Barbie’s all dolled up for the swimsuit issue

Bawdy image: The Barbie doll, unnatural measurements and all, is being featured in Sports Illustrated’s 50th anniversary swimsuit issue and will “own who she is” and stop apologizing for her figure, Mattel says.

You know, the kind of condescending prodding you already hear from owners of Apple iMacs, iPads and iPhones.
