Thank Heaven For Little Girls

If you haven't heard, Mattel is coming out with a special set of golf clubs aimed at girls from 4 to 6 years old. It's the Barbie Golf Set. Wow, 4 years old and being pushed into sports. Just in time for the holidays, you can get your progeny crushing, unrealistic expectations!

I'm sure this isn't because a lot of athletically frustrated parents want their kid to grow up to be Michelle Wie is it? Can you even tell if you daughter is a lesbian at that age? Trust me, I went to the Dinah Shore Classic in Palm Springs and it was lesbian Beetlemania.

I think Mattel should also come out with a Ken golf set aimed at young boys. It won't have any balls, no bag and definitely no woods.

Hiyo.... I'm here all week kids. Tip your waitstaff and bartenders. Enjoy the next act.

You know, there are days when it's okay to be yourself. Like, days when you don't have to be over-the-top clever and annoying.

Had you ever thought of this novel idea?

Or is this just me, with a PMS lasting 4 days longer than it should?

I'd like to adress the "can you tell if your daughter is a lesbian" question.

I used to babysit for a 4yr old girl who CRIED when I made her wear pink, flowers, ruffles, dresses, or anything flowery. She just wanted her jeans and boots, and to play karate like her brother.

Now she's a major bull-dyke(totally self proclaimed, I'm not being mean here). She's a cute one, but still...

Ha ha, but that is only one example...

Latte, this is really all there is. Deep down, I'm really shallow.

t2, once again you are leaving me laughing my butt off. I'm just glad my girls are over the Barbie stage and they're not lesbians, as far as I know. I actually got one of my girls to potty train w/ a Barbie bribe..Hawaiian Barbie.

Your Ken Idea is hilarious. Maybe you could cross the picket lines of the writers strike and get some of those comedy shows back on the air.

Mattel should make a guy doll that's larger than life like Barbie is, instead of imasculating him. Remember those old Nissan ?commercials where Barbie dumps preppie Ken for GI joe?

So you actually know someone who knows who Alec Guiness is? Obi Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope.

I look forward to more of your humor.

All your posts leave me laughing!

I thought the dog was named after the beer.

I don't know why people try to get paid for really cheapens it, IMHO.
