As a young’n, I was a member of a certain trademarked group of young people who did scouty things in a manner reminiscent of boys.  (I won’t mention the name.)  Still, we never had the kind of god-fighting, universe-spanning adventures that the Lumberjanes enjoyed, which is mildly disappointing.  Heck, even being a Sunflower Girl like Peter Brady (it’s…  complicated) would have been interesting, even though those fictional scouts might not accept me.  To be honest, I might prefer the excitement of being a Galactic Girl Guide, leading to today’s non-trademark-infringing query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) always loved that The Mad Scientist’s Club were explicitly Explorer Scouts, rather than a fictional organization, asking: What group of fictional scouts would you trust to help you across the street and/or defeat evil?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    The Fireside Girls of “Phineas and Ferb”. Not only do they know Phineas and Ferb (who have helped them out on occasion), they are pretty resourceful and creative in their own right.

    Either that or the Buttercup Scouts of “Jackie Chan Adventures” because Jade Chan could call on Jackie, Tohru and Uncle, and she’s probably got a couple of the talismans with her.
