A Sincere Improvement?

How about hacking a typewriter to use that much-maligned and little-loved typeface, Comic Sans?



Jesse England has done such a thing with his "Sincerity Machine" and though it may not score high for durability, it more than earns points for creativity. Type-modders, take note: DIY Fraktur may be within your grasp.

Interesting project. It should be noted that Royal offered a "Cartoon" typeface as an option on machines throughout the 1950's:
