Gay Bob

I found this advertisement on At first I thought it was a cleverly done Photoshop joke - but considering this site it's on I don't think so. There's no year specified, other than being under the 70s category. Anyone have any thoughts? Gay Bob reminds me of James Brolin, Barbara Streisand's husband.

I remember this, I was in HS at the time. As I recall, he's anatomically correct.

Not only is the Gay Bob Doll real, it gets a mention in a Frank Zappa song, "Sy Borg," From "Joe's Garage, Acts 2 and 3."

Go to the three minute mark, and listen to the narration and following verse:

-- Days of Broken Arrows
