IIRC Gary Gray has gone some steps in this direction, by providing a  
method for using LaTeXiT to typeset equations with Comic Sans and  
then include the equations in Keynote presentations whose  
"BlackBoard" theme (I don't remember the exact name) is based on  
Comic Sans.

Hpwever, again IIRC, Gary's method involved XeLaTeX, not standard LaTeX.

All this subject to Gary's confirmation: that was some time back (at  
the time of Keynote 1) and I've not tried Gary's method at the time  
and then I forgot about it; your question brought it back to mind.
