What poster viewers are thinking

There was a very small but high powered poster session this week. I wasn’t personally there, but a few photos found their way out, and here’s what I expect the viewer is thinking as he looks at some of these posters.

“Is that Comic Sans?”
“Couldn’t they have put the interesting data near the top of the poster?”
“Does everything have to be in a separate box?”
Whoops, forgot to mention who was in the audience above, looking at the posters...
