The Boys in the Lab have Really Outdone Themselves this Time

Eager to serve the I-wish-my-8-year-old-were-15-years-old crowd, Mattel has released the Barbie So Excellent Cali Girl, complete with an ear piercer and 16 earrings for the doll to wear.


The doll has three soft areas running up each earlobe. Instructions on the side of the doll's box show a set of hands swabbing the ear (to prevent the doll from getting an infection, of course), then punching a hole through the doll's ear with the provided piercer, and finally placing an earring in the newly created orifice. (Does an ear piercing count as an orifice?)
