Comic Sans and Curlz MT Should Die

Posted 8 years ago by Evan Tishuk

What if fonts are real people who meet at a secret font conference to discuss font business? Watch and see how Baskerville Old Face chides the whipper-snappers.

Awesome. The only improvement I'd make is a cameo by my best friend Trebuchet, sitting beside a morose Tahoma (sad because his star is fading).

I was thinking Trebuchet could actually have a barrage of medieval siege weapons at the ready. Or, if budget was a big concern (I hear authentic trebuchets are expensive), just a guy with a sling shot and a chip on his shoulder. Also, it would have been awesome if Helvetica made an appearance as a Swiss modernist wearing all black and speaking in short pointed sentences. Or, because it's ubiquitous, Helvetica could have a "Being John Malkovich" moment when he meets Arial. That would be a great follow up.

Whomever created those two fonts should be indicted under the Gustav act.
