Points In Case, an online humor site aimed at college students and recent grads, has published a post featuring images of six imaginary Barbie dolls: Rehab Barbie, Facebook Barbie, Xbox Barbie, Hotflash Barbie, Lesbian Barbie and “Illegal Immigrant” Barbie. Janet Eve Josselyn, who wrote the post, offers Mattel “contemporary alternatives to existing Barbie dolls,” and provides deriding captions for each doll.
For immigrant Barbie, Josselyn writes:
Illegal immigrant Barbie is tethered to a bunch of children and comes with a compass and a coyote. Her hair is unkempt and her cheeks lack the rosy glow of the 20th century Barbies. She is armed with wire cutters and sandwiches wrapped in tin foil. She clutches Ken’s phone number in the event that she is detained by the Border Patrol.
The doll, which is pregnant with a black eye, is seen pushing a grocery cart full of children and beer cases–and carries a bag of cigarettes, hard liquor and a mac and cheese box.
This imaginary Barbie is thankfully not for sale.
