The 404 263: Where Comic Sans is a poor excuse for a font

On today's show we tackle the hard issues and correct a few mistakes, like coming down too hard on Obama for screwing up the Presidential Oath.


Comic Sans really is a terrible look for a font. It might've been cool to write an essay about Christopher Columbus in it in third grade, but now it makes you seem uneducated. Do like Obama and stick with Helvetica or Georgia. Anyway, on today's show we tackle the hard issues and correct a few mistakes, like coming down too hard on Obama for screwing up the Presidential Oath. Also, a rather large helping of Calls from the Public calling Wilson out on his b.s.--no surprise there! (Wilson's note: Just because Jeff and Justin don't believe it, doesn't mean I'm wrong. Here's a link to the Florida gun law and here's a link to the voter turnout issue.)

(Justin's note: Shut up Wilson)

Okay, we may have gotten ahead of ourselves on Episode 261 . Like an overly aggressive parent, Jeff and I (Justin) might've been too hard on the little guy after he botched the inauguration oath. Turns out Chief Justice John Roberts, the guy reciting the speech for Obama to repeat, messed up a few of the words and even switched some around, causing our would-be Pres (now Pres!) to speak too soon. Okay, Barack, we'll give you the benefit of the doubt; you were set up to screw up. Plus you were probably nervous--anyone in that situation would be! At least they did a redo, but this time sans bible. Let's just blame the whole thing on Roberts, now known to the popular media as the "Oaf of Office." *Queue rimshot*
