The problem with Comic Sans is not that it is not Helvetica, Times Roman, or Garamond, et cetera. The problem is that its application range as an informal handprinted type is also very limited; it's not even an acceptable comic word balloon typeface, for example.

So, Comic Sans, you just go off with Papyrus - and get stuffed.

And using Papyrus on a menu is how many lost points ?

Can't really blame CS and Papyrus for going off and glugging down a few Elefants.
