Akbar (The Simpsons) Font Easter Egg - Akbar's Hidden Bunny

If you download the Akbar font (that's the name of the scrawl that "The Simpsons" is written in during the opening credits) you can type on your computer in the Simpsons font. Now, if you are typing along, and you use a points of elipsis you will get a little tiny picture. If you make that picture a 72 size font, you will see that it is one of the bunny characters from Matt Goening's Life in Hell cartoons. It's almost impossible to tell what it is when it's smaller, but as the font increases it gets clearer and you can plainly see that it's one of the Life in Hell Bunnies.

Back to the original egg here... http://web.mit.edu/jonb/www/groening/akbar.html as someone else mentioned above. Also on this site is another font called Springbats Deluxe that features mug-shot type drawings of all the characters. The rabbit picture that this egg refers to is the lower case z in that font.

You can also get the Akbar font if you download the Simpsons desktop theme. It comes included in the theme. You can get that at www.tucows.com (I think).

The character positions 130-135 have cartoon characters. 132 and 133 appear to be a one-eared and two-eared rabbits, but the other 4 is a character wearing a fez.
