John Heron had always told the toys that they’re not allowed to leave the house but some of them didn’t appreciate that. They wanted to get out and see the world, have an adventure. Of course, John would always forbid them and didn’t appreciate them going on about it, until one day they were nagging him to take them out for a ride and he shouted at them to shut up.
So GI Joe got offended and decided to go out on the town anyway. He climbed under the car and found something to hold onto, and waited. He had fallen asleep before anything actually happened, but eventually John got in the car and raced off down the road. Immediately GI Joe knew that he had made a fatal mistake – the road underneath him was going past so quickly that if GI Joe had fallen down he would have immediately died a horrible and painful death. He was doing everything he could to hold on for dear life as John’s car raced around town, until eventually the car stopped at some traffic lights, and GI Joe lost his grip and fell onto the road and rolled into the gutter.
He had grazed himself a little bit and his arm was twisted, but everything was still in working order. So GI Joe got up and looked around town – everything was so big! He walked into a nearby shop, narrowly missing get stepped on by a big burly motorbike gangster. Nothing in all his years in the army had ever prepared him for anything like this – he had to fight just to stay alive in this one.
So he climbed up the table and hid among the tattoo machines, ready to shoot anyone if they came at him – unfortunately for him, the first law of being a toy was to always pretend to be a dead statue in front of humans, even if it costs you your life. So he was unable to defend himself in case any humans came.
Evetually the owner of the tattoo shop discovered him and assumed that a customer had left him there by accident. He thought it was cute so he took GI Joe into his office, where he put him next to a figurine of Jessica Rabbit. Perhaps this trip wasn’t going to be so bad after all!
