Happy Birthday Barbie

Fifty doesn't look bad, really. Of course, here chez Borepatch, we're partial to chicks with guns.

You can't talk about Barbie without landing in a swamp of Political Correctness, and I'm simply not interested. Let me just say that after accessorizing her with a pink
Ruger 10/22M1 Garand*, Barbie is now even more politically incorrect. Free to be strong and feminine. Leftie's heads exploding fembot-like in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

*See comments.

Dude, epic gun identification fail.

That is clearly a pink M1 garand... which is a frightening and blasphemous thought in and of itself, but I digress.

Gak. Epic fail, indeed. Even though I'd RTFA a couple months ago, I'd forgotten:

Hot Pink Rifle
This is a GI Joe White M-1 Dress rifle. I painted it pink with nail polish. (Forgive me Joe!)

And I'd even had one of those white Garands with my Marine dress blue G.I. Joe when I was a kid.
