"analogous to showing up for a black-tie event in a clown costume"

Comic Sans walks into a bar, bartender says, "We don't serve your type."

Creator of the world's most hated font, Vincent Connare, comes clean here. God, I wish blogger had Comic Sans (not really).

Ahhh! I just received an email in bright blue 12 point comic sans from a vp of a print media co.
I want to assume she sent it in rebellion or irony.
Either way, it's offensive to my eyes.

Comic sans does suck, but I don't know why so many people get so upset over it. It's just a font! Yes, it indicates a further dumbing down of the computing world, but come on, like LOLcats don't? Come to think of it, even LOLcats don't use comic sans for the captions.

I wouldn't serve it either.

Awesome article, though.
