"Barbie and Ken splitting after 43 years; Mattel reports that dolls will remain friends" reports MSNBC
After 43 years as one of the world’s prettiest pairs, the perfect plastic couple is breaking up. The couple’s “business manager,” Russell Arons, vice president of marketing at Mattel, said that Barbie and Ken “feel it’s time to spend some quality time — apart.”
There’s a joke in this story — I know it. Maybe something to do with "same sex marriages" or Massachusetts or something. Maybe something regarding the fact that the scary folks at Mattel apparently don’t realize that Ken and Barbie are dolls.
