Do they have Winnie The Pooh pyjamas?

It's not RIGHT, is it?

I used to use it on MSN. blush

I HAVEN'T IN YEARS.

Please don't hate me.

grin

And I did used to have WTP pyjamas.

Oh, the shame.

YANBU odd hmm

Bleatblurt Fri 11-Sep-09 22:11:37

Comic Sans in red too.

<<waits for banning from MN>>

They're just a few years out of date. It was quite cool for a while way back when.

Wasn't it?

And I haven't quite worked out what I should use instead. So when I come across it in old work stuff just change it all to Gill Sans.

YANBU, winnie the poo sucks cock.

Rachmumoftwo Fri 11-Sep-09 22:14:06

I use it but only because it is a child-friendly font- would never use it for grown-up stuff though!

random Fri 11-Sep-09 22:14:23

Its just wrong ditto any item of Winnie the Pooh clothing

nevergoogledragonbutter Fri 11-Sep-09 22:14:34

eh, what, who said that?

<goes for a lie down>

Rachmumoftwo Fri 11-Sep-09 22:14:44

OMG Winnie the Pooh does what??!! I never knew!

Bleatblurt Fri 11-Sep-09 22:15:49

WTP is GAY? shock

Tis him and piglet. I knew it.

Ewe Fri 11-Sep-09 22:16:50

YANBU at all, really annoys me!

Feenie Fri 11-Sep-09 22:17:29

I use Comic Sans.

I am a primary teacher, though...grin

Am very fond on Snap ITC, too....

KembleTwins Fri 11-Sep-09 22:18:34

Oh god. I do that. Um <<hastily thinking of excuses>> Must be because I did everything in comic sans when I was teaching full time. Shit. Will stop now. What's a more grown up font? Do I have to do everything Times New Roman? Perhaps it would be easier to just buy some WTP pyjamas.

Ninks Fri 11-Sep-09 22:18:35

YANBU! It is a fact of life that it is a font used by primary schools and people obsessed with soft toys.

Feenie Fri 11-Sep-09 22:18:42

In my defence, there aren't many fonts which do a proper lower case 'a' (< not like that one over there).

SomeGuy Fri 11-Sep-09 22:19:17

Winnie The Pooh takes it up the shitter? With honey for lube?

Umlellala Fri 11-Sep-09 22:19:23

I hate Comic Sans ( I may have posted about this before). It makes my teeth hurt.

I hate it when adults use it.

I hate it when it's used for children's work or in schools.

I hate it when it's used on logos (how cheap does it make your business look?).

I really, really hate it.

So no, YA DEFINITELY NBU.

Ninks Fri 11-Sep-09 22:19:55

Kemble, I think there may be a market for Comic Sans pyjamas!

MollieO Fri 11-Sep-09 22:21:22

I use Comic Sans and I don't where PJs so there grin. I don't have any soft toys either. What is wrong with it?

Bleatblurt Fri 11-Sep-09 22:21:42

Did you know that you can change your posts to Comic Sans on Bounty?

I think that explains it all now. grin

notevenamousie Fri 11-Sep-09 22:21:58

Depends on the context, surely, as to whether you are being entirely reasonable or merely a bit grouchy.

Feenie Fri 11-Sep-09 22:22:53

Find us another font which has a proper round 'a' for those children who have just learned to recognise it then, Umlellala, before you start dissing schools!
