I mean, what the heck were those people thinking when they ordered these gravestones? Were they thinking at all or did they just want to ridicule the deceased? Anyway, I hope their ghosts do a good deal of haunting the ones responsible for this.

Maybe, we all just have to give in to this obvious trend of typographic dementia. So this is how the next version of ContentSieve will look like:

ContentSieve Comic Sans

ContentSieve Comic Sans

Isn’t that beautiful?

PS: Have a look at Ban Comic Sans for more detailed information on Comic Sans in general and why it should be banned in particular.
