It’s Thursday caption time once again, although I’m kind of hoping the image I picked will inspire some discussion, too. I found it on Reddit, so the source is unknown (I would love to know if it was originally posted with some context, although the images says quite a bit.)
Barbie seems to have done a little changing since the 90’s, yeah? Bad enough the poor lady has to live in a state of perpetual tippy-toe and serious panty lines, now she looks as though she’s about to drop gracefully into a back bend at any second. You’re in your sixties, Barbie! Mind your lower back!

Anybody else notice that classic Barbie had the same figure as Jayne Mansfield? Anyone, Bueller?
“There can be only one!”
(Or, wait…was my first ever Persephone comment supposed to be something more sophisticated than a “Highlander” reference?)
Feeling the pressure to keep up with her younger competition, 90s Barbie, in a desperate attempt to lose weight, undergoes a radical headectomy.
In fact, that’s the best caption I can come up with.
“Got yer head Bitch!”
That’s a medical condition called lordosis. And I’m pretty sure Barbie had a head is the 90’s. I think I would have remembered a decade of headless dolls.
She had the Heidi Pratt back scoop!
