Comic Sans Misses “Font Fight”

November 3rd, 2009 | 1 Comment »

Following the font conference, the typefaces involved met in an abandoned warehouse to “settle the score” and stage a typeface fight.  The leaders of the two gangs, Arial and Helvetica, attempt to win the fight to become the ultimate default.  Unfortunately, no one asked Comic Sans to join their gangs, forcing him to miss the typeface-off of the century.

For a good laugh, watch Font Fight, a short video made by CollegeHumor.com, for viewers who think that typefaces have real personalities associated with them.

    It doesn't even matter what you think. You know why? Cause I'm famous. I am on every major operating system since Microsoft f****** Bob. I'm in your signs. I'm in your browsers. I'm in your instant messengers. I'm not just a font. I am a force of motherf****** nature and I will not rest until every uptight armchair typographer cock-hat like you is surrounded by my lovable, comic-book inspired, sans-serif badassery.

    Enough of this bull****. I'm gonna go get hammered with Papyrus.
