I saw Tep today, a little worried about him...

Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

Oh that's who Vern was.
Once I got to the mountain top, tell you what I could see
Prairie full of lost souls running from the priests of iniquity

I only knew those from comic book ads.

Never found any of those in any store in my shitty hometown.

The lifespan of pretty much any toy I had was, at best, two years. I was a bit of a psychochild.

I never owned a single GI Joe action figure/toy of any kind that I can recall. I preferred Star Wars stuff. I had the Elastic Hulk and Spider-Man though. Ripped the fuckin’ arms off both of them.

They were filled with a goo, no?

Yeah, they were filled with a thickened corn syrup. Worth a lot today because so few survived intact.

Found a bit more about them here:

The premise of the toy is pretty much a dare to rip off the arms. No way it would have lasted more than two weeks with me.

Yeah that's probably how long mine lasted. I edited in a link to an article about them in my post above. Made a bit of a mess, so they were discontinued. Stretch Armstrong was another one.
