Tramp Stamp Barbie
For such a bland doll, Barbie sure has caused a lot of controversy in her 50 years of existence. Now she has parents outraged about her latest iteration, Totally Stylin' Tattoo Barbie, which comes with a palette of temporary tattoos and a gun with which to apply them.
Oh, Barbie, how the mighty have fallen. You used to wear tennis outfits and hang out in mansions. Now you come with a "Ken" tramp stamp and a gigantic purple belt buckle.
In addition to this tattoo trouble, Barbie's bad rep with young girls' self-image has led to the proposal of the "Ban Barbie Bill" in West Virginia. That's right, Totally Stylin' Tattoo Barbie will not only look like an outlaw, she may actually be one too.
What will they think up next ? I have a few ideas
Meth Barbie ( no wonder she stays so thin )
Prison Barbie ( incarcerated for killing ken )
Prostitute Barbie ( paying her way through school )
