Dammit, my whole life I've been pronouncing "sans" as "sons" (like adding an "s" to the first syllable of sonogram). I didn't realize the "a" is pronounced like in "sand" or "apple", which is silly because it's a French word and I should be right DAMMIT!

It's just a goddamn font, people. Some of you act like it stole your girlfriend in High School.

And also there's Andy, which just may be worse than Comic Sans:

I don't see what's wrong with this font at all. In fact, using it gives me a feeling of carefreeness that fonts such as Times New Roman or Calibri just don't transmit.

Comic Sans MS was a pretty decent font for its original intended purpose, namely, Microsoft Comic Chat (later simply Microsoft Chat).

It has no other valid use, IMHO.

Hatred of comic sans is one way tell that you think whatever the internet tells you to think.
 
2012-05-29 06:17:11 PM
I thought I'd be ultra cool and post a reference to the somewhat pervy designer of one of the classic fonts, but I've totally forgotten his name (and the name of the font). Among other aberrations, he had sex with his daughters and dog.
Actually, that's more than "somewhat", isn't it...

Whether or not you care about Comic Sans is a pretty good indicator of your worth as a human being.

Well, yeah, if their goal was to design something complementary with its generally horrible look and interface.

Good lord, that was a catchy song.

Now i'll have it in my head along with "Call Me Maybe".

It was Gill Sans. Look up Eric Gill, if you're at all interested.

The Internet voices every opinion. I'm pretty sure what you propose is impossible, and quite possibly the dumbest thing I have read today.

I really don't understand what the big deal is.

Are they supposed to be typeface nerds? Because after viewing their website for 60 seconds, I now have shooting pains in my skull because my brain did not know what to tell my eyes to focus on.

In layman terms: their website is dogshiat.

Yes, I'm sure the widespread hate for a font is the result of all those people actually having that opinion, not a case of monkey see monkey do.

Comic Sans became the standard "fun" font for people with no design skills. People are making fun of it, it's called a running joke.

That song made me want to do violence to the singer. The font does nothing for me one way or the other.

It's like when someone writes an email or message in all caps. I know they're not trying to yell, but that's how I hear it in my head. I read comic sans as though it is being dictated by a 5-year-old.

Font snobs... sheeesh.

I am okay with be a font snob.

/hated comic sans before it was cool
//even if it cycles into being cool or ironic I will still hate that font

For its time (mid-1990s), it was a quite decent program.

in a fight between papyrus and comic sans...I will let comic sans live.

/hating comic sans is like hating discovanilla ice
//comic sans is the embodiment of the 90s, and the 90s are DEAD TO MEEEEE.

I like it, I find it easily readable.
