He follows that up with, “It’s really depressing”—icing on the dick cake. I’m tempted to do a supercut of Kevin being a dick to Paul, but it would be at least two hours long and would likely cause severe psychological strain.

Yes, the Arnold family as a whole is troubled. I’ll concede that Kevin learned many of his dick traits from Jack, but Norma never really bothers me. I wish she’d stand up to her husband more often, but as we all know from watching Mad Men, such things just weren’t done back then. As for Wayne—well, at least he’s consistent.
There’s no denying Paul and Winnie are annoying, but they’re annoying in a pretty standard adolescent way. Yeah, yeah, they whine and they’re irrational. I just can’t stay mad at them, because all of their minor bad habits pale in comparison to Kevin’s dickish reactions. Worst best friend/boyfriend ever.
Becky Slater is actually kind of an asshole, but she does call Kevin on his shit. And for that, she’s OK in my book. (My book is also called Kevin Arnold Is a Dick. Currently seeking a publisher.)
Thank you to everyone who has spread the word about this Tumblr! As a lifelong fan of The Wonder Years, I feel it is my duty to bring awareness to Kevin Arnold’s persistent dickishness. (I’m doing God’s work, basically.) Please continue to tell your friends about the blog, and I promise to keep posting daily examples of Kevin being a dick.
