Annual All-Reddit Calligriphication Extravaganza

April Fool’s Day is one of those Love It/Hate It kind of things. When it’s done cleverly, it can be a lot of fun. When it isn’t… Well, it isn’t.

But over on the Calligraphy subreddit (which went full Comic Sans for April 1st, a jarring change), we have a wonderful tradition of exploring around Reddit, finding entertaining comments, and prettying them up in calligraphy. Mind you, many of them won’t make sense without context, but that’s probably even better. So here’s this year’s batch – enjoy!

(Note – there may be some NSFW text in here. Scratch that. There will be.)

Reddit Comments - Autism Spectre
I think this has the makings of a great kids’ show.


Reddit Comments - Big Fact
It just feels good, you know?


Reddit Comments - Butts Are Butts
You would think it doesn’t need to be said, but sometimes these things do.


Reddit Comments - Dog Poop
I can’t help but read this in the voice of the pickpocket from “Casablanca”.


Reddit Comments - I'm Not Crying
Why are all these cats chopping onions in here? Why?!


Reddit Comments - Karl Marx
Beards are a turn-on in any economic paradigm.


Reddit Comments - Meesa Thinks
Jar-Jar would have been marginally better if he cursed a lot. Marginally.


Reddit Comments - Pillage
In reference to Jason Momoa, and I can’t say I disagree.


Reddit Comments - Primary Schools
Some of us confine our lurking to more appropriate places.


Reddit Comments - Replace With Robots
I have this thought pretty much during every commute.


Reddit Comments - Squatter
Again, context helps here, but not a whole lot.


Reddit Comments - Toilet
Huh, toilet designers? When are you going to step up?


Reddit Comments - Two-Pump Mocha
You’re damn right they do.


Reddit Comments - V for Viennetta
Cakes are bulletproof.


Let's escalate the whole thing to a galaxy-wide conflict.

    I honestly enjoy seeing those, and it makes me want to really get into Calligraphy too. Great quotes – and amusing ones especially – are something you can get me with every time.
    I’d just hope you’d tell me which inks are used. This seems a bit like torture. 🙂
    For example… which ink was used for the “Autism Spectre” at the very top? I can’t quite put it, but I really like it.

    Thanks for sharing, very beautiful calligraphy there.

      I think “Autism Spectre” was written with De Atramentis Pigeon Blue. I *think* – I have to get better at keeping records of what inks I use. That’ll go into my ever-evolving self=improvement plan.

        Thank you 🙂 Do that, for us ink addicts that’d be dangerously helpful 😉
