FOXNews.com - G.I. Joe to Become Global Task Force in Movie - Celebrity Gossip | Entertainment News | Arts And Entertainment You've got to be kidding? Paramount has confirmed that in the movie, the name G.I. Joe will become an acronym for "Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity" — an international, coed task force charged with defeating bad guys. It will no longer stand for government issued, as in issued by the American government. That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. GI JOE is an American Marine, not a UN soldier. argghh - this is sickening.
