On This Day: Barbie and Ken Break Up
Today in 2004, Mattel announced that Barbie and Ken were breaking up.
Mattel was reluctant to give further information on the details of this tragic break up, but only too soon was Barbara Millicent Roberts seen cavorting around town with Blaine. The two were caught playing Rebound® together, whilst Ken was at home tending to Skipper’s growing needs.
However, Ms. Roberts’ relationship with Blaine seemed short lived, as after a few weeks she was often seen alone, sipping a cappucino whilst playing UNO®.
Thankfully, America’s favorite genital-free couple finally admitted that they just couldn’t stay away from each other, and got back together in 2006.
They are currently doing very well under the care of Disney Princesses® couples therapy.
