When I was young, a large amount of my disposable income went straight to the Hasbro corporation, thanks to their extensive line of G.I. Joe action figures and vehicles, as well as the various and sundry Transformers I could afford.  (I bought more Go-Bots, due to the lower price point and easier availability, a fact that Major Spoilers EIC Stephen likes to mock me for.)  My three sisters had quite a few of Hasbro’s ‘My Little Pony’ toys, as well as those creepy Furbies, which creates an odd triangle of pony, robot or soldier and nicely sets up today’s Pawtucket, RI query.

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would have thrown in M.A.S.K., but I represent a good 10% of their fanbase, asking:  When it comes to Hasbro products, which team are you on: Pony, Robot or Soldier?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    You will know when I tell you that my answer is ‘Soldier,’ and because knowing is half the battle you will find yourself beginning down the race course of Zeno’s Paradox.
