So we have CSS Naked day (apr 9), and talk like a pirate day (Sept 19) and even Zombie Crawl day (Props to Danny!) and just to show that we need to not take ourselves so seriously all the time, I’m starting national Comic Sans day.
Yup, damn straight, National. Comic. Sans. Day.
Why? Because we really do take ourselves too seriously. Just look at this google search. Sure we all have our ‘thing’ but something in those results tells me, that there’s a lot of us that take fonts too seriously. Feel free to try and explain why font face is the single most important thing in marketing and delivers a message without actually saying anything etc, etc, Sorry it’s marketing claptrap, but you’re welcome to try and enlighten me.
Solution? As with any situation where people are taking something too seriously, we’ll go extreme opposite, and just bask in it, and enjoy making fun of ourselves. It’s simple enough to do, simply replace your style sheet font references to all Comic Sans.
It’s one day, and meant to be a fun poke at our selves and take a day off of obsessing over the existance of Comic Sans as a font. Hate it, love it, couldn’t care less about it, on October 1 let’s all enjoy a day of Comic Sans, just a day, it’s not gonna kill ya.
