Nothing says ‘professional law firm’ like Comic Sans


Yeah, so, I saw this sign on BART, and no … just no. Come on. Really?


First of all, if you are a law firm, you probably shouldn’t use snakes in your ad. A lot of folks think lawyers are snakes. This is not helping.

Second, why is there an extra space in “We’ve”? Oh, and there’s a Lot of random Capitalization going On Here. You’re placing an ad on BART, where thousands of people will see it. Maybe you should get someone to proofread it for you.

Third, I’m pretty sure that font is Comic Sans, and nothing says “professional law firm” like Comic Sans.

That is all.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. So the joke is they haven’t handled snakes? Doesn’t that only mean that they aren’t an Appalachian religion? Bad ad. Bad ad, indeed.

  2. Why is “it” not capitalized? Holy cow. I suck at proof reading and I could put together a better ad than this.

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
