Helvetica is an incredibly well made font and is extremely useful in a lot of design situations. Because of that fact EVERYONE uses it. Everyone. Every. One. Hence the inclusion on many "Most Hated" lists.
I just had a client request to use Comic Sans on his business cards. On his BUSINESS CARDS! A business card is, in most cases, the first impression that a potential customer will get about your company. You want it to be as professional as possible. Or, at the very least, you don't want it to look like it was done in Crayon by your 3-year-old niece.
In honor of my current twitchiness, I thought I would share a bit of font and typeface humor that I have collected over the years.

|Helvetica Makes Me Sick.|
|This is for using Comic Sans, you bastard!|
|Papyrus, Comic Sans, Times New Roman.|
|Comic Sans is no joke.|
|Papyrus is the worst font.|
|I think you are more perfect than Helvetica.|
|I shot the serif.|
|Hobo, Comic Sans, Papyrus.|
