Tattoo Barbie?

If you wanted one more sign we're spiraling down the cultural toilet, here it is: Tattoo Barbie.

SKY News is reporting:
The new "Totally Stylin' Tattoos Barbie" comes with a set of body art stickers to be placed anywhere on her body.

The set also comes with a tattoo gun so kids can stamp designs on themselves.

Manufacturer Mattel says the tattoos for children are temporary and wash off.

But some parents believe the toy is not appropriate for young children and would not buy the doll.
Ya' think?

Has Mattel lost its mind? CMR can only extrapolate what's coming next:

2010 - Tramp stamp Barbie? Comes with free contraception, a "Free Clinic" doctor's office where Barbie can get her pretend gonorrhea shot from an inflatable hypodermic needle. Recommended for children ages 3 and up.


2011 - Correctional Facility Barbie. With digestible pouch for smuggling drug contraband. Shank not included.
2012 - Daytime Hooker Barbie - (Also known as Bratz) Pimp not included. Pull her string and she says, "That'll cost ya' extra, honey" and "Not on the lips baby."

  1. Hilarious post!

    Personally, I'm looking forward to Correctional Facility Barbie because that means we'll get the first ever computer animated direct-to-DVD "Women In Prison" movie marketed directly to five year olds.

  2. Arrghh - I was going to post on Tattoo Barbie, but you used your Funny-Idea-Stealomatic Ray. Curses!

    Mine wouldn't have been as funny anyway. Thanks for the laughs!

  4. I'm waiting for Government Entitlement Barbie. She unfortunately has an ARM on the Barbie Dream House, and is behind on her payments. She basically sits at home with no job waiting for Comrade Obama to pay her mortgage for her.

  5. Whew! That Barbie, she's edgy, isn't she?

  6. How about Rehab Barbie with a 12 step inclusive vocabulary and a hardbound copy of "Alcoholics Anonymous"?

  7. Subvet,
    I can appreciate that you thought the Rehab Barbie post was humorous. I respectfully ask you to think about again.

    14 kids, no house.... no job.... no husband.... expects the state to pay for everything until she can pawn her kids off for book and movie deals, TV appearances?

  10. Octobarbie! Darn it. Darn. Darn. I wish I thought of that. Darn!
    It's bad enough LarryD plagues me but now his siblings?!

  12. Wow - my mom never told me I had an evil twin sister! I wonder when her birthday is so I can her a card!

  13. She's likely institutionalized so start there.

  14. Hmmm. Better leave well enough alone then. Evil's okay, but I draw the line at psycho.

  15. Just be glad we don't yet have Catholic Priestess Barbie, complete with rainbow tie-dye vestments, inclusive-language packaging, and a Happy Fun Times Ordination Boat.

    ;)

  17. Wow, EegahInc (or is it Eegahlnc?). I think those pictures belong in the CMR weekly signs of the Apocalypse post!

  18. That's a great idea, although, if if the Clergy Girls get included in a post, I'd suggest linking to a different site than the one I provided. It's not just anti-Catholic, it's vehemently anti-anything not in lock step with the blogger's personal brand of evangelicalism.

    Hmm, now that I notice LarryD draws the line at psycho, I hope he didn't follow the link. They've got bucket loads of it over there.

  21. Eegahinc - You're right, I'm not going to follow the link. I might end up seeing my evil twin sister, and I don't want to deal with that right now.

  22. I wish someone would have told me you can't be Catholic and have tattoos before I converted!

  23. Nobody said that. Don't be sensitive. They're mocking them for marketing tattoos for children on Barbies.

  24. Be not afraid, Katie! Just in case your comment wasn't tongue-in-cheek, the Church, to my knowledge (this site's author may know more than me), has no catch-all prohibition on tattoos. It only asks that you consider any possible risks to bodily health or integrity, and that you don't choose a design or placement which explicitly OR implicitly conveys a message in opposition of Christian teaching.

    Tramp Stamp Barbie, in my unasked for opinion, doesn't make the cut under those rules. Pretty Butterfly on the Shoulder Barbie probably wouldn't raise any eyebrows unless you believe it might act as a sort of "gateway drug" to nastier things in the current cultural climate.

    Anyway, who asked me? I'll stop now.
