What is Wrong with this Picture?



It is like a plague. nekid Barbies everywhere. They just seem to sprout wherever you don't want them. They are like a weed. I doubt you could find a room in our house without a nekid Barbie. It is because of events such as these that turns perfectly good PG movies into trashy PG-13 movies, No? Why the kids prefer to play with them a-natural, I will never know [Get your minds out of the gutter]. I was looking through some other pictures we've taken this year and there is more than just this one that inconspicuously has a nekid Barbie in it.

For Any Calvin and Hobbes fans, there is a classic that has Calvin's dad trying to take pictures of Calvin and with every shot, Calvin is making some sort of face or refusing to hold still. In another caption, the two parents are discussing how they can possibly send any pictures to other members of their family. Calvin's mom makes the statement to the effect, "Well that is Calvin" [meaning, anything else would be a false portrayal].

So my question is, are we doomed to forever be the family of the nekid Barbies? Can we ever truthfully show humanity anything else that accurately reflects who we really are?

I love the nekid barbies! I hope my house is full of them when Addie gets older. Who could ask for more?

I love it. I had a barbie 'world' in my closet as a little girl... We had big walk in closets with our dressers in them... The dresser drawers were different 'apartment levels' for each family.

I think it's kinda funny that the nekid Barbie is next to the Santa who is looking kind of worried and scared who is next to the Article of Faith about being punished for our transgressions. Stay strong Santa!!!! Look away!!! Just look away!!!

All kidding aside, I never had Barbies growing up and my daughter didn't have them either so I don't know what it's like finding nekid dolls all over. I guess it's no big deal but I think it would be a little annoying to have them pop up in family pictures.

And I think it's funny that the barbie is next to the book titled A Season Of Joy.

Merry Christmas.

Frankly I think having nekid barbies around isn't nearly as bad as stumbling upon barbies whose heads have been decapitated by fireworks.

Seriously...

Even with 4 girls, I don't remember seeing too many nekid Barbies around our house. I'm sorry Lyle, but it must be some kind of strange disease your kids have. Jk ;)

Really though, the nekid Barbie phenomenon has been widely observed so try as you might to proclaim otherwise, your family is normal.

Keep your eyes on your companion, Santa. Oh, that is just too funny.

No nekid barbies at my house. Just decapitated Legos.
