Too bad you and your brother aren’t Bert and Ernie… Didja get that a lot as kids? BTW…. Two human thumbs up on today’s comic ‘strip’

I love that one, “Humans are lame, they believe in things like creationism…” if only more people thought like you, Bernie, the world would grow a little!

BTW not only should Comic Sans and Papyrus be banned, but also Bauhaus, Brush, Futura, Gill Sans Extra Bold and a few more… ;-)

Actually, there has beena “growing movement against Papyrus” since Papyrus was invented. It’s quite possibly one of the most wretched butt-ugly typefaces ever created. I wonder if it was created by a yoga teacher, or a Taos, NM shaman, because 96% of all Papyrus usage is by yoga studios, shamans and people who do teach “dolphin communication workshops”. Please let us never again mention this horrible contribution to modern typography. Maybe it will go the way of the dodo bird. Soon.

Did you know that there is a Klingon typeface? It is awesome. Maybe you should create a Predator typeface.

HA! Man, I loves me some font humor!

June 10, 2009 at 10:24 am

Bernie and Ernie?

Bernie & Ernie indeed, almost as funny and Bert & Ernie… almost. I happen to like Papyrus though, but in moderation ofcourse. Whatever happend to Stencil though, I miss that font so much…

June 10, 2009 at 8:45 pm

Abe is right.


June 10, 2009 at 11:41 pm

Neil, I have the Stencil font (from 8/18/99) email me and I’ll send you the Stencil.ttf

Hooked on fonts, thought it was just me. It . . . still may be.

At least my life is not as sad as getting obsessed with a font.

June 12, 2009 at 9:55 am


Ban a font???

Out there in the world, children are being raped and prostituted, people are murdered for trivial reasons, governments are enslaving nations, the world is falling to shit……. and people are instead campaigning against the ‘over-use’ of a typeface???!!!

Who cares, man?????!!!!!

In parts of London, you can buy child pornography on the street, in broad daylight, FFS!!
You’re telling me people will see this, look at the DVD and what? Complain that the seller used Comic Sans too often?

Someone shoot them, please!!!

/me calls bullshit on child porn in the street

Unless you’re talking about Brixton, of course. But that doesn’t really count.

Woody- its the small things that matter the most, you know?….

Sco33t – not to worry, I found!:D Cheers for the offer though.

June 12, 2009 at 6:47 pm

Since when does Abe have any issue with humans? He does realize all those pretty girls he’s trying to score with are humans, doesn’t he?

June 12, 2009 at 6:53 pm

I like Papyrus, but agree that it is overused, and used inappropriately. Same with Copperplate Gothic. I recently saw an ad that used both of them together. Now that’s just worng.

June 12, 2009 at 7:20 pm

It burns.

Also, I agree that Preston is looking smooth.

June 13, 2009 at 12:27 am

i only discovered ALP 2 days ago and i have finished reading them all already (would have been quicker but you know work and the like) YOU NEED MORE… MAKE MORE QUICKLY i’m going to be suffering withdrawals please feed my addiction

June 14, 2009 at 7:43 pm

My girlfriend has been appalled for years by the misuse of both comic sans and papyrus. It has only been in the last 2 years she discovered that lots of other people out there feel similarly. So, in at least one case, someone did not know there was a bandwagon to jump on.

June 17, 2009 at 4:41 am

Grim – I work with Trading Standards Officers in Harrow – We sieze DVDs like this from street sellers quite regularly, I’m afraid. Animal porn, too.

These typefaces can’t be so overused – I hardly even noticed Papyrus until it was used on Firefly!!

GODDAMMIT! Preston’s stupid suit.
