What's the difference between this and Ted Baxter
? Also, neither name is particularly memorable.
: Ted Baxter
is more of a (wannabe) ladies-man/snake-oil salesman. They're trying to sell you something; either themselves, or their point of view or both.
: Right, and the Clavin is a know-it-all who actually knows nothing. They both want to be recognized and appreciated, but they take different paths.
BTW, "Claven" is actually spelled "Clavin". I've renamed the entry.
: Whoops, thanks Looney. :)
: Moved discussion page from original page.
Thinks Too Much
: Removed the following, as it is a picture-perfect example of why the damn Rule of Cautious Editing Judgement
exists and what happens when nobody corrects a violation of it. And, it's Natter
: On that note, the Real Life
section needs cleaning up, or scrapping.
: Why does the Troper Tales
page for this redirect to Brilliant but Lazy
? Surely this occurs often enough in real life that it deserves its own. (Plus it's not really related to Brilliant but Lazy
at all, since this describes stupid people who think they're smart, while Brilliant but Lazy
describes intelligent people who can't be bothered working.
- TA: I believe that is the joke.
