UPDATE: Vincent Connare, the creator of Comic Sans, supports the #ComicCerns campaign.

We were all moved by Dr Fabiola Gianotti's incredibly strange choice of font in announcing the recent results of Cern's ATLAS collaboration and feel that her use of Comic Sans has gone a long way to rehabilitate this awful, awful font.

In recognition of the work of Professors Peter Higgs, François Englert and Robert Brout and others in the description of the Higgs mechanism by which vector bosons gain mass by interacting with the Higgs field; and in recognition of the work of the scientists and engineers at Cern's Large Hadron Collider, in particular the members of the ATLAS and CMS collaborations, in their search for the Higgs boson, the quantum of the Higgs field; we believe that Microsoft should rename 'Comic Sans' to 'Comic Cerns' in Windows 8 and in future releases of the Windows operating system. Renaming Comic Sans to 'Comic Cerns' would be a unique way of recognising the groundbreaking achievements of these scientists and engineers.
