It's Barbie's birthday!
This isn't the first time Barbie has gotten a tattoo, interestingly enough. She had one in 1999, and people freaked out, as it was permanent. These are temporary, and the doll comes with its own tattoo gun. That's even more awesome.
This is causing much consternation among parents, mainly because parents obviously have no control over their children and can't say, "Guess what? You're not getting one, because that's horrible." If you have a problem with it, don't buy it. Jeez, people, you control the purse strings, don't you?
The doll is selling like hot cakes, apparently, and Mattel has no plans to pull it. So somebody likes the damned things! And why do hot cakes sell so well, anyway?
Happy Birthday, Barbie!
