Damn You Stretch Monster!

Damn You Stretch Monster!

stretch monster is my arch enemy

I don’t like to be beaten by a toy but Stretch Monster is the proverbial “one that got away” for me.

Enemy to Stretch Armstrong, I have coveted one since my neighbour Donny brought one home in 1977. Yet, someone always beat me. The last time I tried to win one (1998) my lousy dial up connection broke and I lost out. I just gave up and a couple of years later, I sold my stretch doll collection.

You’ve won this round Stretch Monster.

    I don’t want to brag, but I also had the green bastage back in the day. If I still had it and it didn’t dry up like Phyllis Diller, I would donate it to the cause. I assume that it got tossed many moons ago.
