Minnesota Barbie Dolls

Mattel recently announced the release of limited-edition Barbie Dolls for the Minnesota market:
    Minnetonka Barbie
    This princess Barbie is sold only at the Galleria. She comes with an assortment of Kate Spade Handbags, a Lexus SUV, a long-haired foreign dog named Honey, and a cookie-cutter house. Available with or without tummy tuck and face lift. Workaholic Ken sold only in conjunction with the augmented version.

    Woodbury Barbie
    The modern day homemaker Barbie is available with Ford Windstar Minivan and matching gym outfit. She gets lost easily, is always late, and has no full-time occupation or goals. Traffic jamming cell phone sold separately.

    Lake Street Barbie
    This recently paroled Barbie comes with a 9mm handgun, a Ray Lewis knife, a Chevy with dark tinted windows, and a meth lab kit. This model is only available after dark and must be paid for in cash - preferably small, untraceable bills...unless you're a cop, then we don't know what you're talking about.

    Edina Barbie
    This yuppie Barbie comes with your choice of BMW convertible or Hummer H2. Included are her own Starbucks cup, credit card, and country club membership. Also available for this set are Shallow Ken and Private School Skipper. But you won't be able to afford any of them.

    Iron Range Barbie
    This pale model comes dressed in her own Wrangler jeans two sizes too small, a NASCAR t-shirt and tweety bird tattoo on her shoulder. She has a six-pack of Bud light and a Hank Williams Jr. CD set. She can spit over 5 feet and kick mullet-haired Ken's butt when she is drunk or sober. Purchase her pickup truck separately and get a Confederate flag bumper sticker absolutely free.

    Bemidji Barbie
    This tobacco-chewing, brassy-haired Barbie has a pair of her own high-heeled sandals with one broken heel from the time she chased beer-gutted Ken out of Iron Range Barbie's house. Her ensemble includes low-rise acid-washed jeans, fake fingernails, and a see-through halter-top. Also available with a mobile home.

    Uptown Barbie
    This doll is made of actual tofu. She's stinky and has long straight brown hair, arch-less feet, hairy armpits, no makeup, and Birkenstocks with white socks. She prefers that you call her Willow. She does not want or need a Ken doll, but if you purchase two Uptown Barbies and the optional Subaru wagon, you get a rainbow flag bumper sticker for free.

    South St. Paul Barbie
    This Barbie now comes with a stroller and infant doll. Optional accessories include a GED and bus pass. Gangsta Ken and his 1979 Caddy were available, but are now very difficult to find since the addition of the infant. (Try looking in Chicago.)

    Dinkytown Barbie/Ken
    This versatile doll can be easily converted from Barbie to Ken by simply adding or subtracting the multiple snap-on parts.

I think they've missed a major MN demographic! Where's the one who drives a 10-year-old Blazer, gets lost in big cities like St. Cloud, enjoys quilting, and serves hamburger hotdish and lemon bars in the Lutheran church basement? (Of course, everybody just calls her Barb).

...Barb Hanson, that is....

...No, the other Hanson with an "o".

She did not steal that recipe; that's lies, I tell you, lies!
