You do? Really? That’s always been my dream too, ever since I thought about it about 10 minutes ago.
My little girl has a subscription to Highlights magazine, courtesy of my parents, and we always read Goofus and Gallant first. Today, at dinner, we even role-played Goofus and Gallant. Goofus let forth with a mighty belch, and received a rather severe dressing down from Gallant. In fact, Gallant threatened to tell Goofus’ mother about the incident. Goofus retorted that his mother likely wouldn’t care, since she’s the sort of parent that would name her child “Goofus.”
I’ve already written my first episode. In the first panel, Goofus is standing outside of the boys bathroom, high-fiving his friends. Underneath, the caption will read “Goofus never washes his hands after using the restroom.” In the second panel, Gallant will be lathering up his hands. Behind him, there is a toilet with stink lines raising from it. The caption will read “Gallant is concerned about fecal-borne illnesses, and always washes his hands.”
Pretty good, no?
