Comic Sans, official font of the Holy See


While Mashable’s Alex Fitzpatrick was mulling over the high points of the man formerly known as Pope Benedict XVI’s reign, he noticed something funny, other than the bubble car and snazzy headgear: the entire album was narrated using Comic Sans.

Now, when the papacy signed onto Twitter, we were pretty sure they were with the program, at least as the program’s been written since 1998, but someone forgot to inform the Vatican that Comic sans is not the way to go in the modern world.

Suffice it to say, whoever let this Internet design faux pas happen is going straight to hell or the Catholic Church is going to try dragging us all back a few decades whether we want it or not.

Better than a few centuries, right?

Holy typography.
