Helvetica -- The font you hate to love (Yes, that means you Elisabeth -- To those of you who are unaware, I happen to adore Helvetica while other companions of mine share different feelings about the oh so versatile type face). Moving along, here's one more reason to hate it (well not hate it... hate is a very strong word, how about we say here's something to get you all grumpy over?): Google straight up fooled you today. How? Just type in "Helvetica" into Google.

Substituting the world's most functional font -- Helvetica -- for the world's most horrendous font -- Comic Sans -- had to be one of the funniest moments in Google history. How very sweet. NOT! We should all tell Google that bing is looking mighty fine these days (not really)..but you get the gist. April Fools!
So if you:
A.) Are laughing right now -- laugh on (I still have yet to recover)...
B.) Have no idea what I'm talking about -- then we can't be friends
C.) Good bye
D.) I guess you can redeem your friendship by watching this
Till next time,
