Pull over! Design police is here!

Bad boys, bad boys, what'cha gonna do, what'cha gonna do when they come for you? The Design Police are here and they will cover your documents with screaming red alerts pointing out all the mistakes you've made. You too can be a design police deputy, download the visual enforcement kit and stick it to bad design. *

    The world has needed this for a long, long time. Of course, it's all fun and games until your own work gets red-stickered.

    They even have one for Comic Sans. Looks like they thought of everything.

    I put some on my own work. I'm a psuedo-masochist. Pretend to spank me.

    Speaking as a proofreader, I'm slightly saddened not to be mentioned in the collection. "Use spellcheck" isn't the same, you know.

    But hilarious!

    Hehe, true. You must go nuts reading articles where spellcheck has left in a correctly spelled word, just the wrong one which I see all the time.
