Cosmic Sans: The New Greatest Font!

Humble font bundle Aprils fool joke includes Cosmic Sans, Halfvetica and Times Old Roman.
They may be jokes but they're damned clever ones.

April Fools has been a bit bland this year. Google's far too literal mic drop aside, most have been played out reruns of previous gags or distinctly predicable. The US has gone in for the election, the UK has opted for the EU referendum. Still, amongst the banality are a couple of gems, foremost of which is the Humble Bundle's effort. Have the jokes been done before? Sure, but they're still done well, the format works and ultimately it's all for a good cause. Plus I'm generally intrigued to know what typing in Sans Sans would be like and can't help but feel that Bike Courier could be quite fun to play around with!
