Goofus vs. Gallant
Remember Gallant from the "Goofus and Gallant" comic strip in Highlights magazine? Man, that guy was smug. And I always thought, of course that Goofus kid won't put away the dishes and is never polite--his parents are so mean they named the poor kid Goofus. Wouldn't that turn most people into a hardened criminal? I think it's incredible that the kid just has problems like not making his bed and turning in his library books late, instead of holding up convenience stores. That Gallant kid probably got a full scholarship to Princeton and then turned into a nervous wreck after nine months of trying to keep his 4.0.
