Sunday Funnies; Volume 138

The Divorced Barbie Doll

One day a father gets out of work and on his way home he suddenly remembers that it's his daughter's birthday. He pulls over to a Toy Shop and asks the sales person, 'How much for one of those Barbie's in the display window?' The salesperson answers, 'Which one do you mean, Sir? We have: Work Out Barbie for $19.95, Shopping Barbie for $19.95, Beach Barbie for $19.95, Disco Barbie for $19.95, Ballerina Barbie for $19.95, Astronaut Barbie for $19.95, Skater Barbie for $19.95, and Divorced Barbie for $265.95'.

The amazed father asks: 'It's what?! Why is the Divorced Barbie $265.95 and the others only $19.95?'

The annoyed salesperson rolls her eyes, sighs, and answers: 'Sir..., Divorced Barbie comes with: Ken's Car, Ken's House, Ken's Boat, Ken's Furniture, Ken's Computer, one of Ken's Friends, and a key chain made with Ken's balls.

LOL...Boy has Barbie changed with the world! My best little girlfriend "Frannie" and I both got our first Barbie dolls for our 7th birthdays which were only a week apart. Frannie, a strict Catholic took both of our dolls to the priest and had them blessed as she did with all our toys. For Christmas Frannie got a cardboard Barbie house and I got the sports car. My Barbie was the original with a blonde pony tail and Frannies had the bubble hairdo. We imagined that someday we would be teenagers like Barbie...we assumed when we turned 16 a sports car would magically appear in our front yard and soon after a circular driveway would be installed. We also thought that we would each have a white french poodle that would ride with us in the bright red sports car with the top down. When Ken came out we dreamed of having boyfriends but we never dreamed that we would ever work or get divorced...that was before "womens lib" and back in those days you married for "life"! We must have had the basic low cost Barbie...LOL
