One Small Stretch for Man..

Among the strangest of celebrity dolls lies this expandable spaceman, for no other reason than sharing a name with the original creation. I wonder how Neil feels being immortalized as a corn-syrup-filled sideshow attraction? Anyway, stretch dolls were the bomb-diggity back in the day, whether they made sense or not. It’s sure better than the other Armstrong toy in our collection. On a side note, there’s an urban legend that a Stretch Louis Armstrong exists, but we have yet to see it. This orbital oddity is on loan from the Eastern Florida Space Enthusiasts Club in Cocoa West, FL.

    How would zero gravity affect one of these things? If you stretched him and let go during, would he continue to stretch, freeze in position or snap back and collapse in on himself? They should have made a “tug of war with a black hole” play set.

    This is much more appropriate and dignified than Buzz Aldrin Cola.
