What is the font in the easter egg of the the email 4 Branches where the spreadsheet comes up and it shows a drawing of homestar with a "mongolian beef wig" (the "a great idea for personal style" font)? Y'know what I'm talking about?

Here's a screenshot of the easter egg:

Here's a better resolution pic:

Help?
Thanks :D

My guess would be that it isn't actually a font, but that TBC just used a paint-esque (probably greatly superior to paint) program to just write it. They have preoven themselves adept at drawing stuff on computers.

I would agree. Technically, it is possible it's a font, as we never see more than 2 of the same letter. So, even though the ones we do see don't match, we can't say for certain. But I would agree that it's unlikely to be one. Perhaps later I'll decompile the Flash file and check for certain.

No guys, mrducklumps means the font at the top, the one the arrow points to in the second picture.
