While watching an episode of SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS on Nickelodeon I saw an ad for the latest in the legion of Barbie doll sets and almost snarfed out my orange juice over the hilarity of the commercial.
This latest ad was for Barbie and her dog, Tanner, a cute felt-covered pooch that Barbie feeds treats to. So far, so normal.
Then the ad switched to a closeup of the dog's ass, and when you push her tail she drops a brown payload.
Said payload can then be scooped up by Barbie and placed in a handy doody recepticle.
Now ever since I was a kid I thought the myriad outfits, cars, houses, spaceships (yes, there was an astronaut Barbie during the late-1960's) and whatnot were supposed to allow little girls to live out just about any fantasy scenario that they could think of. So does this latest addition to the line mean that little girls harbor dreams of cleaning up steaming piles of dogshit?
