Poll: Imagine that Comic Sans and Papyrus are already gone. If you could eradicate one more font from the face of the Earth, it would be:
  • 4.9% - Mistral 49
  • 7.7% - Zapf Chancery 77
  • 18.7% - Lucida Handwriting 186
  • 1.3% - Lithos 13
  • 26.7% - Jokerman 265
  • 12.2% - Impact 121
  • 24.3% - anything that looks like an old typewriter 242
  • 4.1% - Another one I'll rage about in the comments 41
994 votes

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I voted Mistral, but my real vote is CURLZ. Kill yourself, Curlz. Kill yourself.

Am I the only person sick to death of Helvetica? Maybe it's just because one of the organizations I work for uses it.... Good organization, but really I could go without looking at that board straight font anymore.

I wish Arial would die. It has cheapened all the good sans-serif typefaces.

Wingdings; it looks like Alien gibberish! I mean really, who uses it and why?

Don't hate on Courier, fixed width fonts have their place.

Definitely Wingdings. I have too many nasty memories of starting to use a computer to write papers and not being able to touch-type yet. I'd look up at the screen and it would just be lines of gibberish.

Every font has it's place, even Comic Sans and Papyrus.

Except Jokerman. Jokerman can die in a fire.

Comic Sans is already banned by the Geneva Convention, isn't it?

It's kind of a toss up between times new roman and wingdings, but all those fonts like electroharmonix that try to use Japanese or Chinese characters to write Roman letters are super annoying too.

Tahoma! It's so jittery-looking, makes me feel like I have a headache.

This is an interesting change in disappointments.
