Buying a Barbie Doll? Why is the gentleman, who has no children, nieces or nephews, in line to buy a Barbie doll? An atrocious pun for the punch line!
This weekend while shopping in a local toy store, I came across a long line of people waiting for a promised shipment of dolls from Mattel. As I scanned the line, I noticed a friend waiting with all the others. I knew my friend had no daughters or young relatives, so I figured he must like the dolls himself.
“Bill,” I said going up to him, “I didn’t know you were a collector!”
“I’m not,” he replied.
“Oh,” I said, “You’re buying a gift, then.”
“No, not at all,” my friend responded.
“If you don’t mind my asking then Bill,” I said, “Why are you standing in this line?”
“Oh that,” he answered. “It’s like this,” my friend stated, . . .”I’ve never been able to resist a barbie queue!”
