When you were a kid were you a Jeff, a Sumo or a Clarence?

I was a Clarence with a little bit of Sumo underneath.
>>
That's a good thing, OP. If you were a Jeff as a kid, you are a stick in the mud and most likely autistic and then blame Clarence for having autism when he is actually the most kid-like of them all.
>>
I was more of a Breen.

A Clarence with a Jeff fa├žade

I wish I was a Percy.
>>
I believe I was a mix of Jeff and Clarence
- Jeff in his spergy fascination with art/weirdish shit
- Clarence in his goofiness, randomness, innocence

This show is one of the few things that makes me miss being a kid

I'm school shooter Clarence.

wtf was up with that episode?
>>
Clarence in that I was goofy and slow, Jeff in that I was insecure and whiny, and Sumo in that I was gross. Maybe a bit of Percy cuz I was also babyish. Then again I was a crybaby and I don't think any of them are like that. Maybe the kid with the cheeks?
>>
I was Jeff but without the hard working aspect
>>
i was belson

>not being a Gilben

>>79161004
I just want you to know the Jeffs here fucked your mother
>>
>>79160499
I was a mix between Belson and that weird kid that doesn't talk. My two best friends were basically Jeff and Sumo, though.
>>
Jeff, oh god was I like Jeff. not quite in the same way but i had issues with personal space and carried around a set of plastic utensils that i only ate from. i was also top-of-the-class smart, pretty organized and very obedient. not a brown-noser though.
>>
I was so Jeff it hurts to watch the show.. I still love it though.
>>
I was the kid with glasses (the one that fell in love with the redhead thing, dunno his name)

I was Jeff; I was the calmest of my group of friends and the voice of reason while my retard friends were up to their own usual shenanigans. Sometimes I was too nice for my own good, which is probably why I got such retarded friends to begin with, because I was one of the only people that wasn't mean to them like everyone else was. I didn't have meltdowns or OCD though like Jeff has.
>>
I was a Jeff. I know now how insufferable I must have been, so you don't need to remind me - I'm actually really grateful for characters like Jeff and Pearl because it seemed to me growing up, I always identified with the soft-spoken, OCD nerd characters who were always characterized as harmless victims of bullies, and I think that probably helped give me a victim complex. I think that it's must more helpful for kids who're like me to see the characters they relate to actually struggling with their social awkwardness, that THEY can be the ones who're in the wrong and that empathizing with and tolerating other people is more important than guarding their ego or their precious stuff. It's a much more balanced, honest portrayal of what it's like being the "smartest" kid in your group than either the quiet-geek-with-a-heart-of-gold or the raging-faglord-turbonerd-with-a-pocket-protector-and-no-redeeming-qualities-whatsoever archetypes.

I think the best example of this was probably the Ruth Bader Ginsbot episode.

I also usually wanted to just chill out and watch tv while my friends wanted to go outside in the mud and chuck rocks at ducks or something

I was a mix of Jeff and Sumo meaning I was smart but a mischievous asshole as a child.

Thanks. Hitting that point of realization when you leave high school and go "Oh man, it's not just that I was the odd one out in my hometown, I really AM a spaz." is hard as fuck, and I think it'll be a lot easier for kids who're encouraged by stories to be more self-evaluating and self-aware. And those kinds of kids are exactly the sort who're gonna take fiction to heart way more than most, so addressing those issues feels especially helpful.

What is this action implying?

You never did this as a kid?

I did but with friends but I was never aware of the meaning
>>
>>79162101
It has no real meaning.
>>
>>79162069
Maybe it's just because I was born in the 80s, but I don't remember kids being that retarded back then.

A mix between Clarence and Sumo. I was a goofy, naive, fat wierdo, sympathetic and I made friends easily but, I also was dirty and kind of a savage like sumo also my parents don't give two shit about me or me brothers. Good times.
>>
Speaking of Clarence there's a new episode at 5pm.

Here's the official talkback thread.

I always assumed it was aliens popping out of your chest.

>>79161997
It's just one of those little oddities you find amusing as a kid. Like waving a pencil to make it look wobbly.
>>
>>79160499
I had Clarence's enthusiasm, optimism, and dopeyness mixed with Jeff's everything and a bit of Percy thrown in.
>>
Clarence/Sumo then turned into a Jeff during Middle School.
;_;
>>
>>79161997
I used to do it when I was a kid and I always thought it was just supposed to be something weird and creepy. But I wouldn't be surprised if it was implying something. I was always the last to catch that kind of thing.
>>
>>79162069
I honestly never did this, and I'm not even sure how it works. What causes the lump to appear on their chest?
>>
>>79163091
That's your other arm. You pull one of your arms in and hold the empty sleeve with your other arm to make it look like that.

I was an Eddy. I once bought a bunch of pens and pencils at ten cents a pop and then turned around and sold them at school for a dollar each.

Jeff with a little of clarence, i lived in my own head most of the time but i could interact with others just fine (my parent actually were always surprise by the fact that someone as retarded as me could make friends so easily), and i went to a badly enough school to pass as a smart responsible person

I was Jeff to the extent where watching the show is like watching a documentary of my childhood.

I was Sumo 90% of the time until it caused situations that would stir up a self preservation instinct that made me suddenly flip to Jeff.
>>
>>79160499
I was Clarence, when I got a bit older I was channeling Sumo.
>>
>>79160499
I was Sumo but secretly Jeff.

Would not recommend it.
