It was only a matter of time before this happened. Symbol of the Decadent West, Barbie is facing summary execution in China over lead poisoning concerns. Ken is said to be up next in front of the firing squad, on charges of "corrupting the morals of China's youth" with his "depraved lifestyle preferences." (Most of us have known for years that the Barbie and Ken relationship was only for show, and that Ken was more interested in G.I. Joe. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Barbie was a real doll for fronting for Ken for so many years, IMHO.)
I, for one, will miss Babs. She was the only female I knew who never, ever made a fuss when you took her pants down.
