Mattel recently announced the release of eleven limited-edition Barbie Dolls for the Greater Indianapolis market:

Best Evarrrr And Completely True:

Broad Ripple Barbie: This doll is made of actual tofu. She has long straight brown hair, arch less feet, hairy armpits, no makeup and Birkenstocks with white socks. She prefers that you call her Willow. She does not want or need a Ken doll, but if you purchase two Broad Ripple Barbies and the optional Subaru wagon, you get a rainbow flag bumper sticker for free.

ETA: Even more amused; on a suspicion, I googled "This doll is made of actual tofu." The whole thing, with variations, has been applied and re-applied to various regions all over the U.S. ~ I could be annoyed, but why bother -- it's even more hilarious that a) it fits and b) these (stereo)types are so ubiquitous.

I have Doctor Who. New Doctor Who. That was really broadcasted on the really real telly. Not, you know, my really real telly, but it's not like we'uns in the Colonies ever did get the eps new. And by new I mean "within a year of having first been broadcast."

*pets The Internets*

*burns to DVD for the bringing along to ConneXions*

(Doctor Who. Not the Internets. The Internets are too big to fit on one DVD. I think it would take at least 3.)

Also, Puppet Spike and I shall be pretty much incommunicado (Unless you're weird enough to have my cell number. Or feel like texting me, but I'm unlikely to have the chance to answer.) from tomorrow through next Monday, for lo, to Baltimore we go*
