All right. Let me explain.

In case you didn't know, this is Goofus & Gallant. It appears in Highlights Magazine for Children, and is about two kids named (surprise!) Goofus and Gallant. Gallant is the one who's polite, suave, generous, and kind. Goofus is the total jerky.

A typical G&G cartoon goes something like this:

Image

It's a nice thing to teach kids, but definitely in need of some gumption, gum, and gargle. In other words, pizzaz. Our job is to spice it up.

Here's how it works:

1. The first one will come up with something that Gallant does. (Goofus goes first in the cartoons, but that's not a very good way to set up comedy, so here, Gallant goes first.)

2. The second person will post what Goofus does instead, choosing carefully for comedic effect. He will proceed to post another thing Gallant does.

Example:

USER 1:Gallant is careful to always be polite and use correct spelling and grammar when in discussions on the Internet.
---
USER 2: Goofus trolls, uses leetspeak, frequents 4chan, and asks girls if they want to "cyber" with him.

Gallant watches Masterpiece Theatre.
---
et cetera

Let's start, shall we?

Gallant makes sure always to eat a healthy breakfast.

Goofus is a modern surrealist that lives in a cave in kansas, doesn't let anyone touch him becasue it would ruin the mood, throws paint at his friends, and has not produced one painting.

Gallant knows how to party.

Goofus never shares his snacks, and, as a result, is very fat.

Gallant likes to move it, move it.
