Wal-Mart Wednesday: Childhood Memories–Perverted

Anyone who read Highlights as kid will remember the cartoon “Goofus and Gallant.” This cartoon attempted to teach children correct and incorrect behaviors through the two main characters. Gallant would do things politely and thoughtfully, while Goofus, as his name would imply, really fucked things up.

I think of Wal~Mart and Target in “Goofus and Gallant” terms. Want an example?

At Target one can find Raggedy Ann and Andy.

Thank you People of Wal~Mart.
