And The Prize Goes To … The Best Positive Barbie Story

Last week, we asked you to tell us how Barbie positively affected your dreams and goals. And despite what some people claim, those of you who really loved Barbie didn’t turn out to be vapid, plastic surgery-obsessed bimbos. But only one person could win the limited edition Anemone Barbie by Christian Louboutin. And the winner is … Yankee in the South for this comment:

“Barbie helped make me the woman I am today! But, I can’t think of Barbie, without thinking of my Mom. She worked to support our family, and wasn’t home a lot. Barbie was all the things my mom was to me – a professional, beautiful working woman. We didn’t have a lot of extra money, and so I didn’t have the big pink house, or the snazzy convertable. What I did have, were outfits that my mom and I made together on her days off (does anyone else remember those McCall’s Barbie patterns?); and the highrise that we put together from boxes – decorated with wallpaper samples Mom collected for me, and handcrocheted rugs she taught me to make. My imagination and sense of style (as well as my crafting and sewing skills) all came from those precious times that my Mom spent with me, and the hours of play I had with Barbie and the world we created for her in my bedroom.”

Ken’s Dream House And Inferiority Complex

I’ve always had questions about the Ken doll. What’s his relationship with Barbie anyway? Does he like men or women? What’s up with the ascot? Where did he get all the money for his rad car? Well, this video promo for “Toy Story 3″ doesn’t answer any of those questions, but it certainly makes the famous doll look like a diva. But I guess you are bound to have issues when you have a plastic void where your manhood should be. Keep reading »

Jon Hamm Plays With Himself On “Ellen”

Oh, get your minds out of the gutter! It was a Don Draper Barbie Doll Jon Hamm played with when he stopped by “Ellen” this week. And it wasn’t just any ol’ Don Draper Barbie Doll either; this one was wearing an Ellen thong under his pants. But who can think about dolls — or anything else for that matter — when Jon Hamm is around? And lucky for us, he’s about to be around a lot more. He’s currently filming the fourth season of “Mad Man,” which is set to start airing July 25. That’s two months from today, y’all, not that I’m counting or anything. [via YouTube] Keep reading »

It’s pretty obvious just from her absent nipples and ginormous head that Barbie’s body doesn’t exactly resemble that of a real woman. But this handy infographic does a good job illustrating just how disturbing her proportions would be on an Average Jane. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
