Not On My Watch

Michelle Malkin reports on the Bratzification of Trolls, those stupid little dolls with bug eyes and long hair that some people apparently find cute n' cuddly.

Anybody who has small girls will know that the Bratz are a line of dolls that, well, glorify skankdom. Why on Earth anybody would actually encourage their daughters to play with these things is quite beyond me, but it seems a great number of parents do. Now, apparently, someone has got the bright idea of taking all their worst attributes and grafting them on to other doll lines, all with the aim of targeting four to eight year olds. (Michelle has some suggestions about where this trend might lead. She's being sarcastic, but I'll bet someone, somewhere is even now scratching his head and thinking "Hmmmm.....")

Sigh. Just one more band of roving orcs against which we'll have to shield the Llama-ettes.

Every time I'm around my hyperactive nephews, I pray to God that the Feared Redhead gives birth to a girl. Then I read something like this and think, "aw, crap, I can't win!"

Alas, I've got hyperactive daughters, so get the worst of both worlds.

Hyperactive? You are joking, right?
