      I dunno, I see women once in a while with swan necks so Barbie's doesn't seem that unrealistic to me.
      Her waist-line does call for the rib removal.

      Overall Barbie the Toy is obviously a fantasy, but the fantasy more in terms of proportions/elongation than in the total fat %. I dunno, I might not be making any sense here. It's basically means to me that losing weight will not achieve the more appealing body on an average figure. The average Barbnie will always look short and stocky compared to the genetically rare version.

        The Barbie on the right is just Skipper without the arm/boob pump action.

          Wasn't there a user here who claimed to be descended from Thor or something?

            Are you anatomically correct?

                    Which is a big part of the problem in this day and age- we even photoshop the genetically gifted into stylized images of a human body. Barbie's proportions...are not realistic- the world record smallest waist is 21", 3" smaller than her waist. Plus her neck is ridiculous.

                    So the comparison is a stylized toy to a toy with average proportions. No one has Barbies measurements. No one can look like Barbie. Just like no one can look like many magazine images, even the models themselves.

                        Deal.
                        Better than "correct."

                        You can send me the $5 via paypal. Thanks.

                          Why is it that I can see a tie in campaign here? Subway presents the RichMahogany $5 footlong!

                          I'll see myself out...

                            I always said I should get Subway to sponsor me in an MMA match. The front of my shorts could say "$5 foot longs" and the back could say "your choice of 8 subs"

                            But yeah, not that much better than correct

                                Wow, hadn't thought of that in years -- scared the daylights out of me. Funny thing, it's a trilogy but I don't remember the other two segments.
