Mad Men Barbie Dolls Teach Children About Gin-Soaked Misogyny

“Oh, Sandy just loves her new Mad Men Barbie dolls. I’ve never seen the show myself, but sometimes when I’m taking my afternoon lie-down in the living room, I can hear her playing with them through the cool damp towel I drape over my eyes, and some of the things she has them doing are just so creative. She has quite an imagination. Why just the other day, she had one of them, the red-headed one, I think, Jane? She had Jane telling the white haired one, Richard, that if he didn’t want to marry her, she was going to hit him in the head with a lamp. And then her Baby Wee Wee got tipsy and rode a lawn mower over everyone’s feet and that’s why Dan Dropo had to leave his wife, Betsy, because the blood reminded him of how he stole a man’s game in the war? I don’t know where she gets this stuff, but we try to encourage her.”
