Derby entry comments for Derby #394: The Alphabet

Comments for individual derby entries are placed in this thread.

Pop culture alphabet from the 80s. Can you name them all? Some are pretty obscure…

They never give you enough letters.

VBG = very big grin, for those who don’t remember.

This is a revision of an earlier design. Hope you like. :slight_smile:

I hope this fits with the theme. It does include all of the letters and the military lingo for them, but it is not a letter-for-letter design.

See if you can figure each one out…I’ll post each joke later in a few days!

Ha, great minds think alike! :slight_smile:

Hey, we have 3 letters in common!

I tried to follow the real rules as much as possible (e.g. only so many Cs and Hs, etc). Are these words allowed when you play at your house?

Looks like you’ve got too many colors goin’ on here

A shirt for the cat hoarder in your life.

Five plus halftones. (Not at the right computer to post swatches right now).

Clever. There’s a few I didn’t know…

:slight_smile: Is the fine print “Lorem Ipsum…”?

OMG, this isn’t even a joke.

I lol’d!
