West Virginia state delegate wants to ban Barbie dolls

My slogan at my home blog says- "The world is full of nuts, and like a chipmunk I know where to find them.' Well here's another one-

Barbie could get an unwelcome present for her 50th birthday: outlawed in West Virginia.

A state lawmaker proposed a bill Tuesday to ban sales of the iconic Mattel doll and others like her.

The Barbie Ban Bill, proposed by Democratic Delegate Jeff Eldridge (D) Lincoln County, says such toys influence girls to place too much importance on physical beauty, at the expense of their intellectual and emotional development.

Jeff Eldridge doesn't sound too well intellectually developed himself. Did he play too much with GI Joe, Tonka trucks, Matchbox cars? We got to get those outlawed too in West Virginia and elsewhere before the world is overrun by more Jeff Eldridges.

Too darn many screwballs in... (Below threshold)

Too darn many screwballs in the world, I can tell you. Then again it's West Virginia where even having teeth is a rarity.
