that says “Yes” in the Copperplate Gothic font.)

ALEX: I have to admit it’s a compelling argument.
