So Lars Willem Veldkamp says that Arial means "I am the devil" and then uses Arial in his description of what each font means. So is that an admission?

starsrift: Clearly, they've confused Arial and Comic Sans.

Comic Sans
I am the hand of God

Clearly they're trolling

I love people who go on these anti-font rants. I don't understand them, but they crack my shiat up. The truth is that most of these fonts have a use at some place and some time, whether it's Arial, Bembo, Trajan or even Comic Sans. Some of these don't have a place often, but it's still there. Sure the Cool Kids like to talk tough, but most of them don't know what they're talking about.

I always thought Arial said "I am too lazy to change the default"

/Uses Arial almost exclusively.
