Ironic Invasions and Muzzies

The Case of Comic Sans

Comic Sans makes you look like an idiot

This is Comic Sans.  It’s not such a bad font, right?  WRONG (apparently).  The general consensus towards Comic Sans is that it is ridiculous, obnoxious and loathsome.

In the digital age, the biggest barrier to communication is information overload. Forget the Dow Jones; we operate in an attention economy. Selective Attention shares the things worth paying for.
