Gaming with Goofus and Gallant [ COMIC ]

Ah, Goofus and Gallant… Remember in Pulp Fiction when Mia Wallace and Vincent Vega first meet and talk about Goofus and Gallant?

Mia Wallace – “In life, are you Goofus or are you Gallant?”
Vincent Vega – “I am Goofus, but I’m trying to real hard to be Gallant.”

Great dialog…



    Gallant joins a room and waits his turn to ask for a quest.

    Goofus joins a room and immediately takes his own quest, then leaves if no one readies in thirty seconds.

    I’m thrown off that the original Goofus and Gallant always included
    quotes of things they would say. They came in groups of four: in the
    first pair, Goofus’s behaviors were described, and Gallant spoke the
    appropriate behavior; in the second pair, Goofus said something stupid,
    and Gallant’s behavior was described.

    So for the first four panels, we’d see these captions:
    1) Goofus abandons the quest if he doesnt[sic] get what he wants.
    2) “No matter what happens, we’re gonna see this through to the end!”
    3) “Move it or lose it, buddy!”
    4) Gallant is aware of his fellow hunters at all times.

    I guess it’s kind of sad that I remember the Goofus and Gallant formula so precisely.
