It’s Cryogenically Frozen Barbie. And she will remain that way until “the boys down in the lab” at Mattel discover a cure for purple plastic legs.

What The P Lutheran is going to say here is true, all of it.

Our Marta, when she was a wee bern, used to own and play with a Barbie doll. Somewhere along the way its head came off and was lost. She continued to play with this headless Barbie and even gave it a name: Plum Head.

This is the single, greatest trivia item you’ll ever need to know about Barbara Millicent Roberts. Even greater than finding out she was hanging with an Australian surfer dude, Blaine, in the two years she and Ken (Carson) were separated … until Ken’s makeover.

Barbie also set the world upside down when she was misquoted as having said, “Math is hard!“, when what she actually said was, “Math class is tough!“. Well, you know what? Both statements are true! It’s tough now and it was tough in Bible times. See here:

Ezekiel   48:8-22

“Adjoining the territory of Judah, from the east side to the west, shall be the portion which you shall set apart, 25,000 cubits in breadth, and in length equal to one of the tribal portions, from the east side to the west, with the sanctuary in the midst of it. The portion that you shall set apart for the Lord shall be 25,000 cubits in length, and 20,000 in breadth. These shall be the allotments of the holy portion: the priests shall have an allotment measuring 25,000 cubits on the northern side, 10,000 cubits in breadth on the western side, 10,000 in breadth on the eastern side, and 25,000 in length on the southern side, with the sanctuary of the Lord in the midst of it. This shall be for the consecrated priests, the sons of Zadok, who kept my charge, who did not go astray when the people of Israel went astray, as the Levites did.  And it shall belong to them as a special portion from the holy portion of the land, a most holy place, adjoining the territory of the Levites.  And alongside the territory of the priests, the Levites shall have an allotment 25,000 cubits in length and 10,000 in breadth. The whole length shall be 25,000 cubits and the breadth 20,000. They shall not sell or exchange any of it. They shall not alienate this choice portion of the land, for it is holy to the Lord.

“The remainder, 5,000 cubits in breadth and 25,000 in length, shall be for common use for the city, for dwellings and for open country. In the midst of it shall be the city, and these shall be its measurements: the north side 4,500 cubits, the south side 4,500, the east side 4,500, and the west side 4,500. And the city shall have open land: on the north 250 cubits, on the south 250, on the east 250, and on the west 250. The remainder of the length alongside the holy portion shall be 10,000 cubits to the east, and 10,000 to the west, and it shall be alongside the holy portion. Its produce shall be food for the workers of the city. And the workers of the city, from all the tribes of Israel, shall till it. The whole portion that you shall set apart shall be 25,000 cubits square, that is, the holy portion together with the property of the city.

“What remains on both sides of the holy portion and of the property of the city shall belong to the prince. Extending from the 25,000 cubits of the holy portion to the east border, and westward from the 25,000 cubits to the west border, parallel to the tribal portions, it shall belong to the prince. The holy portion with the sanctuary of the temple shall be in its midst. It shall be separate from the property of the Levites and the property of the city, which are in the midst of that which belongs to the prince. The portion of the prince shall lie between the territory of Judah and the territory of Benjamin.

And this isn’t even The Book of Numbers.

Give it up, internet wiseguys, it’s just a toy.

Romans 13:10   Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
