Ok my fiancee is the only one to make fun of me to my face.
It was the day I lined up all my Cobra Commanders down the coffee table.

However, a few months ago I had a cart full of Joes and was checking out at the register. I had my son with me and the cashier looks at him and says "looks like somebody's been a good boy"....my son looks at her and says "they're not for me they're for my daddy"....the look the cashier gave me was priceless.

Of course I am the butt of those jokes, I am a grown man buying dolls. But they all think I am nuts anyways. But here one of my rationals, when I finally do get a wife and tykes every Christmas and birthday is covered. Boy or girl, moc joes every year baby. I will be the most awesome pappa ever, or the worst if they want many my little ponies. HA ha ha. COBRA!

The benefit of having a lot of nerds for friends, I never get my balls broke for collecting Joes.
Now for spending AS MUCH as I do on them... that's another story. >_>

My wife just smiles when I get new Joe stuff and tells me I'm the biggest geek she's ever met.

My friends break my balls all the time for it... "We'll ride with you to go get your dolls!" is a common exclamation... doesn't bother me, though...

I've been joked on before,but never really made fun of.Once they realize how big my collection really is(noone knows,its all in the attic cuz i have no where to keep it) and see i'm sitting on a gold mine,the jokes usally stop.
To quote Mall Rats...
"You think just cuz a guy reads comics he can't start some shit?"
If someone in your family gives you shit about how much money you spend.Just reply..."Fine,i'm going to the drug mans house.Be back later"
