A shocking report from the Associated Press:

Barbie, beware. The iconic plastic doll is often mutilated at the hands of young girls, according to research published Monday by British academics. "The girls we spoke to see Barbie torture as a legitimate play activity, and see the torture as a 'cool' activity," said Agnes Nairn, one of the University of Bath researchers. "The types of mutilation are varied and creative, and range from removing the hair to decapitation, burning, breaking and even microwaving."

We're sure John McCain is hard at work finding a legislative solution to this outrage. We need to send "a message to the world that the United States is not like the terrorists," that we are "a nation that upholds values and standards of behavior and treatment." If Barbie isn't saved, the terrorists will have won!
