Doc Searls freudian slip in "cute font" shocker

Doc Searls must be unaware of the ban comic sans campaign.
Also, note the delightful freudian slip from a recent blog conference.
I didn't use Comic Sans. The font was Marker Felt, which is an Apple font, and just as politically incorrect, I suppose.
If my Thinkpad had a Power Adapter that worked in Europe, I might have done the talk in Open Office on Linux, with some open source font. But alas.
Is this a case of "nobody gets Scandinavian tongue in cheek" ?
Politically correct doesn't enter into it. It's just that people who think so think that the cuteness of "freehand" fonts kills the message they're trying to convey.
