I can't photograph an original, for obvious reasons, but I've seen Child Protection minutes regularly produced in Comic Sans Bold.

The camp I used to work at needed to overhaul the Pool Rules sign. Originally, it was your standard driftwood plank with the rules carved into it. It made for a great display.

Well, when they got it redesigned, they did only one thing right: They made the rules positive (i.e. "Only walk" in place of "Don't run.")

The sign was entirely Comic Sans. I wish I got a picture of it before I left.

Howdy—just discovered this group after writing a blog entry blasting Comic Sans. I work in biomedical research and often attend international scientific meetings. Can't tell you how many times I've seen highly technical presentation titles in Comic Sans emblazoned across the top of a research poster.

You're mentioning some quite interesting uses here! Scientific presentations are seen too often in Comic Sans, but a grave!

Speaking of graves, I was walking on a newly renovated area by the beach about 2 hours from where I live at the weekend. There were some new memoiral benches, so I went over to have a closer look, and wished I hadn't:

I would be turning in my grave if that was mine!

Funny are business cards where Comic Sans serif is used.
Doctors use CS a lot for signs in waiting rooms, etc.

Maybe off-topic, but what I hate most "fun mails" with comic sans serif and animated smiley gifs.

btw, great group. is there a group about "ms word art"?

bimbeskanzler has taken an excellent photo of a gravestone carved in Comic Sans. It is even for a doctor.

Papers documenting the conditions that Omar Khadr, the only Canadian being held at Gitmo (where he's been since he was arrested after 9/11 when he was 15) has been living under, which include being sleep-deprived, among other things, were released today.

Notwithstanding the charges he was taken in for have been disproved, or the portions that were blacked out for security purposes, the stuff they showed on our evening news was in Comic Sans.

I got all the tax paperwork back from my accountant a few years ago with a pre-addressed envelope. The address for the IRS was printed in Comic Sans. I used a different envelope, and I don't use that accountant anymore.

The title of the webpage of "Design Rationale" research group at MIT CSAIL. Seeing the words "Design Rationale" in that god forsaken non-font made me cry for a little.

Maybe not THEE most inappropriate use ever but... when we had teacher reviews handed out to us at the end of last term I burst out laughing in the middle of class when I saw that the 2 page long, (standard department wide) review was entirely in Comic Sans. The part that made it so funny? This is for the Art/ Graphic Design department. And I don't think it was meant to be ironic.

I wish I'd gotten a picture, because the latest version is in a typeface that actually makes some sort of sense... but several years ago, the Georgia driving manual was set entirely in Comic Sans.
