Oh, honestly. I mean, that’s a typographical sin! I feel nauseated. I’m not sure how I can recover from this one. I mean, I’ve seen some pretty disgusting things in my time, but this is the pinnacle. A “friend” of mine sent me the link to it. I say “friend” because their status as such is now questionable.
Anyone who knows me knows about my “Comic Sans” issues. You can read about them
to gain a bit of perspective. What perplexes me is the inappropriate use of this dastardly font.
Now, tell me this…how seriously can you take this? I mean, honestly. I think I’d almost prefer to die of coronary failure. It looks like a practical joke…you apply the paddles and a recorded voice laughs and says, “sucks to be you!”. Comic Sans = trust fail. It does seems to be prevalent in the medical realm, perhaps in order to help people feel less intimidated…I perceive it as an expression of irresponsibility. I would reject services from any facility who used this crime against nature in their signage. Or at an ATM, or a restaurant…or make me question my personal safety if someone broke into my home or had me at gunpoint.
Papyrusis running an ever-increasingly close second in my font-hating inventory. I think they’re both ganging up on us. I don’t know what we need to do to defend ourselves against this typographical tyranny, but I feel it involves copious amounts of Helvetica, Arial, and maybe even a smidge of Times New Roman. Our very lives may depend upon it.
