No Way This Chick is 50!

Princie received this little lovely as a birthday gift from a friend.

Look at that butt, you could bounce quarters off of it. I hear she's just turned 50. If this is the new 50, I'm outta luck...in a big, big way! Go ahead. Just click on that picture. Take it all in, bask in Barbie's MANUFACTURED gloriousness. (I know gloriousness isn't really a word, I just like the way it sounds.)

Me (to The Captain): Well, I can't say for sure what a doll like this does for a little girl's self-esteem, or to her thoughts of what beauty really is, but I sure as heck know what it does to mine.

The Captain: Seriously, that is just nasty. What man would even want a woman who looked like that? It's just gross.

Good answer Captain, good answer!

At least she has flat feet.

jen said...

I don't care how skinny I get, I never want my legs to look like that! Ever

Lanie said...

ROFLOL! I'm glad there are very few (maybe one or two) barbies in my house of girls. Littlest Pet Shop is a little better for the self esteem don't you think? :)

karen said...

My mom never allowed me to have Barbies for that very reason. (Although I wanted one desperately). And did I tell you I love the Captain?

Natalie said...

Kristina, you make me laugh!

Jen, same thoughts here; although, I can't lie, her lack of back fat is quite lovely.

Lanie, we only have three Barbies, we LOVE Littlest Pet Shop!!

Karen, the Captain is quite loveable! :)

I never was a barbie person, have you ever seen what Barbie would look like if they put her proportions on a real persons body? Her boobs would be so big she would topple over.

Aubrey said...

Someone apparently wasn't good at math in the Matel factory because Barbie is WAY out of proportion! Hahah. I never was a Barbie girl...I always cut their hair off and draw on them with Sharpies, so my parents would always have to ground me from them and hide them at the top of the closet where I couldn't reach. I finally gave up Barbies all together, and I'm so thankful I never got addicted to them!

Sue said...

I love the Captain's excellent good sense. (And I'm with him...I never liked Barbie, either. Or Ken, for that matter!)

=)

mom said...

Are you kidding...I look just like that! Seriously....

I tried to tell you people...they don't call him "The Captain" for nothing....smart man, very smart man!

Yeah, Snarky's back in the house!!!

Gotta run...Papa Snarky has his quarters ready! :) (quit gagging)

Mommy (You can call me OM) said...

Tsk, tsk. Just gross indeed!

Natalie said...

MOM, that is dissssssssgusting!!
Never, ever, ever, again! I will have no choice but to ban you if you write anything like that again.
NOT funny!

Rachel and Aubrey, I was never a Barbie girl either. Thankfully, Princie prefers Littlest Pet Shop and stuffed animals.

Sue, I always thought Ken was a little creepy. Ewwww.

OM, I've been thinking of you all day! Gross indeed is right!

The Captain said...

Thank you Snarky Mama.
You are pretty smart yourself.
From,
Your Lab Partner "Javed"

Laretha said...

Good answer Captain!

You know she couldn't even walk if she were for real, right?!?!

mom said...

Oh that is just so typical from you bleeding heart left wing liberal...YOU can say whatever you want, but if you don't like what I say, you threaten to ban me!!!! You, Joy Behar, CNN and MSNBC....go ahead, just try to silence our voices...
That is what happens when people are jealous and just can compete!! :)

Besides, YOU are one who said "you could bounce quarters off that butt!" Hey, hate the game, baby, don't hate those of us who can still play...after all 50 (something) ain't what it used to be! :)

And Thank you Captain...I KNOW you always have my back...even if I did almost blow up the lab!!!!

We are...Barbie and Snarky Mama! :)

April said...

I'm visiting from SITS! Your hubby is one smart cookie!

KC Mom said...

Excuse me while I go stick my finger down my throat and make an appt. with a plastic surgeon...oh and curse my parents genes for not giving me another foot of height. Sigh.
Good answer Captain.

Kim said...

So, one of my favorite quotes from Ashley when she was 4:

(someone had given her a barbie for her birthday)She stared at it for minute then said,
"I don't think this Barbie would be a good mommy. She could never give soft hugs. I wish I could have a Barbie that looked like YOU. It would be much more pretty and soft."

Yes, at that moment I knew she was a genius! Without me knowing, she gave it to the dog to play with and we never saw miss Barbie again!

em said...

oh captain, you've just won ALL our hearts;-)

I am Harriet said...

Hi.
Just stopping by from SITS to say hello.
Have a great Tuesday!

Sue said...

Have you gotten your book yet, Natalie?

Fiauna said...

Um, have you watched Dancing With the Stars lately? Ugh! TOO much plastic (if you know what I mean)!

Shauna said...

good answer captain, good answer! I would loose quarters if I tried bouncing some off my butt! And for snarky momma...just because there is snow on the roof top, doesn't mean there can't be a fire in the furnace! you go girl!!!

mom said...

Thank you Shauna...that's what I'm talking about..Snarky's gonna "ban" me...in her dreams! :)

Trash talking Barbie....who will it be next! Snarky Mama, Cher, and Dolly....we can't help it if we're smokin! :) That's how we roll! Gotta love us!

Will you hate me if I tell you that I still love Barbie - it was my favorite toy as a girl and I was so excited when Haley asked for one.

Ahhhh...the memories of sitting in the basement playing with my Barbies for hours - I remember making my own house, clothes and I LOVED, just loved it when I finally got my Barbie Convertible. It was my best birthday ever.

And I don't know what you are talking about, but if someone threw quarters at my butt, I am sure that it would fly across the room. Perhaps bounce is not the term that I would use, but I know that all of my extra cushioning would make that quarter fly!!
