I got the coolest doll off eBay for a buck. It’s a Mikhail Gorbachev doll produced around 1990. He’s about 10 inches tall and when you squeeze him he squeaks. I’m trying to figure out how I can rig a voicebox so he says “glasnost” and “perestroika.” That would be sweet.
Anyway, here is Gorby:
Gorby is wearing black corduroy pants, a red and black striped shirt, and a black leather jacket that says “Gorby” on the back. I found this to be quite odd, as I never knew about Mikhail Gorbachev’s secret life as a Hell’s Angel. I would expect a Gorby doll to be dressed in a suit, but eh, whatever.
In other news, good luck to all those college grads in search of a job!
Tony Blair is going to be on the Simpsons…well, his voice anyways.
