Operation Snoopy: Disassembly

For a toy made 35 years before vinyl toys became hip, this toy was as well-constructed as any I've encountered. The dog came apart with some gentle prying, and soon I had pieces of pooch before me. I set about cleaning each piece using a combination of Goo Gone and glass cleaner (we were out of rubber-dog polish). I felt a little like Geppetto.

Thanks to these SoSG readers for sharing their goodies....

I just started laughing my head off at this picture of Snoopy disassembled. Too much. Can you rebuild him and make him bionic?

Rubber-dog polish....too much. Thanks for the lunchtime laugh.

Shenanigans I tell you, it's all Shenanigans.

Alex Cora said...

DB: I did the same. I thought it was pretty funny (and creepy) to see Snoopy all cut up.

Loney Fan said...

Our shenanigans are cheeky and fun. His shenanigans are cruel and tragic.

Dusty Baker said...

AC- I think it was Snoopy's little collar lying there that really put me over the edge.

Begs the question, who would win in a fight between Count Chocula, King James, Capt. Kirk, and Greedo.

Dusty Baker said...

Han Solo took Greedo out pretty easily, so I would eliminate him.

Neeebs said...

Speaking of disassembly, the International body that governs track announced today that the results from the South African runner's sex test reveals that she/he is a Hermaphrodite!

Wow!

Dusty Baker said...

On the one hand I feel sorry for her/him for having had his/her story dragged out there, but on the other hand s/he had to know that it would become an issue by competing in international sports and being subject to the rules set forth by its governing bodies. Can't wait to see what the ultimate dispensation is for this situation. We were all thinking that "she" would either be determined to be one or the other gender, and hence would have to compete in that category. Now...not so clear.

I love the fact that CASTER SEMENYA anagrams to A SECRET MAN? YES

Dusty Baker said...

WHOA!

For an off day, Dodger-wise, there sure has been a lot of activity on SoSG: Assassins' Circle end game, scoreboard watching of the Red menace, Operation Snoopy Disassembly, Ethier making the Onion, hermaphroditic anagrams, what looks like the coolest puzzle day puzzle ever but which will for me have to wait until christmas holidays for me to tackle, Samoan transportation policy...this place has it all.

It breaks my heart to see Snoopy disembodied :_(

I'll have nightmares for sure.

And that's why you never take a loan from the mob Charlie Brown.

I always wanted a Dodgers Snoopy figurine that they released in Japan. It stood right next to Giants Snoopy.

i have that Count Chocula!

and James Loney (the bobblehead) looks like Jose Reyes (the bobbleheaded person)

Orel, do you have a sister, and if so, did you tear the heads off her Barbies? :)

The OC Register had a tip last week about Goodwill's auction site.
They showed a Snoopy pencil sharpener currently bidding for $4.

I take it you snapped that up already, Orel.
