Er...

We would surely dance with joy with you, if we had slightly more freedom of movement.

I can't see a thing in this mask. What's going on?

Arf!

I wish I could put this gun down, my ear itches.

As you can see, we're all very happy for you. Yo Joe!

 Chesme

Yee! Thank you for rejoicing with me!

But, um, you guys are the large ones... Are you offended that I purchased the smaller reissued ones? The ones that were around in the 80s? You know, "The Real American Hero" and all that jazz...
'Cause nothing is worse than an angered Joe.

A Joe is a Joe! We don't mind at all.

Except that we fight real enemies of peace and democracy, not some made-up "Cobra" thing.

Joe, mellow out!

Sorry, Joe. Don't know what came over me there.

 Chesme

But, we children of the 80s knew nothing of these "real enemies of peace and democracy". They had to get our Joes to fight something...even if the enemies were oddly obsessed with snakes.

And besides, I don't remember seeing any "enemy" large GI Joes from my mother's time. Did I miss those? What did you guys do, sit around camp wrestling each other?

We were always ready should America be threatened by 12" high plastic Fascists or Communists.
