Here’s a clever little trick for Photoshop nerds: Ironic Sans presented the image on the left as a puzzle for their readers. Turns out the histogram (on the right) displays the skyline of New York City.

Yes, I felt a little guilty resizing it with bicubic instead of nearest neighbor, but otherwise the fonts looked screwy.
