Magic Fail

Hmm . . . well, look at the picture first, then we'll talk (even though it probably isn't necessary, lol.):

Now think back to 1992, which is around the time this Ken hit the shelves.  What sort of words come to mind when you think "purple leather jacket," "mesh pink shirt," and "blond highlighted hair"?  Is heterosexual one of them?  Doubtful.  It's quite the opposite, really.  

This case is interesting for one reason.  Earring Magic Ken was the best-selling Ken doll to date and they discontinued it.  Why?  Because little girls weren't the ones buying them up!  And when a newspaper in Washington revealed who was buying them and what the chrome circle dangler around his neck looked like, Matel decided to pull the plug.

Matel is a Moron for discontinuing their best seller. Who gives a flying fuck if he's a faggot.

Gays have rights too, demmit

There are just no words for all that is wrong with this. Although, Toy Story 3 reassured all our suspicions. Did they really discontinue Ken? God, I feel old!

I wonder how many people complained to get it off the shelves. We all know Ken is gay anyway. He might as well come out.
