Knowing and Doing

We’ve all watched enough episodes of GI Joe to know that knowing is half the battle. But did any of the Joes ever explain what the other half is?

Based on the typical GI Joe battles some possible answers are:

  • Tanks
  • A talking parrot
  • Laser rifle guns
  • Hitting on your hot red-headed counter-intelligence officer
  • Blowing stuff up
  • Increased defense spending
  • Tearing off full-face masks that make you look like an entirely different person
  • Letting the bad guys escape
  • Fighter jets

This list would probably have been better if I was watching GI Joe regularly, but I’ve been missing it. I am a bad TV watcher.
