    Gay Bob is a doll created in 1977 and billed as the world’s first openly gay doll. Creator Rosenberg described the doll as resembling a cross between Paul Newman and Robert Redford. Bob is anatomically correct.

    The all-caps setting is horrendous, but this may be the best use of Tango ever.
