    I used to stretch the head from the torso & stick an M80 in there for effect. It had an impact. Id only do it to the army Joe however:laugh:

    or tying GI Joe(s) and Marx cowboys and indians to the trees in the yard and honing my red ryder shooting skills.

    No more GI Joes, but an 870, coupl-a-tubs of tannerite and some leftover BuzzLightYears tied to a tree would be fun.

    I may not celebrate, but I did enjoy playing with my brother's G.I. Joe(s) as a little girl. I liked him because he would go on dates with my Barbie doll. I had a Barbie car - and Ken, with his fake plastic hair and limbs that would not bend, couldn't fit in the Barbie car without a lot of effort.

    G.I. Joe, with the "real" hair and beard and his flexible joints, could fit in the Barbie car quite nicely.

    There was a commercial with something to that effect several years ago. I laughed very loudly the first time I heard it because it brought back memories.

    My brother was never too keen on my stealing his G.I. Joe from his toy box, but Barbie had to do what she had to do!

    G.I. Joe was a bit of a homewrecker, eh? Did you have a Trailer Trash Barbie? She'd fall for 'America's movable fighting man'. Real hair is hard to come by in that plastic world.
