Apparently, Comic Sans doesn"t care whether you"re a Fortune 500 company or not.

I think that when most people are upset about people using comic sans, they`re joking (if not then they`re just being pretentious).

The main problem with it, though, is that it`s often used disingenuously. When a teacher/boss uses it on a boring powerpoint, for example, it`s like watching them come in with a bowtie that spins pathetically before they give their entire presentation in monotone and proceed to commit suicide. It just comes off as a really false feeling attempt to make things less depressing.

Comic Sans sucks.

@hansonrocks you obviously are not a graphic designer and know nothing about typography lol.

In reality though I agree, I don`t get why people care THAT much. I remember when all the designers on the internet freaked out because Avatar used Papyrus lol.

If I see a business use Comic Sans anywhere, it just screams unprofessional and tacky at me.

These are real fonts!

Funny link, though :)

That was the coolest things I`ve read in ages.

It was like losing my virginity to a Stoya, while riding a dolphin, on the sun, in another universe, in the fifth-f**king dimension.

...on paper.

how can someone get so upptight about a font? Really there are hundreds of them around, why have a go at Comic Sans?

I don`t know much about fonts and I truly don`t give a drat. I just figured as long as something wasn`t to small, to big, or to cartoony then it was suitable. Comic sans doesn`t strike me as either of those but maybe that`s just me.

Seriously though - Arial or Helvetica. The act of reading doesn`t need goddamn funzies and party sprinkles, it`s difficult enough for some people. Imagine if some jackass hipster decided to change the way stop signs at intersections looked because he thought it wasn`t "cool" enough or whatever. These dumb fonts are like that. Fine for a little splash of attention-get, but FFS don`t go writing anything important or lengthy with it!

Lucida Sans FTW. It`s the plainest looking one, nothing fancy, straight up words, easy to read.

Arial and Times New Roman can die.

Comic Sans isn`t bad, just outdated. It`s the look of the early 90`s. They thought it was edgy. Comic Sans nowadays just looks silly. There are hundreds of different fun looking fonts to use, comic is the worst one in the list, sorry, it`s been done, and overdone; and now it`s outdated.

Truth has been spoken.
