Parliament to have more caps, less impact.

Parliament to have more caps, less impact.

NEW DELHI: Lok Sabha speaker Mr. Balayogi has come down strongly on house members who insist on using Impact to get across their point. “The current trend of using uppercase Impact for dramatic effect is most disturbing. Kindly desist from using it while discussing matters of national importance and confine yourselves to something less obvious like Arial or Times New Roman,” Mr. Balayogi ruled.

Speaking in alternately in Book Antiqua and Goudy Heavyface, CPI(M) leader Mr. Somnath Chatterjee protested that neither Arial nor Times New Roman reflected the true aspirations of the Indian people. “while arial is cold and corporate, times new roman cruelly mocks the masses with its elitist elegance. i submit that only courier new has enough bureaucratic splendour to express the quiet desperation of the indian ethos,” he observed. The speaker then questioned Mr. Chatterjee as to why he was not using capitals for pronouns and while beginning sentences. A defiant Mr. Chatterjee then held up a copy of Das Capital and thundered, “because i’m not a stinking capitalist, thats why”. Pandemonium ensued, with members rushing to the well of the house chanting slogans in Garamond and Tigerteeth. It was then up to Mr. Vajpayee who muttered something witty in Comic Sans MS, provoking peals of laughter even from the opposition benches. Mrs. Sonia Gandhi was heard to titter in Helvetica. The MPs finally adopted a resolution to refrain from using Impact and to be more case sensitive in future.
