Terrible Typography: The Battle Against Awful Fonts

I'm just gonna say it. I hate Papyrus. It's everywhere. From now until I get so tired of it that I go insane, I will document all the places that Papyrus pops up and haunts me. Exhibit A: I was having a wonderful time the Renaissance Festival with some friends this weekend when I see this.

I was just looking for some handmade jewelry and saw it.  I love Echo & Wild's silver jewelry, but frown upon their company identity.     Then today, I was reading a Game Informer magazine that came in the mail.  I was looking through it, just thumbing through and then set it down.  And guess what I saw on the cover?  The COVER! 
 

Dammit!  It's everywhere.  Maybe by documenting all the ways that this offensive font invades my life, I can convince at least one person to be more creative with their typography.    The battle has begun.

Amen, sister! I have had this exact rant before. Papyrus is a sin against typography.

I'm a typography-clueless person, so out of curiosity: What makes it so bad? I've love to understand why certain fonts are considered awful by typography experts.

I'll agree that Papyrus is over-used and just awful, but it pales in comparison to how truly vile Comic Sans is.
