    Great freaking issue as usual!

  2. Josh M. says:

    Tim, you stole my shirt? I doubt it would even fit you!

  3. Vincent says:

    What Tim isn’t telling you is that he has a T-Shirt that says “<- I’m with Comic Sans.”

  4. Timothy says:

    Betz – this ought to explain it.

    Although, to be more verbose, Comic Sans is the devil. It is Satan, Beelzebub, the Dark One — the source of all misery and suffering. It is the Prince of Lies, and of Darkness. Comic Sans tempts us into sin, turns us against one another, and wishes to ensure our fall from grace. The Dark Magicks that created it passed out of the world long ago, but still it sits out in the darkness waiting.

    It waits for “whimsical” soccer moms in need of party invitations. It waits for Administrative Assistants who know not what they do and merely wish to inform the office about delicious cake. It temps them to use a font that is “fun” and “unexpected”, but soon they find only despair. They learn that it is trite, ugly, that from the deep recesses of the universe it will blacken their soul. Once you have been touched by its taint, there is no escaping the evil which emminates from Comic Sans. We must be ever vigilant, lest the world fall into chaos.

  5. Betz says:

    I don’t get it with you journalist and layout types … whats wrong with Comic Sans? Is Ariel sans-serif 11pt still cool?

  6. Kai Davis says:


    At least it wasn’t Hobo Standard.

  7. Timothy says:

    Looks solid, but I want you to know something.

    Comic Sans – if you place it in the magazine again, I will bend the very fabric of the universe so that I might unleash fury upon not only you, but also your relations past and present. You will be stretched out infinitely along the along the event horizon of the new paradoxical nexus I have created so that for all of time you will listen to Gilbert Gottfried and Fran Drescher read Beowulf aloud. Your physical body will be tortured beyond all human imagining, such that after eons and eons pathetic human words like “suffering” and “pain” will cease to have any meaning at all.

    In short: I will end you.

  8. C.T. Behemoth says:

    Great article Vincent.

  9. Kai Davis says:

    Holy shit LOL Dotters Katz is a great idea. I think we kicked that around when we were still The Weekly Enema, but you guys did a great job at it.
