BBC News - What's so wrong with Comic Sans?
An old forum favorite.
Nowadays, if you say that you love Comic Sans, I am sure you'll be frowned upon. Unless you are 6 years old...
It's funny, when I glanced at this article this morning on my Android, the whole article was in Comic Sans, now on a Mac it isn't. I agree there's nothing fundamentally wrong with Comic Sans other than its ubiquity. I used it liberally when I was younger. My girlfriends mother did her Masters degree dissertation (bound as a book!) in Comic Sans. The font on my phone at the moment is another type of scrawl script also.
I agree with Mark Scott from Basingstoke:
I do remember the Win98 Days, Comic Sans was a favourite back then... to actually believe it I had a whole Project report printed and submitted on 'Comic Sans' ... Nowadays... I guess I have grown up ...
I remember that I used it when I was 13-14. Now I don't really like it, it does not look serious or original at all.
I have seen many business cards with this font... it is quite wierd. When you have this kind of cards in your hands, you think "hmm, this business doesn't look serious, I should find another enterprise, more professionnal".
It might be OK if you were a clown doing children's entertainment
I'm half tempted to design some "ironic" t-shirts saying 'give comic sans a chance' printed in... Well, not tahoma let's just say that!
Do it Jim!
Do it now!
With a smiling clown ! =D
Haha it shall be done, by popular demand!
I just can't stand the font, it is childish, and I tell you, where I am, everyone who creates a forum uses it. Mostly Club Penguin forum proposals, but I've seen a few otherwise. Funny, though.
I was in a Solicitors Office the other day when I witnessed... this!
Yes, yes, bad photo I know. But is that Comic Sans in a Solicitors Office??? Come on!
Not just in a solicitors office, but on a notice regarding your Will!
Haha, I know! And that was only one of them, there were more!
