    So, i'll take the blame for this issue, it was definitely a ID-10-T error on my part.

    A friend of mine sent me a file with 65,000 fonts to use for whatever reasons. I was an idiot and an impatient moron and just decided to dump all 65,000 fonts into the font folder.

    Now my MBP (15", 2.53ghz, 4gb ram) is running slower than a pinto going up hill with 4 fat dudes inside of it. Every time i go into finder to try and delete a font or multiple fonts, or even just move the fonts, finder freezes and i have to relaunch. I'm trying to boot up in smart mode right now to see if that'll help, but if anybody else has any ideas as to how I can get around this issue and fix it, that'd be freaking FANTASTIC.

    I'm pretty sure you can use terminal and navigate to the font folder and delete it via terminal.

    Although I'm not sure the proper commands for it. Someone can help you with that.
