    He is way cuter, isn’t he? Why does Barbie’s hair always look like it’s been through a blender? Elementary my dear, Barbie…

    Is that a murse he’s carrying? And I think RDJ looks like Dr. House in that first real life pic.

    My daughter and I were watching an E! special on Charlie Sheen and his troubles. I commented, “I don’t get the feeling he’s going to pull a Robert Downey, Jr.” She asked what I was talking about and explained RDJ’s substance abuse and legal struggles.

    She sat there in mild shock, querying, “Iron Man? You’re talking about Iron Man?!”

    Barbie could use a good razor cut and some conditioner. And Sherlock Ken should wear shoes because his manhood is not looking very promising with *his* tiny feet, either.

    Barbie Theater: AWESOME as usual.

    also, I agree with #7, I often wonder if he just sold his soul to the devil or what, but RDJ is hella fine.

    I like the snappy outfit! Ken used to have just army fatigues and a Nehru jacket in the old days.

    It amazes me constantly how topics of the web are ‘in the air’, the following will take you to a link that I dare you all to read without getting a pang of a tear, it was posted today also and while it may not be as hilarious as Bossy’s Barbie theatre puppets, it WILL answer those that think RDJ sold his soul. The devil doesn’t have enough $ for something so humanely in tune with others. That is his secret, and to top it off he’s a health nut now, with his own bizarre spiritual side, an amalgamation of many different cultures. And everyday he has to work at staying clean. Here’s the link
    it’s worth the read: http://aliciabessette.com/blog/?p=1104

    My husband and I attended grief counseling after seeing this movie—we were so PROFOUNDLY disappointed it was like a death in our lives.

    Meantime, piggy backing on Foolery’s observation, Headless Man, what with his tiny feet and nonexistent parts, should just hang himself with that necktie.

    Assuming he had a neck, that is.

    I live for Barbie Theater.
