Oh, there’s something wrong with what my Stacy says. — Celeste
My Spidey Sense is tingling! Anybody call for a web slinger? — Malibu Stacy, “Lisa v. Malibu Stacy”
Thanks to Katie, who tipped us off to today’s reference: the Barbie Liberation Organization, whose members speak up for the glass-eyed figurines among us. In a coordinated act of culture jamming, the BLO went around switching the voice chips between Barbie and G.I. Joe dolls, striking a blow for women’s rights. Check it out:
Flash forward to Ancient Babylonia! While the work of the BLO briefly drew its share of media coverage, I suspect that the cost and time required to buy/steal the dolls, modify them, and then return them to the scene of the crime made a full-scale revolution impractical. For now.
And, remember, friends: As of this post, The Springfield Historical Society enters “lite mode”. Fewer posts, less fun. Resist the temptation to read or talk to loved ones, and maybe I’ll drop you a line someday from wherever I wind up in this crazy, old world.
