The Tale Of Helvetica & Comic Sans

I thought this community might be interested in The Tale of Helvetica & Comic Sans by Bertie Wells. Is there a pending class war represented by those that use Helvetica in their work and those that use Comic Sans?

Here's the video on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsZGXf9ecoM
Here's the song on Bandcamp: http://bertiewells.bandcamp.com/track/the-tale-of-helvetica-comic-sans

And some of us don't mingle with either demographic!

The really-really scary thing is that the Comic Sans users are the one that mess about with the really-really big Doomsday Machine... y'know... that Large Kitty Collider thingamajig at CERN.

Painful. 3 out of 10. Might have been funny in 2005.

Té Rowan - That is a true and scary point you've made! Government desktop publishing is probably where Comic Sans really got it's big break! :)

That the use of Comic Sans by the people who mess about with the Doomsday machine of any relevance is interesting. Would it be different if they if they used a 'respectable' font? Or Papyrus?
