One thing that really pisses me off is the indiscriminate use of the Comic Sans font. Actually I don't care that much but there is a movement by typographical purists to stop this juvenile-looking, Microsoft-spawned lettering from appearing on everything. It's called Ban Comic Sans and they have a sticker with the inventor of Comic Sans on it, which you can slap down wherever you see a gratuitous usage of these happy, dumbed-down letters. I once told a table full of people about the Ban Comic Sans movement and completely stopped the conversation, so I know exactly how important this is. (hat tip to Prof. C. Dirt)

I've been known to use Kristen ITC, which is vaguely similar to, but more interesting that Comic Sans MS, but only in pursuit of mockery.

Following the links, I see that Comic Sans MS was created for MS Bob. shudder DIE COMIC SANS MS, DIE!!!

They're still using Bob's dog Rover. He cutely "scratches the ground" and sniffs during any file search on my XP. Most annoying!
