G.I. Joe, Barbie, and Ken

gi-joe 1964Back when I was a kid, G.I. Joe was a full-sized, poseable action figure for which you could purchase a wide variety of uniforms, weapons and other action accessories. They were so much better than today’s G.I. Joe toys.

Of course, my sisters had Barbie and Ken and when G.I. Joe was on R&R, Barbie would be his whore while Ken (who secretly wanted to be Joe’s bitch) was at at the office or whatever. (Love you long time, GI. No shit.) It’s true that Barbie, Ken and Joe were not anatomically correct so you had to imagine they had “certain” parts. And we all know that Joe’s imaginary parts were much more impressive than Ken’s.
