Is it at all possible that Comic Sans is uncool it's now cool?

This seems weird, but I think it looks quite good on this page! I'm goin nuts.

I don't hate Comic Sans as much as the President font:

It's ugly and quite popular in posters etc.

I've noticed Comic Sans in Google Ads at, too. Thought it was a joke to bother the nerds. :)

I like Comic Sans because the characters are distinct. Arial and Times New Roman both have non-distinct characters that create unnecessary confusion (1 i I l O 0 etc). Tahoma is much better for distinct characters.
