Yesterday, everybody was talking about Donald Trump’s temper tantrum in which he tore up his notes during the third presidential debate. But what about the content of those notes?

While we may never know exactly what his scribbles said—though we can make a few educated guesses—it does give us a rare glimpse at the Republican nominee’s handwriting. (You know, how he communicates when not using Twitter.) And of course, BuzzFeed turned it into a free font.

The Daily Dot

BF Tiny Hand, created by BuzzFeed graphic designer Mark Davis, pulled some source images from Trump’s scribbles on a Vanity Fair article. It’s now available to download for free over here on Dropbox.Typographically speaking, it’s like the bizarre blend of a high school girl’s bubbly writing and an architect’s precisely measured capitals. Or maybe it reminds you of Comic Sans or the Disney font.

Whatever it is, we’re looking forward to seeing it pasted all over memes and image macros for the next two and a half weeks as the nation barrels inexorably toward Election Day.

If you want to use Tiny Hand for yourself, simply download and unzip the file from Dropbox, install it to your local font library, and then type away in the word processor of your choice.
