Funny quote when I signed into my hosted webspace....

Q: What do you call the money you pay to the government when you ride into the country on the back of an elephant?

A: A howdah duty.

I was impressed -- the interlanguage (and intercultural; "howdy doody" is moderately obscure, no?) pun is pretty sophisticated.

Dan Cederholm likes Halvorsen too

Halvorsen is the typeface I recently used for my GreenBetween redesign. Turns out that Dan likes it too.

I don't really know Dan, although I hired him via Google to do some fast icons for a small project a couple of years ago. (I happened to be at his website because a friend of mine needs a template for his blog & I was going to recommend Dan.)
