Just off the wire!  "Fibro Barbie has been immediatley recalled after millions are sold over the Internet.  Outrage by the AMA, PETA, The Office of Consumer Affairs and The FDA have triggered this unprecedented action against the Hushimituglita Toy Company, maker of the doll. Dr. Phinneaus Backsnapper refers to the doll as a fraud, as in his opinion, there is no such thing as fibromyalgia and the strange symptoms Barbie exhibits are fostering unnecessary hypochondria among many healthy patients that just suffer from nothing more than excruitating, daily pain.  PETA is furious with Barbie's wardrobe, as it includes goosedown and whale blubber, exploiting helpless animals.
It has been reported that over 100 dogs went cross-eyed after mistaking the doll for a chew toy and gnawing on her toxic legs, which are said to be laced with Polymygroabamine and Reficoabic Acid.  In a remote field in Nebraska, members of the NRA are taking the dolls from their mommies and using them to skeet shoot, eliminating the problem in a non violent protest.
One anonymous significant other is said to have watched the doll crawl on her belly for a Hostess Twinkie that had fallen off the counter and stamped her dead with his Herman Munster foot.  SQUISH!  It appears it was HIS Twinkie and he was not willing to share.
There is no refund for Fibro Barbie, but the toy company has offered an even exchange for PMS Barbie, Menopausal Barbie or 'Gee, I'm Just So Good Lookin' Barbie.  Return your doll at an address that will be given to you by an automated recording at 1-800-Hunchback and select your replacement."
Oh the humanity!

I still say you should write a book of anecdotes, Donna. Have you ever read David Sedaris' Me Talk Pretty One Day. ? You could do something like that. You'd be great at it!

Keep your fibro-Barbies, ladies!  I sent my three recalled dolls back to the company and they mailed me 'Bloated Barbie, Hammertoe Barbie and Prego Barbie'!  It's a conspiracy, I tell you...a conspiracy!  Keep the doll and just don't let your dog or children chew on it.

I miss her so much already...her little body gimping for the Ho Ho's....that yelp she would give me when I pulled off her socks...those tiny toes rolling up into a ball while I helped her to the potty...the way her hip would crunch when I made her play Twister with the neighborhood kids....

I LOVE YOU, FIBRO BARBIE!  I'll be thinking of you as a scoff down this chocolate layer cake!
