G.I. Joe Sigma 6 Valentines!

And here's that guest article I mentioned -- a G.I. Joe valentine-themed toy photography narrative by Monte Williams of Geek Creek! It really is a touching entry, if for no other reason than the final image, and if you've never seen the Sigma 6 valentines before you'll no doubt find those amusing as well. Storm Shadow's "Candy is sweeter than revenge!" valentine is probably my favorite, but that's not the only one that elicits a chuckle or a raised eyebrow. For instance, take Snake Eyes's "Sword brothers forever!" declaration. Given that being sword brothers hasn't kept Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow from battling each other violently and even to the death across their various incarnations, I'm not sure how much that brand of brotherhood is worth.

If you're interested in reading more of Monte's written material, he's also got Retrobate, Lowbrow Literati, and the all-new Frog Monkey Juice Box. (How's that for a name?!) All of these pages feature worthy reading, even if Monte is completely and totally wrong in his assertion that TMNT (2007) is better than Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990). 😉

Okay, that does it for now. See y'all next time!

P.S. Still looking for input regarding the new name for Hot Flashes, and don't forget about the clown bubble challenge thingy! Read this post for more info about those.
