in the 80's gi joes developed the kung fu grip because a bored toy factory worker began teaching the toys yoga so they can move thier joints in more ways.
This led to a resale of old gi-joes so kids and parents had to shell out additional money just to get a new toy that could actually grab an m16 plastic gun with two hands.
Thus studying yoga weakened them because they were really no longer able to pick up and fire thier plastic m60's ak 47s and bazookas with one arm.
This is why star wars toys were stronger because they could pick up really BIG ass guns with only one hand.
If someone understands a word of what I just wrote, please post and explain it to me.

The cool thing about the Hasbro Gi Joes was that they were lots of little pieces of plastic held together by a rubber band.
Combined with fireworks, it made for awesomely ballistic dismemberments.
Also fun: gi joe versus the WD40 flamethrower."You know what I like about you, William? You like guns AND meditation."
