Gah!

Quote
A rude designer has mixed together Comic Sans and Papyrus typefaces together, thus creating the Nelly and Tim McGraw of fonts.

The eye-tearing combination was concocted by Ben Harman, a once respectable graphic designer who’s gone rogue. Just kidding, his stuff is​ great, but this is certainly not.

The “world’s first genetically engineered superfont,” he as describes it, is called Comic Papyrus and will forever haunt your dreams. “Your two most favoritest fonts ever have FINALLY been smooshed together typographically, just as Darwin intended. Cross-bred. Cross-awesomified,” he a​dds.

The font combines the tear-inducing curves of Comic Sans used by kindergarten teachers everywhere with the sneeze-starting texture in Papyrus. There has been a few attempts at this ​before, but this one is actually downloadable (an​d useable) for $5.


Maybe if it was free and I wanted to make someone's brain reboot I would but not for $5 I'm not.

Bah, it is just comic sans with the "old" effect of papyrus. Just check the "a" or the "p"...

I never understood how comic sans came to be so loathed. Who could get worked up over a font? It's perfectly readable, which is a font's only function in life.

"The basic plot is that Donna Speir and Hope Marie Carlton, the two undercover DEA agent Playboy Playmates from the last movie, are still running around in jungle shorts, cowboy boots and spaghetti strap T-shirts, firing their machine guns at drug smugglers, Filipino communist guerrillas, and corrupt federal agents while their two friends, Lisa London and Miss May 1984 Patty Duffek, lounge around the pool a lot and talk on speaker phones that look like fax machines."-Joe Bob on SAVAGE BEACH

On the internet it was meant to describe infantile type of font, at least from what I have gathered. Personally I think the bandwagon for the hate train has been over blown to death multiple times, even though I really don't care about it.

I agree with you, overall if one uses it for small block of texts...

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
