Tweets from 140 Characters or Less – Barbie

A mainstay in children’s toy chests for decades, Barbie—with her classic fixed smile and unrealistic body proportions—wants to be a mainstay on Twitter, too:

I want a limited edition “I wish a bitch would…” Barbie.

 

Although many of the tweets I saw look like they tell a narrative of bad decision making—starting with her packing decisions:

Her skin is going to be as black as her outfit from frostbite.

 

And while some children may be a bit hasty with a pair of scissors when it comes to Barbie’s hair, perhaps they were only trying to save her from herself:

 

Coming off a meth high.

 

And then there is just a whole host of questions about her personal relationships with people:

 

Barbie: DAMN IT CARLY. YOU COULD’VE JUST TOLD ME THERE WAS NO MORE ROOM IN THE CAR INSTEAD OF THROWING ME OUT. Driver: Um you fell out…

 

But whenever Barbie’s life goes off the rails she has a neutered mainstay in her life to keep her on track: Ken.

Judging by the positioning of his package, I’m going to guess “working genitalia.”
