I figure when non-designers start knocking a thing down (without any real knowledge other than the font's name), it's time to move on.

    Welcome Koobooki!

    Pull my finger!
    I'm curious if this manager genuinely didn't like Comic Sans(totally possible), or if he just picked up on all the trash-talk about Comic Sans(not necessarily from you of course). I may have missed your point, but I think it's easy to get caught up in others' opinions and adopt it as one's own. I wonder what the guy(or gal) who created Comic Sans feels about all of this. Probably laughing all the way to the bank

    And Bob I will definitely pull your finger...unless you've been eating broccoli. Smells the same burping out of either end. Nasty stuff.

      Sounds like a legal defence.

      Broccoli hater? You're not an ex-president by any chance, are you?

        I have not been following this or any other Koobooki threads. But Kool's question was posted somewhat confrontationally, in text if not intention.
        I wouldn't say Comic Sans is my most favourite font. If I had to pick just one, it would probably be Futura. And Comic Sans isn't even my favourite of the hand-written style fonts, but like I've said it's the only one here. But you made a great point I never consciously realized: The "layman" might not get that I'm making jokes unless it's presented in the most comical way possible. I think that's why many people attempting to convey comedic text go for it. Probably why it's been a little over-used, and probably why some become a little up-in-arms about it. Just a theory.

            This was a comic book. They were afraid if a different font were used, the layman reader might not associate it as a comic book style...I dunno...lost me too. I shrug. I hit "Print". Next.

            There are far nicer comic book style fonts out there beyond Comic Sans.
            Heaven forbid, you have to purchase them though.

              I'm confused. You know this is a graphic design forum, right? We generally talk about design. And bacon.
              Actually I'm here to learn from more experienced professionals. My M.O. is fart jokes. There didn't appear to be any shortage of jokes at this forum, so I didn't think much of it. However, I will try to come up with a few bacon jokes just for your benefit

                Ahhh yes-yes. The $$$ factor.

                        Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.
