This year, WordPress is making suggestions each day for a topic bloggers should write about if they choose to take the post-a-day challenge. Yesterday’s topic was “who deserves more credit than they get?” I’m going to answer that, but I’m going to change this to a thing.
Comic Sans, the ubiquitous Microsoft font, (one I associate with middle-aged female office managers in Indiana) gets a bad rap, but it has inspired some very funny creations, and I think deserves more credit than it gets. There is the McSweeney’s article, written in the voice of the maligned font; a PSA of sorts for the “Comic Sans Criminal;” and, my personal favorite, this YouTube video of Hitler learning that his “marketing team” chose to do up its latest advertising campaign with Comic Sans font (Featuring the widely-used clip from Downfall).
