“Stretch Armstrong here, reporting from what can only be described as chaos. Casualties are piling up like cord wood. Indescribable horror, Potato Head is searching for eyes, hot wheels are over-turned, transformers are sorting dislodged parts.  Pure madness?”

Turning to his left, he gasped, Weebles were falling like winter snow under the tall blonde’s stilettos. Pissed because they wobbled, refusing to fall down, she kicked her way through the mass until she reached the clown. Lifting him over her head, she slam dunked him into the foam piano.

“For the last time, stay out of my make-up!” Barbie screamed.

    That is just delightful, darling. I thought it was going to be a child doing the shoving, though. Stretch Armstrong was a nice touch.

    Oh no, Barbie finally snapped! One wonders if it was because Ken was stealing time with the Bratz dolls! Where are woody and buzz when you need them!
