I loathe Comic Sans like most other people with any sense of taste. I shudder with revulsion when people at work send out emails and official company documents formatted with it, looking like a retarded child scrawled it with a broken crayon. Goddammit, stop that! Don’t you know how using Comic Sans makes you look?
But now the font speaks up in defense of its own use, and it has a lot to say. Wow, I don’t think I’d like to meet this font in a dark alley. It would definitely kick my ass.
Listen up. I know the shit you’ve been saying behind my back. You think I’m stupid. You think I’m immature. You think I’m a malformed, pathetic excuse for a font. Well think again, nerdhole, because I’m Comic Sans, and I’m the best thing to happen to typography since Johannes fucking Gutenberg.
Miracle of miracles, someone has finally done the right thing and started a campaign to ban the Comic Sans font. It’s tongue-in-cheek, but I’m serious — it’s about fucking time that we stand up and demand that people stop using this idiotic typeface once and for all. Especially you people who use it for email at work. Stop that! No offense, but nothing says “I’m an unprofessional twat” like sending company emails in Comic Sans. Do you really think it’s a good idea to discuss business matters using childish scribblings? How can anyone take you seriously, especially people outside your company? I’ve known plenty of office drones who insist on using Comic Sans, and reading their emails is the visual equivalent of hearing someone making goo-goo talk with a baby.
What we really need is a computer virus that does nothing but delete this font. Yes, I really hate it that much, and apparently so do a lot of other people. In an interview with the campaign leader, he says, “For every person who sends an angry email telling us to ‘get a life, it’s just a font’ we get about 20 praising the campaign. No kidding.”
