Everybody Hates Comic Sans

I just noticed: In over 60 million years of blogging, I have only ever mentioned the typeface Comic Sans, and my intense hatred of it, once.

Then again, most intelligent people hate Comic Sans so some might say it needn't even be mentioned. It's like saying Nazism is bad.

But in case you somehow remain unaware of its crimes against humanity, you should know there is a concerted effort to ban it. Comic Sans, I mean. Not Nazism.

This public service message was inspired by recently seeing Comic Sans get a kicking in mainstream media: Typeface Inspired by Comic Books Has Become a Font of Ill Will. (Via The Beat.)
