The latest children’s toy has just hit the shops - a talking Muslim doll.

Nobody knows what the hell it says ‘cause no one has the balls to pull the cord.

One good thing is that Barbie’s head comes off easily—makes honor killing easier.

Ernie.....you have to see this one...... heheheh. Not to appear to dramatic. But often people here say they almost choked on some really good remark by someone. Well I just almost choked to death while reading it filling my mouth with some Chianti....how I did not splurt out all over the key board..... Ev Reeman should received some kind of award for this one.

I know they made a Michelle doll long ago. Don’t recall seeing an Opra doll but she might not have liked seeing her fat self either.

This is hardly new or unique. We purchased Saudi Barbie in 2002 ish for our daughter which came with the habbiyah and a lovlely outfit underneath.

I remember seeing Barbie in the Army dress blue uniform with floor length skirt with the officer’s stripe (she was a major in the Army nurse corps IIRC).

It was part of Barbie makes one of many career professional choices.

Nowadays how about LEO Barbie in combat gear taking down that worthless murdering creep NidalMalikHasan?

So sick of soft-on-Islam PC. And women are its victims.
