Barbie Ferrari Sold Separately

~~~ NOTE FROM CHRIS: ~~~
NOTES: Mattel's Barbie turned 40 years old on Monday. Hard to believe, isn't it? It seems like only yesterday she was a 10 year old with a 40-inch bust.
The Top 14 Ways Barbie Celebrated her 40th Birthday
- Nobody knows, but they found her naked behind the sofa.
- Had 40 donuts and make a quick trip to the bathroom.
- For kicks, told an 11-year-old girl she looked "a little chunky."
- Got "dollfaced."
- Same as last year -- had another rib removed.
- Got jiggy in the barracks with G.I. Joe.
- Drowned her sorrows in a thimbleful of Barbie Dream Gin while listening to the deafening roar of her biological clock.
- Dumped Ken. Flashed thong at Bill. Waited for million dollar book deal.
- Weekly tanning session in an Easy Bake oven.
- Same as every day -- curled up on a couch watching "The View" with General Foods Viennese coffee blend and Snackwells cookies.
- Another night searching in vain for Ken's "accessory."
- Had a big party and invited all her plastic friends -- just like the rest of us do.
- Ransacked the house looking for that arm the dog chewed off.
and the Number 1 Way Barbie Celebrated her 40th Birthday...
- Gave Ken a red marker and let him draw some nipples.
