Friend of mine and his middle brother were playing with GI Joes the other guy got mad at my friend grabbed his IG Destro and flushed him down toilet . Unfortunately Joes can't go down drain so toilet started to overflow. Both of those guys were yelling for the oldest brother "Help Eddie the house is flooding!!"

I just joined this site about a week ago, and haven't posted yet, but after reading this thread, I wanted to make my first post.
Great thread, I laughed several times reading some of the stories.
Thanks for sharing your stories guys.

I hid MY Joes from the babysitter (had a serious Crush), one day she showed early to the house and saw me playing away, I was so embarrased. She bought me a Beachhead for X-MAS......I would marry her today!!!!

in 9th grade advisment (not a class, isnt counseling) the teachers asks the class what do you like. there was two that responded in -action figure/ gi joe. that was me and another kid. i guess the others were afraid of getting "in trouble" by the teacher but right afterwards, comments liKe this were said-
-who the hell still has action figures!
-ill shove them up your ass
the next day, an assload of comments were said to me (including the other kid) all bad comments. however my friends were fine with it cause they;ve seen it. also a few other kids.
teens are very cruel. the slightest thing that isnt "cool" or normal right now is "noobish" or out of date.

I was in third grade, and one of the kids brought tomax and zamot with him to school. Being poor and never allowed to get them, I wanted them badly. He was putting them in everyone's face so at recess I snuck into the class room and took them out of his desk and put them in mine. Damn Mrs. Nelson saw me do the whole thing. That lady haunts me to this day.

First, I'm a well adjusted married adult with three boys. I have a respectable job as a Federal government investigator. Got that?
Ok, so I was an only child and probably collected toys as a kid for longer than was probably acceptable. But look at us now? So don't you judge me.
Anyway, it's 1985 or 86. I was in 6th or 7th grade and took Stalker and the RAM motorcycle. I realized that middle school kids don't play with toys, and I knew that I would be the butt of everyone's jokes if I got caught. But I felt compelled to take this with me. It's as if I wanted a a little something to make me feel comfortable at school, where I felt awkward and out of place. I had a few friends but really didn't feel like I fit in.
So, I was taking this little thing to school almost every day. I had it in my backpack and would see it as I reach for my notebooks or books in each class. But the real embarrasment happened in P.E.
I took it out of my backpack and carefully placed it in my locker. After class, I had to take a shower . . . ugh, I hated middle school. Anyway, here I was this scrawny little kid, looking around me very nervously, making sure the coast was clear. I didn't want anyone to see my toy. Anyway, I took this toy out of the locker and quickly put it in my backpack. I look up, confident that no one saw me . . . and who do I see staring intently at me? The PE coach.
He calls me into his office and asks me to bring my backpack. He asks me what I have in there. I told him it was nothing. (I was the epitome of a good kid. Never got in trouble. Peer tutor and peer counselor. Honor roll every semester. etc.) He said I was acting suspiciously. For which I let out a chuckle. He grabs my bag and sees my toy. He pulls it out and asks me what it was.
I told him I was embarrased and just had it with me to show a friend. He looks at the toy, and back at me, and laughs. My heart sank. He let me go but had this strange look on his face as I walked away. It was like I was an alien who invaded his jock world.
I've never forgotten this story. And, when the new RAM cycle was first reported, it all came back to me.
I'm the best there is at what I do, ha ha! But, what I do isn't very nice, ha ha!

Ok this isn't Joe related but still funny when I think about it. At the time I was collecting the Marvel figures from Toy Biz. I was in the Army and just got station at Fort Sill, OK. I had all these figures in a bag. Of these figures there were a few that had back packs that made sounds and one liners. Well my room mate comes as I was shutting my wall locker. Well I guess something shifted because the next thing you heard clear as day was "Spider sense tingling" over and over again. There was no way to deny it the only thing left to do was open my wall locker and turn it off. With my room mate looking over my shoulder. Come to find out my room mate was a comic book collector and Spiderman was his favorite. So we spent the rest of the night drinking beer and BSing about different comics.
