Remembering The Adorable Awkwardness That Was Maffleck

I still can’t even take you two. Maffleck 4ever.

2. Those arms! That face! He didn’t know what to do with them!

3. Ben was the silly (and sometimes slightly annoying) one that demanded a lot of attention.

4. Matt was more of the adorable shy type. He just wanted Ben’s approval.

5. Matt would try to try to talk to Ben, and Ben would act totally disinterested.
