Totally random thought

While driving home today, I spotted a car with lettering in the windshield that spelled "PICASSO" in all caps in Old English script. I know that makes some people cringe, because you're not supposed to use that font in all caps. There's supposed to be one capital letter at the beginning, acting as a decorative lead-in to the rest of the word.

And I thought of an analogy: setting all-caps text in Old English font is like singing a song and inserting a flourish intro before every single word. Like instead of singing:

o/` Dada dada da da, hey! Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb... o/`

...you're singing:

o/` Dada dada da da, hey! Mary...
Dada dada da da, hey! Had...
Dada dada da da, hey! A...
Dada dada da da, hey! Little...
Dada dada da da, hey! Lamb... o/`
