Anyone writing with an instrument this ugly who isn’t either a) getting paid ungodly amounts of money to do so, or b) being threatened with physical violence, needs to have her/his head examined. Pronto.
Granted, not every single daily task needs to be completed using the latest (?) in design-conscious utensils/tools. But for the love of all that is holy, folks — do have a little pride in what you write with, will ya?
(And no, that’s not a typo up there.)
