I thought this article from The Onion would be amusing to Typophile readers.
I have to say that, while it's kind of funny, the piece misses the mark in several respects. While Times New Roman is overused and plain, I don't think many find it as offensive as, say, Comic Sans MS, ITC Garamond, or Helvetica. Also, the selection of "Cheltanham" [sic] as the font of choice seems wrong, unless you're a stuffy Easterner who reads nothing but The New York Times. :-)
