To the last, almost certainly 'no'. Font license terms vary a lot, but one
thing you certainly don't get is the right to do whatever you like with a font.
The most general set of restrictions (from the main font houses) confine your

Of course, these might be relaxed in the case of a 'novelty' font, but fonts
are copyright just like any other artistic creation.
Here are URLs for sample license terms from Monotype and Linotype:
