Yo, please RT!

Whattup beautiful young women who think it’s cool to take your clothes off for HBO and young men who are interested in ecology instead of wrestling! Today I want to rap at you about a cool new toy hitting some of your local independent underground toy stores. It’s the Katniss Everdeen Hunger Games movie tie-in Barbie doll, yo! The Girl Who Was On Kindle Fire! #SoRad. Hey, Easter peeps candy this from the toy’s designer (via EW):

“I chose to dress her in the outfit she wears during the games, since this is where all the non-stop action takes place and is instantly recognizable by fans,” says Greening of the Katniss Barbie. “Of course, she wears her mockingjay pin proudly on her lapel.”

Yuuuuuup. Non-stop action, fer sure. That’s a totally cool way to talk about teenagers slaughtering each other in a post-Apocalyptic dystopian nightmare. “Action and excitement, dawg!” This is swagger! Check out a full image of the hot new Barbie that is totally respectful to the reality of women’s bodies and the heroism of female counter-revolutionaries after the jump:

Someone should make a Hunger Games cootie catcher. “Will you date me?” “Will you hunt me down in the jungle and shoot my face with an arrow?” Hey pass that bug juice! Swagger.
