|I used to have an impressive collection of GI JOE action figures (circa
1980s). I had all the Joes, all the Cobras, all the vehicles. I even
had JOE HQ and the Cobra dome thing-- I was a hardcore JOE-junkie, okay? I
admit it! Anyway, one day my friend and I decided it would be
cool to set up all the Joes/Cobras and then shoot them down with a BB gun.
Back and forth we went...I'd take out his Destro... He'd take out my Snake
eyes, and so on until a lone, singletary action-figure was left
standing to claim the victory. After the dust
cleared, there was little JOE limbs and dismembered torsos
everywhere. Looking down at the broken and battered carnage
that used to be my prized collection, I started to feel regret because I had
spent so much money on these things and now they were utterly
destroyed. but God! It was so much fun! So, we
immediately started gluing all the JOEs back together again and the mirth
continued for weeks.
