Iran from the Evil Barbie Doll

Iran, fearing they might become culturally, legally and morally medieval — heaven forbid — is very concerned about any importation of Barbie Dolls:

A top Iranian judiciary official has warned against the “destructive” cultural and social consequences of importing Barbie dolls and other Western toys.

Prosecutor General Ghorban Ali Dori Najafabadi said in an official letter to Vice President Parviz Davoudi that the Western toys was a “danger” that needed to be stopped.

So, in order to keep sales moving in Iran, Mattel announced the creation of the following Barbie dolls that should pass the muster of the Iranian government:

“‘Stoned to death for loving somebody of the wrong religion’ Barbie”

“‘Honor killing’ Barbie”

“‘Half the Deyeh of a man’ Barbie”

“’74 strokes of the lash for not wearing a Hejab while walking down the street’ Barbie”

“‘Flogged beyond recognition for fornicating’ Barbie”

“‘Suicidally depressed’ Barbie”

And, of course, there’s the wildly popular “**Terrorist Barbie”:
