See SNL’s Take on the New Barbie

By

Mattel has announced that they’re finally releasing a new line of Barbies whose bodies more closely resemble human bodies, with features including short, curvy, and not white. Last night on SNL, Kate McKinnon came on Weekend Update as one of the new Barbies that didn’t survive focus group testing, “Sturdy Barbie” — excuse me, Sturdy Barb. She definitely has some questionable features (sleep apnea machine, a high nipple-to-breast ratio), but she’s also got a Dream Ranch Home and Dream Mitsubishi Galant, and full benefits. Who can’t relate to Trying Her Best Barbie?
