Where did YOU see comic sans today?

Recommended Posts

My AP English Physics Psychology class notes.

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

AP Conspiracy!

On the "wings" of a wooden airplane. Coincidentally, it was an airplane which you could buy and customize, out of a catalog given to me by the people at the campus printing resource center. We were there on a "field trip" with, also coincidentally, my graphic design class. My friend turns to me upon reading what was printed on the wings ("Drugs Don't Fly With Me") and added "And Neither Does Comic Sans."

It's also on a link from OU's homepage, upper left corner... ugh. I found this today when I was looking up something.

A house in the next street has a sign on its front door requesting that dog owners refrain from letting their animals defecate upon their doorstep (only in much less polite language) written in comic sans. It's quite amusing.

The Colorado Department of Child Support Enforcement uses Comic Sans. Fortunately I know from an administration standpoint, and not from a plaintiff's.

That is awesome.

Is it true Kobayashi held the record in #3 until Joey Chestnut came to Spikes? /Nathans hotdog eating contest joke

You only get so often to reference that.

My anatomy teacher uses it on our study guides, the sad thing is I'm probably the only person that really notices it haha.

This wasn't today, but just yesterday the lady that works in a desk over at my office was asking her friend about what font she was going to use and mentioned how she likes comic sans.

I told her how disappointed I was in her for doing so. And I don't know that it'll help- but maybe, just maybe one of these days she'll stop and think before using it. If so, I feel I did my job that day.

In all seriousness, the reigning champ is a skinny girl who is about 5'2". She was pregnant at the time and ate 14 dogs. She was no longer skinny after she won.

My eyes literally melt out of my head everytime I see Comic Sans.

Sitting down for a slideshow only to be greeted with Comic Sans is like finding El Dorado, only to realize the City of Gold is just a landfill of Ferrero Rocher wrappers.

From Fake AP Stylebook today: "Online stories should be set in Comic Sans to watch wanna-be designers get amazingly red in the face."

This is now in my favorite quotations on Facebook. Congrats.

A kid in our graphic design class actually tried to defend using Comic Sans in one of his designs last week... needless to say, it didn't work.

Y'all act like you're too good for Comic Sans. Why don't you find a good way to use it instead of huffing and puffing about how much it sucks and how terrible the people who use it are. Challenge yourself to make it work instead of jumping on the lazy 'it sucks' bandwagon. It'll make you a better designer, and you'll never look at 'taboo' fonts the same way again (or any font, for that matter). There's a good way to use almost every font. You just have to figure out what that way is.
