[typography] - a copied comment from Font or Typeface?:
The correct hierarchy of typographic terminology, as I learned it, is broken down into the four Fs.
FOUNDRY: The designer and/or manufacturer of sets of type. Berthold Direct Corporation is a type foundry.
FAMILY: Related typefaces from the same foundry. Berthold Garamond is a type family.
FACE: The style of the type (regular, medium, bold, etc.). Berthold Garamond regular is one typeface while Berthold Garamond italic is a different typeface.
FONT: A typeface at a specific size. Berthold Garamond italic, 10 point is one font while Berthold Garamond italic, 12 point is a different font.
simply for the joy of the esoteric terminology hierarchy. See Template:Typography terms - Wikipedia if you need more.

[nsfw] - When Lily Allen originally wrote the song, she had in mind the far-right-wing British National Party and George W. Bush (which the ignorable official video addresses). Then this year, after some random folks made The Big Fat Gay Collab video mashup, and Lily saw and liked it live on French Television, other groups have been joining in, from England, France, and Brazil, to Hungararian celebrities and more. [Potential intercultural overgeneralisation comparison fun! Which country's scene has the best fashion?] A friendly little earworm!
