Happy Birthday Barbie

This plastic icon is fifty today. But is she a bad influence? I am sure she has had some influence in the craze for plastic surgery and breast argumentation which has produced generations of human Barbie clones. Academics at the University of South Australia calculated that the likelihood of a real woman having Barbie’s proportions is one in 100,000, with Body Mass Index in the unhealthy category. So she is a bad dolly and unhealthy.
