Lonelysandwich on IKEA's decision to switch to Verdana.

"Friendly and readable, but a little bit simple, in the way you’d say a person is simple, but only behind his back. A good listener, but not much of a talker. I guess what I’m trying to say is I want a typeface to take control of a situation. Smack me around a little and tell me what’s wrong with my body, then sell me a TV stand and make me assemble it myself without any tools or clothes, all the while throwing meatballs and lingonberry at my problem areas." – lonelysandwich

FYI - If you don't listen to You Look Nice Today with lonelysandwich, scottsimpson, and hotdogsladies, you are seriously missing out. My god, they're funny.
