I assume the remark in question has something to do with SB's "waste of serif" line? In which case... Sans Serif is an actual font used in word processors; I think it's pretty obvious that that's what he's referencing here. Anyone agree? (Maybe STUFF it?) -Zero.exe

:Typefaces are classified as either [[Wikipedia:Serif|Serif]] or [[Wikipedia:Sans serif|Sans serif]]; serifs themselves are the little modifications that only serif typefaces have. By claiming they're a "waste of serif", to me it seems he's suggesting they're a waste of ink or a waste of letters. The "goof" here is that the typeface used on the box in the email is actually a sans-serif font, and there are no serifs wasted, if we interpret his statement literally as referring to serifs rather than letters/ink. As Jay notes, it also doesn't make much sense to call the UPC itself a waste of anything. -- [[User:Mithent|Mithent]] 01:51, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
