I remember back in the early '70's, my brother and I got new G.I. Joes for Christmas. They were pretty cool with the kung fu grip and "real-life hair and beard". I understood in my childish way that these guys were heroes. Nowadays, action figures are made with anyone's likeness on a custom basis, if you want. This site cracked me up. I suppose because they're in the public domain their permission is not required, but would they have approved anyway? Conservative I may be, but no, I'm not ordering any.

This is a quick test to see who watches really bad movies...

The Super Hero Sarah Palin action figure reminds me of the movie Grandma's Boy.

And, not to sound old, but...why were schoolgirls never slutty lookinglike that when I was in school? Totally unfair.
