The text is encoded in only mildly obfuscated form in the R vector:

     #local R=<7084844682857967,0787982,826975826580>

     70 84 84 46 82 85 79 67   78 79 82   82 69 75 82 65 80
     F  T  T  .  R  U  O  C    N  O  R    R  E  K  R  A  P

Both text objects use macro `L(P)` to decode R.x into "COUR.TTF" as the 
font name, and R.y and R.z respectively into "RON" and "PARKER" as the 
text string.


I actually found it pretty easy to untangle: Knowing that there is no 
such default, I looked for /some/ mechanism that could conjure strings 
out of thin air. `chr` was my hottest candidate, and once I spotted it 
in macro `L(P)`, the rest almost trivially fell into place.
