Brian Salutes G.I. Joe
My name is Brian Gary and I like G.I. Joe. I know I am not the only one who loved playing with him when I was a kid…and as an adult. Today is G.I. Joe’s birthday. He was created on this day in 1964. Think of the adventures we put ours through.I know mine had his arm melted in a wicked crayon fire and was busted numerous times trying to break into Barbie’s dream house. He never had a problem getting past Ken. Ken wasn’t much of a security system. I read this morning where Mattel, the toy company, is launching a publicity campaign to help Ken woo Barbie back after she left him 7 years ago for Australian surfer Blaine. I know my daughter’s Barbie also had a fling with Evel Knievel. I caught them riding around my living room on his stunt cycle years ago. I wish Ken the best in trying to win her back but sorry Ken, I still don’t think you have a chance. She is too good for you and I think still has feelings for her one true love G.I. Joe. Happy Birthday G.I. Joe. You will always be the coolest action figure ever.
