Geekiest bizarre urban legend. Ever.

According to Suzy Rice, it was Josef Goebbels who first designed Helvetica, the über-cool typeface beloved of font-fetishists everywhere. The allegation has added geek appeal, as Suzy Rice was the designer of the original "Star Wars" logo. I came across the startling assertion in an article entitled "The Fascist font of Star Wars".

Yeah, right - and Bob Holness played sax on Gerry Rafferty’s "Baker Street".
