Awful Link of the Day: Stretch Armstrong World

Stretch Armstrong World is the first and likely only fansite devoted exclusively to “the cornsyrup filled he man himself,” Stretch Armstrong. Hopefully you still have one of these rubbery action figures around somewhere, because the site reports “their value has remained more stable than Gold making them a truely [sic] great investment!” Once the economy is destroyed and the world descends into chaos, we’ll have to barter using “Fetch Armstrong dogs”, so it’s best you start your collection as soon as possible.

I had a Fetch Armstrong dog, which is apparently rare now? And if I’m understanding things right, the company got sued and had to stop selling superhero stretchies right as they were coming out with Plastic Man, which is a real shame.
