Comic Sans Strikes Back!

Filed under: Ramblings and Musings — terence @ 11:07 am

As far as fonts go, Comic Sans has it tough. Generally decried as tacky, unsophisticated and ugly, its the subject of jokes and derision. There is a campaign to ban it. And even its creator has disowned it.

However, finally, the font is fighting back, with a column in McSweeney’s.

Here’s an excerpt:

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.

Read the rest.
