Dear World: Stop Using Papyrus, We’re Begging You
Don't be on the wrong side of font history.

And we've been pretty good about it. But there's a typeface that's been creeping its way into our daily lives and it needs to be stopped immediately. It's called Papyrus.

OK, fine. You got me there.
But any other use of it is NOT OK.
