Maybe there should have been two Daniels back to back?

1=Daniel San
2=Daniel Sans

Also, if you have Greasemonkey, you can install this userscript to make all text on your browser Comic Sans!

If sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, surely font humor is the nerdiest.

Ah, you THINK the red is just plain red, but really it is super-undercover-stealth red, like Daniel himself.

No, the one I just received in my Random Shirt bag beats it by a mile--The building that turns into a robot from Big beats it by a mile. By the way--I love the abject obscurity of the robot shirt AND the status that goes with wearing the worst-selling Woot shirt ever.

Bringin' the hatin':

Awful concept.

Not really a pun.

The form of expression in Karate Kid would have been Daniel-san.

Sans (as in the font) means "without." The ordinary usage of "sans" requires mentioning the missing thing (as in sans serif, sans pants, or as an actual witty person pointed out up-thread sans hands and feet [which would have been funny, punny and subtle]).

Reference to the missing serifs is omitted by convention in "Comic Sans," but what is Daniel missing here???

"Sans" used as a combining-form supposed pun on the Japanese familiar term "san?" Well, it doesn't work. At all.

To make things worse, there is a real live person named Daniel Sans. But he's not relevant.

Mega fail.

That said, this shirt bugs me too much to buy--I pronounce sans as rhyming with cans, and Daniel-San would rhyme with pawn.



Pretty sure "sans" is a French word meaning without - in this case, referring to the lack of serifs on the font - and would thus be pronounced correctly for the joke to work.

Also, since it's French, you wouldn't really pronounce the s anyway, so Daniel-san and Daniel Sans would be pretty much the same thing, albeit the former would be said with a Japanese accent and the latter with a French accent.

Either way, I'm not planning on buying the shirt, but the joke is glorious.

I'm guessing this doesn't bode well for the chances my "Drag Me To Helvetica" shirt will print any time soon.

Pfft, if that's the Karate Kid (Danielsan-style), then where's the blood dripping from his face? Everybody knows that, like Rocky before him, Daniel preferred to block with his face.

Says the pronunciation is "sanz".

Must buy. My husband calls our son Daniel-san. And I complain about comic sans every chance I get. But can I handle seeing it on my kid's chest? Hmm...

I guess I'll have to speak up for stuffy old pedants everywhere: Comic Sans is not a font, it is a typeface. Comic Sans bold is a font within the typeface family of Comic Sans. There, I said it!

By displaying comic sans with one of the greatest moves in a motion picture since the Road House Heart Scene, makes me want to not only wear this shirt but write everything I can in this font style.

Exactly! They AREN'T pronounced the same.

Which is hardly a fatal flaw for a pun, but I ask again:

* We know what's "sans" in Comic Sans -- serifs.
* What is Daniel missing here to complete the pun?

I'd say what's missing is something comic.
