Hott Link: Cheese or Font?


This website definitely gets filed under “So pissed I didn’t think of this first.”

The simple and surprisingly challenging game goes like so: the computer picks a random word from its database of 261 cheeses and fonts, and you have to guess whether the word in question is in fact a cheese or a font. It’s tough, because from Farnaz to Faricy and Calaveras to Cathelain, there are a surprising number of words that sound like they could really be either one.

OK, maybe not everyone else in the world is as mutually obsessed with food and writing as I am, but I thought it was pretty freaking hilarious.

Play Cheese or Font! and of course feel free to post your high scores here.

    Sure would be nice to see a score breakdown:

    -How many cheeses right
    -How many cheeses wrong
    -How many fonts right
    -How many fonts wrong

    60.1%! I’m pretty sure I got mostly fonts wrong since cheese was my default answer.
