Those are the most boring fonts I’ve ever stumbled across! They’re probably exciting to Angela from The Office, though…

I don’t think so that those kinds of font are boring because for me they are for professional types of website to be used on. Fonts are really important because they represent how your site would be if it is intended for entertainment or professional. To choose a good font is one of the critical ways for a web designer.
