Comic Sans goes into a bar, and the barman says, "We don't serve your type."

This is Comic Sans. To me, it looks like something a child would write with a marker pen. It irks me because I see so many places use this font in the belief the font looks carefree and fun, compared to the snootier fonts like Times New Roman, Arial or Georgia. The problem is, Comic Sans is generally found on very unprofessional and lazy things - be it a poster, a t-shirt or a website some kid knocked together in 20 minutes; it's an overused and unpleasant font and it makes things look cheap and nasty when it's used because of it.

Here's a pic of the font, in case you don't have Comic Sans on your machine.

There are websites that want this font eradicated. That's a little further than I'd go. After all, if it disappears you lose the easiest way to identify the work of an amateur at a glance. But... that's just me. Anyway, opinions of the font, please!
