Virgin Mary Barbie Doll

Created by Argentinian artists Pool Paolini and Marianela Perelli as part of a "Barbie, The Plastic Religion" exhibit. Their idea was that, "If there’s a Barbie doctor, a teacher and a police officer, why shouldn’t there be a Virgin of Luján Barbie?” So they've created 33 different Barbie and Ken dolls portraying various religious figures from Catholicism, Judaism, Buddhism and Islam. Obviously controversy has ensued. More info: patheos.com, metro.co.uk

That should offend just about everybody! If those two wind up dead (a not unlikely possibility), where would start looking?

So is the Jesus Ken got correct manly equipment under that white cloth? Wonder if he and Virgin Barbie ever like hooked up, he's got a hot body. And where is the dripping blood from the spear wound and nail holes or did you have to pay extra for that. I'm sure Jesus Ken was not a virgin being a radical, charming prophet. Like the green snake around Virgin Barbie's feet.

Well, the artists may just become responsible for a miracle, when all religions agree- to hate them.

@KDP: You're welcome.

(Note the use of the correct contraction of 'you are' and not the possessive pronoun 'your'.)

Well I heard from a good source,(Mrs. Betty Bowers, Americas best Christian) that Cain slept with his mother because god stopped making women after Eve and that's about the only way his wife could have arrived. So he had a daughter by his mother who he in-turn had kids with his daughter. Vise is nice, but incest is best.

At least it keeps it all in the family.

Then Adam asked, "What can I get for a rib?"
