Barbie, the ultimate goy, a Jew?
Check out this heritage: invented by Jewish businesswoman Ruth Handler and marketed by her husband Elliot (the ell in Mattell), Barbie is actually named for Ruth's daughter Barbara. Born to Jews, named for Jews, that's downright Jew-rific!
It's a little confusing, though. After all, what's Jewish about a blonde haired, blue eyed, airhead obsessed with clothes, cars, houses...
Oh great. The doll that every little girl is supposed to emulate — a true American icon — and she's a J.A.P.
Maybe we were better off letting her stay in the pink plastic closet.
