Many in artsy circles mock it as just too lightweight and cutesy.

Seriously? There is nothing "cutesy" about Comic Sans...but there's a lot of "ugly" involved.

I like chopped bacon on salads and bacon on some sandwiches but most of the time, straight up bacon is just way too greasy to be remotely appetizing to me. Maybe I just don't know anyone who makes it right.

I'd rather eat fresh fruit. Nothing beats fresh fruit for me.

Well, my ring fingers are longer, but I actually did score higher on the math sections.

I don't know, this article's funny to me in the same way that Taller People Are Smarter one that came out last year.

You're not the only one, Flyn. Someone posted this in the graphicdesign community on lj: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v160/ ... ympics.gif

The £400K refers to the fact that it cost £400,000. I would love to get paid £400,000 to design a logo as ugly as that.

It fits right in. I didn't realize it until I read it, but it's supposed to say 2012 in the pink. And you can sort of see it...if you squint and suspend reality for a minute.

It seems like everyone hates it, though, so there's talk of them changing it.

I can totally see that as the font that comes out of Mark Twain's mouth. And Flyn, that's part of why I love that g so much. It can be so many things! And it just looks nice, unlike, say the London Olympics 2012 logo that's floating around the internet...have any of you seen it? It's horrifying. htt...

Who would win in a fight: Papyrus or Comic Sans? Tonight's bout will be in the 12 to 14 point weight class. In this corner, born in 1994 and hailing from Redmond, WA is the current internet champion: Comic Sans! ( crowd boos and hisses! ) In the opposite corner, we have Papyrus, born in 1983, from ...

I'm gonna ignore the cicadas a minute to be a typography snob and say WHY DID THEY USE PAPYRUS. It makes me want to tear out my eyes.

There was one member, whose name escapes me, throwing drums as high as he could and narrowly missing hitting Regine in the head trying to catch them, crashing his cymbal as hard as a human could swing a stick (until it exploded), falling off the stage (hard), falling up the stage (harder), and all ...

My boyfriend sent me the link a few weeks ago like, "look how cute!" but I couldn't believe it went on for a minute and a half. Is it really that cute? Is my heart dead, or something?

In the LIN nerd department, I had a friend Ashley who was once considering an ash tattoo. She has since changed her name (and course of study) so it's probably a good thing she didn't go through with it. Actually, I've been planning to get my name in IPA for some time, but I haven't been able to to...

In my experience, a band can rarely plan dinner since they may not be sure at what time they make it to the venue, and even so they usually don't know exactly when they can set up and soundcheck. It involves an amazing lot of waiting and hanging around for that brief moment on stage - although TLW ...
