    Goofus or Gallant?

    As a kid were you more a Goofus or a Gallant?
    If you had a 10 year old son would you want him to be a Goofus or Gallant?

    When I was a kid I did not read Highlights so I was not familiar with the two only coming across them when looking for Dysfunctional Family Circus parodies sites.
    I would have definitely been a Goofus instead of a brown nosing prig Gallant.

    Goofus. I hated Gallant - and every Gallant I've met my entire life has been a phone loser. Just because Gallant was self-assured and always knew "proper manners" made him seem way less human to me - and seriously, I think most of us could relate to Goofus, not knowing exactly what to do in certain situations and the fact that Goofus was always held out to be wrong just made kids feel bad about themselves.
    Where we gonna go?
