The Divorced Barbie Doll

My apologies to you trashy readers, I was sick last night so I did not have time or energy to write you a thought provoking original post of mine. I am truly sorry. So to make it up to you here is a nice little joke I got in an email a while back. I hope you like it.

One day a father gets out of work and on his way home he suddenly remembers that it's his daughter's birthday.

He pulls over to a Toy Shop and asks the sales person, “How much for one of those Barbie's in the display window?”

The salesperson answers, “Which one do you mean, Sir? We have: Work Out Barbie for $19.95, Shopping Barbie for $19.95, Beach Barbie for $19.95, Disco Barbie for $19.95, Ballerina Barbie for $19.95, Astronaut Barbie for $19.95, Skater Barbie for $19.95, and Divorced Barbie for $265.95.”

The amazed father asks: “It's what?! Why is the Divorced Barbie $265.95 and the others only $19.95?”

The annoyed salesperson rolls her eyes, sighs, and answers: “Sir, Divorced Barbie comes with: Ken's Car, Ken's House, Ken's Boat, Ken's Furniture, Ken's Computer, one of Ken's Friends, and a key chain made with Ken's balls.”


  1. That was groan worthy. Great joke. lol

  2. I hear that Divorced Ken is $600 because he comes with alimony payments.

  3. Ouch. Ken now sleeps in the box he came in, when he should have pulled out of the other box that he came in.
    cheers, Sausage...

  4. @ Ts, thank you.

    @ Rosie, I am sure she gets that as well.

    @ Kat, that is true.

    @ Sausage, that right there is the comment of the day.

  5. lol @kat and sausage...

    btw...i gave you an award on my eviltwin site...it will post after noon...

    gots a meeting today...

    work is bullshit finding it is even worse...

  6. Hahah, whatever, we all knew Ken was gay anyways :)

  7. It is obvious from the car that Ken is a stinkin Dallas Fan - so no wonder she left him! Hope that you are feeling better!

  8. I can't even believe I Laughed out loud to that one. lol

  9. @ Bruce, ok I will check it out. And you are correct about the work thing.

    @ Texa, that might be true.

    @ Laughingmom, I did not notice that, but that explains a lot.

    @ Cinderita, glad I could make you laugh.

  10. That would be funny if it weren't the opposite of my situation. Only no balls to be had on a keychain for the ex-hubs...

  11. Sounds like she comes with Ken's balls as well.

  12. Ok I didn't see that coming, good one.

  13. @ Heather, thank you.

    @ Randomgirl, I am sorry.

    @ Tony, yep she does.

    @ Lurker, neither did I when I read it.

  14. Love this post, especially the part about the balls on a key chain!

    Hope you are feeling better Oily : )

  15. I always wondered where Ken's balls were.

  16. Funny. :D

    Here's a Connecticut version I posted a few months ago.

  17. Way funny! Did Ken ever get laid? Or was he just there to support her shopping habits?

  18. @ Empress, thank you. I am starting to feel better thanks.

    @ Ruth, exactly.

    @ G, thanks.

    @ Bushman, I am pretty sure he was only there to buy her lazy ass stuff.

  19. Feel better soon guy!

    Oh and have you seen one of the LFL games?

    I hope they come to Canada. http://toronto.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20110414/lingerie-football-women-toronto-110414/20110414/?hub=TorontoNewHome

  20. Fantastic! Ken's balls for a necklace......

  21. NICE!!! Ken is on discount though -1/2 off!

  22. I followed you here from your comment on Ruth's blog because your moniker caught my attention, also living in oilfield territory. I loved this post, gave me a great chuckle for the day and a joke that I'll have to pass on. I'll definitely be stopping by again, looks like a great place to visit. There should be more blogging dads!!

  23. @ Galore, thank you. And actually I have seen that. It cracks me up.

    @ Barb, thank you.

    @ Al, exactly.

    @ Kristen, true that.

    @ David, thank you.

    @ Josie, thanks for stopping by.

    @ Mack, yes she is a ho.

  24. Wish it always worked that way. Darn. I should've married Ken.

  25. Meanwhile, Ken's banging Midge like a screen door...

  26. @ Robyn, yep that is true.

    @ Bluzdude, that is beyond true. Midge also talks less so I guess it is worth the price he paid.

  27. It was divorce foresight that produced Ken without genitalia.

    It's true.

    Okay, it's not. But still.



  28. Guess they didn't have a prenup...can't imagine she'd get the family jewels had there been one.

    Okay, I know it's a sad reality, but it was one helluva clever way to illustrate it. lol

  29. @ Stephanie, that is so true.

    @ Pat, yes it is.

    @ Optomom, exactly.

    @ Virgin, I don't think that they did.

  30. Ken's pride, Ken's livelihood, Ken's hopes and dreams, etc... no wonder it's so expensive.

  31. I wouldn't get the daughter the divorce barbie. Don't want to make her a free loader in the making.

  32. @ Ditz, that is a very valid point.


I love comments, so please leave one for me.
