the joke's on you if you use comic sans

So, today I got a bbm from a friend asking 
'Should you NEVER use comic sans?'

She has heard me whinge about it before. There are lots of things I'm quite opinionated about, and that's right up there, along with spelling, Gwyneth Paltrow and tattoos.

Comic sans says a lot about you - mostly bad things:

(I'm okay with this blog being a dalmation by the way - most things are black AND white around here - except comic sans)

I replied, 'Never ever ever.' 

And upon reflection amended that to 'Well, only if you're 11 years old and using your dad's Windows 95.'

Turns out I was exactly right.

As proven by stumbling across this site on my hectic trawl
through Google to prove my point:

Go there now to take the pledge,
and make the world a better place.

My work here is done for the day.

(thank you for mails after yesterday.
I found my appetite. And smashed mac&cheese, a krispy kreme, 2 cans of coke and some choc digestives, after the peanut butter & syrup zarm. shocked = shocking! So much for calories not counting!)

Hi Revoici - welcome to the madness :)

I had a browse over on your site and realise you're in KZN, my home province - good luck on your blogging journey, and look forward to reading more.

Never mind Comic Sans......isn't trying to hide your shocking diet in ridiculously small font size a bit of a crime too :-)

Carly said...

Yes well, I can't discuss that now, I'm off for a run. A runwalk. And maybe a heart attack.

Gillian said...

Aah, for once something we are in complete and utter agreement in!

Stephanie said...

Meanwhile you blind my eyes by using Courier and a triple line spacing…Hm… What does Courier say about you???

Carly said...

I can't wait for you to visit and do a whole redesign. yay!

My dear friend Carly,

I must point out that, whilst proving a very valid point on font, you seem to have missed an all important apostrophe...

With much love,
The spelling and grammar queen.
