God Particle Not Found by CERN, Finds Comic-Sans Instead


Share this Post

CERN is an organization which can be accredited for bringing us the internet via Tim Berners-Lee, along with other scientific and technological advancements. Lately, they've been utilizing their Large Hadron Collider, the world's largest particle accelerator to find the higgs boson. Which is also called the "god particle".

You would think an organization dealing with something like the higgs boson has professional presentations with sleek and stylish designs. Or they could present a slideshow using Comic-Sans as the font. As proven by this photo, and tweet from the person who looks to have discovered the font use first.

Not sure whether they've found the Higgs Boson, but it's clear that they haven't discovered PowerPoint 2010. #CERN http://t.co/oIRoHi6v 1 day ago via Twitpic · powered by @socialditto

The photo and knowledge of CERN, the organization with some of the most brilliant minds in the world using Comic-Sans, has led to ridicule from not just people on Twitter but other sources as well. The most interesting being this YouTube video, which I have no words to describe. Apparently, God is a hipster in sunglasses.

Here's some other funny reactions from Twitter users, poking fun at the group of people who could easily wipe us all out.

CERN, the creators of the Large Hadron Collider, have used Comic Sans on their presentation. I don't want to live on this planet any more. 1 day ago via Mobile Web · powered by @socialditto

I'm pretty sure the Nobel Committee will take @CERN's use of Comic Sans into consideration when they award the next prize. Not looking good. 1 day ago via web · powered by @socialditto

The CERN team's slides appear to be using Comic Sans. There is no God. #Higgs 1 day ago via TweetDeck · powered by @socialditto

If I may interject, I think we're being a little hard on CERN here. These people are trying to unlock the mysteries of the universe, not impress us with their amazing design choices during their presentation. However, you would think an organization which is looking into these mysteries would know Comic-Sans can stir up enough rage to make their LHC look like a pop-gun. They might find solace within the walls of the Comic-Sans Project though.
