As if it wasn’t bad enough that Comic Sans exists at all, now the Angry Birds of typefaces has been released as Comic Sans Pro. Now you can make so many more languages look like a child is speaking to you. Perfect for annual reports! $120 (not kidding) gets you two weights with swashes, small caps, non-Latin character sets, lining and non-lining numerals, and other assorted nonsense. Seriously, swashes?

As an added irritant, this will doubtless be the typeface that gets the general public to sit up and notice OpenType features. So awesome.
