I must make an allusion to Goofus & Gallant at least once a month on average. It's nice when I'm able to make those allusions for people who aren't then all like 'what the fuck are you talking about?'.

Memes are an excellent vehicle for learning social norms. Better that than raising selfish oafs and boors.

I imagine Goofus and Gallant will win, but Hidden Pictures were a godsend to give me a ten-minute break when I was teaching English to classes of young children

Bound to be Goofus and Gallant in a walk, unless there’s an army of Timbertoes fanatics lurking in the uh woodwork

Would vote for goofus and gallant as most horrifying, even as a kid they gave me the creeps & I avoided them. Now as an adult I run with the scissors pointing up, eat candy all day and never learned how to subtract. No regrets.

we would read Highlights at the salon where an old polish lady would perm my mom's hair for what felt like an eternity. Almost every wall in that place was lined with perm chairs that you could pull over your head as a decent astronaut's helmet. But eventually, to really burn the mintues away, you'd resort to waiting room Highlights. You did the hard perm time with Hidden Pictures. Your heart sank if you turned to the HP page and found the items already circled by some negligent parent's child.

always suspected that Goofus was less an asshole, and more "that powder mommy put in her drink each morning when she was pregnant was very much not Emergen-C"
