Boondoggle

One blogger’s personal bridge to nowhere

Real people can be objectified just like Barbies!

What better way to celebrate Barbie’s 50th birthday than with photos of “real-life Barbie dolls?” Why just objectify dolls when you can objectify real people by comparing them to dolls? What problems could giving legitimacy to an icon of physical impossibility possibly create for girls everywhere?

At least that seems to be along the lines of what the trashy New York Daily News must be thinking.
