Thanks to my current Sunday routine (get up, watch MeTV and prepare my week’s writing for Major Spoilers), my kid is getting an in-depth education in the classics.  That is to say, she’s seen every episode of ‘The Brady Bunch’, ‘Gilligan’s Island’ and ‘The Monkees’, and she has very definite opinion on things.  Mike is the most talented Monkee, The Professor is, in her words, “low-key hilarious” and all the Brady kids are morons.  After seeing the proverbial idiot ball passed back and forth from Peter to Marsha to Greg, she began arguing which Brady was the stupidest TV child, then suddenly informed me that she had crafted today’s sitcom query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is torn between Bud Bundy and the girl from ‘My Two Dads’, both of whom think they’re actually the smart ones, asking: Which fictional offspring is the absolute STUPIDEST TV child?

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.
