Sign Of The Times

Well, it's official- the housing crunch has hit everywhere. Dolls are now vacating their houses faster than a hippie at a Dokken concert. It's quite tragic, really. The unfortunately named "Barbie's Dream House" is now a haven for mosquito infested pools and broken dreams. Where once Ken parked his Winnebago, today sits a junkyard of old convertibles on bricks and Zenith TV's from 1982. When will it end? There is even a homeless (this is true) American Girl Doll. At least Pokemon is going strong.

I saw this on my street today. Somewhere there is a miniature family weeping. That, or a child too old for toys that represent stability and family values.

Hah- yeah, I was really sad to see that. I kind of wanted it, but then I remembered I'm in my early 30's.
