Go get 'em, Joe

Note: Thanks for your patience! The URL www.popculturejunkmail.com should work again. That site will redirect you to pcjm.blogspot.com, but the first one remains the site's main address.

"Kung Fu grip" has become one of those wonderful cliches in our language, eternally reminiscent of a time, an era, a generation of toys.

But, you know, when you see the famed Kung Fu grip up close, it's really almost less than impressive. And that snake? Pretty much a massive wimpazoid. I mean, Barbie in her dream house could take him out without breaking a nail.

Barbie's a pretty tough bitch, though.

I'm more intrigued by the fact that Joe seems to have a white-man Afro perm. Just like my dad in the 70s!

During roughly the same period, I had a Barbie with opposable thumbs. They were...hinged, so that she could grasp several small brown plastic accessories she came with, including a phone and a portable record player. Hee!
