    Personally Im rather fond of Verdana.

    Also Comic Sans is'nt all that bad...

    But Sanjay, If you are getting tired of writing and would prefer to type. May I suggest Humor-Sans.
    (even its name is a pun!)

    I'll let you guess its origin though, it should be obvious enough i think...

    You know what I've always liked?
    Tempus Sans ITC.
    I don't know why.
    Also, I hate Papyrus.

    I used to think Papyrus was so cool when I was in middle school.

    I think I used to like it when I was about 9 years old. But then I realized that it is so overused, and it is NOT luxurious.

    Well, back when I was in middle school we were writing on actual papyrus, so the font had more charm.

    I bet everyone had to memorize that font, huh? You make one mistake with that ink, and man. It's all over.

    I had a hard time learning to write in the script form of hebrew after years of reading the printed font, because they don't look alike. We used sheepskin though, not papyrus :P

    Even when in the days when I liked Papyrus the most, I never understood why it had such tiny exclamation points.

    Well, geez. l wrote with charcoal on cave walls. All I ever seemed to be able to do was draw antelope and spears. Britney Spears.

    I'm not much of a history buff, but which ancient civilization is Comic Sans from?

    It's from the Renaissance. Everyone was doing fruity stuff with writing in those days.

    I can't imagine writing on fruit would have much longevity.

    Unless fruit was a euphemism :O

    I'm partial to Courier New. I use it when I'm talking about serious business.

    So for you, Courier New means that it's business time?

    And really, what isn't a euphemism?

    Courier New means it's serious business time. I use Times New Roman and Arial for regular business.

    I also sometimes use Courier New when I'm pretending to be a robot. It's a very robot-y font.

    I once took a graphic design course, and the instructor seemed to have a penchant for Helvetica, but what do academics know about business, serious or otherwise?

    What's that one that's a lot like IMPACT but sounds a bit like Eva Herzegovina?

    The John Lennon font at dafont.com is easily the coolest and most evocative handwriting emulation I've ever seen.

    I'm proud to say I nailed that cheese vs. font game. For those of you looking for more, I suggest the rather difficult font game: http://fontgame.ilovetypography.com/
