Funny! Laughing

I worked with a VP who didn't like me using Comic Sans in my emails. I changed to Arial or something like that. He got fired. (The announcement letter of his "resignation" was produced in Comic Sans...just kidding!)

Hey Van,

Glad to see you're still visiting. What fonts do you like?

As for banning comic sans...

bancomicsans.com wrote:In 1995 Microsoft released the font Comic Sans originally designed for comic book style talk bubbles containing informational help text. Since that time the typeface has been used in countless contexts from restaurant signage to college exams to medical information. These widespread abuses of printed type threaten to erode the very foundations upon which centuries of typographic history are built.
