Today in Heritage History,  March 9, 1964, the character G.I. Joe is created. Few Historians know that the original character was marketed as anatomically correct. It was not until several years later after Joe had been stationed in a number of exotic places around the world, all with an abundance of inexpensive prostitutes catering to military personnel, did Joe’s anatomy “disappear”. Hoping to avert a similar marketing embarrassment, it was not until Mattel introduced their Brokeback Mountain lifelike action figures, that they made their (new) Dinky-Winky Action Figure Condoms, available as a standard available add-on accessory.
