09:14 am: The Search For The Clothes of Doom!

A month or so ago, I was wandering through the maze of mess known only as "downstairs" when I came upon a silvery doll about ten inches long. Picking it up, I quickly discovered two things: one– it had what was supposed to be a metallic mask fused to its face. Two–it was naked.

I looked at this doll in abject puzzlement. Surely, I could not possibly be holding in my hands a naked Dr. Doom.

So far as I knew, we did not own a Dr. Doom toy…clearly, I am now hallucinating Doom dolls in my basement.

But no…it really was a naked Dr. Doom doll.

Flash forward a month or so, and yesterday, I gathered the courage to tackle the Horror Behind The Chairs–the spot where all the stuff that came either from the office we turned into a bedroom for Ping-Ping or from when we had to pack everything up three years back was piled. I waded in, shaking with terror but gritting my teeth with determination and found…

Victor Von Doom Doll's underwear.

As the cleaning has continued, I have found his tunic, his cloak, one boot and one gauntlet. Still to come, his belt, his other boot and his other gauntlet.

Which still leaves the question…if all his faux armor gear is metallic silver, why make the body underneath grey rather than skin tone? Especially, since they went to the trouble of putting some skin tone around his still human eyes?

Some mysteries will never be solved.

Victor as he is now.

Will the rest of his garments be found?

 

And a blurry picture of his still-human eyes.

Juss informed me that the doll was his father's and that one of the children, he could not remember which one, had undressed it. He actually said: "one of the children".

When I was a child/young teen, we had a "Victor" action figure take a prominent post in our kitchen. I enjoyed spoofing guests by doing a Wednesday Addams on them and talking about Victor as if he were a real, important person. Then I would introduce them to him:

You would fit so well in our game. Sigh.

It would be a cute book to write...a la Toy Story about the toy Super villain who had to put up with such indignities plotting his hapless revenges. I don't think it's been done before.

That would be cute! It would make a good Toy Story plot, too,...if that was the motivation of the villain.

I must wonder, what would Victor von Doom's reaction be to learning that, thanks to the typical American's hang up regarding certain anatomical features, he's been effectively emasculated? :)

I'm sure he would claim that he was just wearing a solid codpiece and was perfectly fit beneath.

When our children were home, I would occasionally do some deep cleaning and run across some underwear of doom--far different from your case and not nearly as happy a surprise.

I did find a pair of boxers with skulls all over them that a friend had left behind...not nearly as amusing, but kind of doomish, nonetheless.
