Friday Funnies: Kerning

This week's Friday Funny brought to you by xkcd:



Alt text: I have never been as self-conscious about my handwriting as when I was inking in the caption for this comic.

And, for those of you who aren't familiar with graphic design and typesetting, the definition of kerning:
kerning
adj [ˈkɜːnɪŋ]
n
Printing the adjustment of space between the letters of words to improve the appearance of text.
