In this classic opening to The Canterbury Tales, Chaucer was of course alluding to TS Eliot's poem The Waste Land. And Eliot himself was exploring how the internet of the 21st century would both enable and undermine discourse and democracy.

Anyway, Stack Overflow, the Q&A site where I find all my coding answers, looked like it had been forced to restore from 1990s backups:

In the beginning there was Comic Sans,
And it was without form, and void;
And darkness was upon the face of the font.

And God said, Let there be Arial Light: and there was Arial Light.
And God saw Arial Light, that it was good: and God divided the professional fonts from the joke fonts.
