Akin to TSR but not specifically a parody might be Ed Fella and Jeff
Keedy's "Hard Times"--essentially Times with many of the serifs gone. BTW,
I really like Times New Random http://www.chank.com/free/random.html even
though my first try at downloading it froze my system. Let's see--how many
copies do you have to give away for free before you start making money on a
font?
