What makes that even a worse design is that RYAN RUTLEDGE isn't in the same font.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

crazy comic sans Jesus van

Did you snap that photo? What's the story behind that thing?

I didn't, but someone I know did. He actually got out of his car while searching for a parking spot at a mall to take a picture of that thing. Apparently, he wasn't the only one. I couldn't get any more information out of him.

I had a dream last night that the Leafs unveiled new jerseys at the draft, and used Comic Sans as the font. Naturally the first thing I did was come on here to see the reactions :grin:

Eh, I thing Windings would be a better choice ;)

And completely OT, but still related to dreams about Toronto-area sports teams,I had a dream a few nights ago that the Blue Jays retired the Expos' numbers. Yeah...

My teacher used it in his Powerpoint today. I was trying so hard to ignore it but I couldn't.

My math teacher fills our worksheets and her powerpoints with them. cry.gif

Here are a bunch of good (bad) examples.

Yet to see it today other than this message board, but I don't really have a issue with comic sans. Like others have it's only acceptable in certain instances. When I worked at a high school, quite a few teachers, especially art teachers used comic sans pretty regularly, from what I gathered they used it to keep things from getting too boring. Though I agree comic sans is overused.

I personally like courier new but only when writing screenplays, which is the appropriate font. I've tried using it other places and just doesn't seem right to me. If others are comfortable with it that's fine.

I do get a kick out people when I go to read someone's screenplay and it's not in courier or courier new, but in other fonts. I've yet to see one in comic sans though. :)

Yea I get what you mean. Like if I see it used for something relating to children like a daycare (which there is one down the street from me that uses it on their sign) then it makes sense. But why does it have to be the go-to font for EVERYTHING?!

The last picture I posted of the teddy bear was in Hoboken, NJ on the same street where a storefront sign also used it. I came across it a lot while I was in Manhattan too.
