The Font Monologue: Mike Lacher's "I'm Comic Sans, Asshole"

Filed under: Looked Into   Tagged: , , , , , , ,


Pollux writes:

If you want a laugh, read this short imagined monologue by designer and writer Mike Lacher, which appears in McSweeney’s.

The imagined monologist? The font that everyone loves to hate, Comic Sans. This unloved font, deliciously defiant in Lacher’s monologue, lashes out angrily at all critics and comers.

See? Comic Sans is a fun font.
