Via The Ministry of Type, it seems that a bunch of people are trying to create a new accessible typeface: Serious Sans aims to take Comic Sans as a base and then improve on it.
Now that's what I call "polishing a turd."
P.S. I feel that I should point out that calling Comic Sans "a turd" is a bit... well... it's a bit like calling Gordon Brown "an incompetent, vindictive, vicious, evil monocular cuntrag".
In other words, the applied phrase is just utterly inadequate for the purposes of describing how utterly shite it really is.
P.P.S. Yes, the above postscript really was just put in for the sole purpose of having a gratuitous dig at Gordon Brown. But I've just filled my car again and, frankly, I felt like kicking our bastard Prime Minister.
