The answer is Comic Sans. Comic Sans was originally designed by Vincent Connare (hired by Microsoft) to create a child-friendly font that would be used in speech bubbles on the beta version of Microsoft Bob. Many have viewed the font as good for communicating ideas to children. The typefaces popularity quickly grew, however, and it became so widespread and misused (as you can see from the photos above) that it has acquired a real nefarious reputation as the worlds worst (ugliest and most misused) font.
