To tell you the truth, I don’t know what “mandingo” means. I think I heard it on Kentucky Fried Movie, but I can’t remember the context. I think it was something like, “..more offensive than Mandingo.” I should do some research on naming my fonts before I commit, but where’s the fun in that?
The reason I named it Mandingo is because everytime Li’l Strommer e-mails me, he always writes that in the subject line, then never delivers on the info on what its all about. I guess its more interesting than the classic “Hi” or “What’s your mom’s phone number?” So at any rate, that’s the name of my new font. Li’l Strommer might hook me up with a job at a web design firm in Chicago. That would rock. So I made this font for him.
