Will No One Stand Up For Goofus?
Oz and Ends this week-end had an amusing post concerning the recent story in the Boston Globe celebrating the 60th anniversary of Highlights. Oz and Ends had this to say on the matter:
The August issue will explain the concept of a billion this way: "If Goofus stacked a billion children on his shoulders, they would reach the moon, wrap around the moon 11 times, stretch back to the earth, wrap around the earth five times, and there would be enough kids left over for 34,944 Little League teams."
But where could we possibly find a billion kids stupid enough to trust Goofus to hold them up?
A good point. Check out the link for thoughts on the revamping of Goofus and Gallant (horrors!).
