Netizens point out Comic Sans font in Sen. Villanueva’s photo of his alleged authorization letter

The senator tweeted the photo to point out that he was never a representative of Buhay Partylist but netizens noticed more that the word “Authorization” was in Comic Sans font!

After Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales ordered the dismissal of Senator Joel Villanueva from public service due to his alleged anomalous use of “pork barrel” funds when he was still a congressman; the senator went out to Twitter to reveal that he was never a Buhay Partylist representative as to what was written in the letter.


But what caught the attention of netizens was the Comic Sans font used in the word “Authorization” in the letter.

We know Halloween’s over but this might work!

Authorization 5


And finally, this one that never failed to be our favorite “AHRT” when we were in grade school.
