Messages That Lose their Effectiveness When Written In Comic Sans – Todd’s Top Six

Everyday my immediate supervisor (whose name, Rik Mikals, shall remain nameless) sends us an e-mail with words of wisdom in hopes of inspiring us.  They are often tidbits from some of the greatest thinkers, businessmen and leaders in the history of man.  Albert Einstein, Voltaire, Mary Kay…  You get the drill.
What I find funny is that he exclusively uses the font known as “Comic Sans”. I'm sure you've seen it.  It looks like text from a comic book or like a child's handwriting done with crayon.
Needless to say, the positive message that is to be relayed is sometimes lost on me because of the juvenile nature of the script.
After reading this essay, I thought what other messages, MUCH more important than a daily devotional, might lose their effectiveness if they too were writtenusing Comic Sans.
Here are my top six:
