Where did YOU see comic sans today?

Recommended Posts

I was at a local hockey game the other day, and the visiting team used Comic Sans as the numbering font on their jerseys.

While many teams over here are run on a low budget and (almost always) have horrendous logo and uniform designs, the very use of Comic Sans as part of a team's identity takes the cake.

Today in my PED class. Four presentations on different health issues, and they all used Comic Sans in it as the typeface for their entire slideshow.

Dan Gilbert's open letter to Cleveland was written in Comic Sans.

A mass email sent to everyone at my company (500+ employees) from the big boss.

That's embarrassing.

Reply to him with this photo:

Just do it from someone else's computer, or just print it out and slip it under his door.

My mom uses it ALL of the time to write emails. And yes, I read ALL of her emails.

COMIC SANS LOOKS BETTER IN CAPS, NO? Although, it is still god-awful.

I see Comic Sans all the time. Most recently was yesterday, when two different people from the legal department at a well-known company sent me emails using the font. I was pretty horrified.

My AP English Physics class notes.

So is this the true meaning of "college-level?" Comic Sans?

I work for the DPS on campus (yes, a ticket writer, yes it totally sucks). And most of the tickets I write are for a 'not registered' vehicle, basically meaning there is no university parking sticker. The parking stickers are supposed to be placed on the lower left-hand of the rear window, so, this one Jeep owner has a sign posted on his back window that states:

"THIS IS A JEEP (TOP COMES OFF), STICKER IS ON THE BUMPER!!!!!!!!!"

I found it quite funny.

One of my professor's teaching assistants uses it in all of her correspondence to the class. We're supposed to take that ish seriously?
