You see, I criticised the cardiff men's convention for using the font in a powerpoint presentation.
Comic Sans is, undoubtedly, hideous, but I have been reliably informed by Wifey that Comic Sans is the recommended font for use in education. Apparently, people with Dyslexia can read it easier than any other font (although I don't know whether that's been scientifically proven).
Anyway, I must hang my unintentionally-disability-hating head in shame. I am very very very sorry.
It will not happen again.
(although I still think Comic Sans is hideous)
