A designer’s worst nightmare

Heehee. A London agency has created the funniest of all bookmarklets. Happpy It is a tool that lets you commit the ultimate design sin on any website you like: turn it into Comic Sans.

Comic Sans is funny. Impossible to take seriously, even. So why not read The New York Times in Comic Sans? Why not Comic Sans-ify us?

“Times are hard,” says Poke London. “We decided to make a little something to perk everyone up.”

What could be better than turning the internetz into the silliest font of all time? Um, nothing. We’ll let Poke explain further.

“As the global recession wears on longer than an Oscar speech, the news is filled with misery, and the weather remains worth complaining about, we thought it was time for a little tear wiping. A little ‘there, there. It’s going to be all right.’”

Just as it’s impossible to be unhappy in a poncho, it’s impossible to be worried in Comic Sans.

Give it a go.
