Oh, Barbie…

Dear Barbie,

I saw you in the store last weekend, and I have to tell you I’m a little disappointed in you. I know you are under a lot of pressure from your boss because sales have been low, and you never pretended to be the classiest act in the toy aisle, but this is just sad. And don’t give me that story about having student loan payments to make, because we all know THAT isn’t true.

At least you have some Mardi Gras beads on. That’s one thing we can say for you, Honey. You always know how to accessorize.
