IRAN...SO FAR AWAY

An Iranian toy company called Fam is sick and tired of all the little girls in Iran being corrupted by the evil, wicked doll called Barbie that America, the Great Satan, is foisting upon the pure Persian state.

Hossein Homay Seresht, Fam's CEO or president or whatever they call people who run companies in places like Iran, says he began production of "Fatima," a Barbie antidote that comes complete with a head scarf and Islamic robes, to fight "the enemy's cultural invasion.".

"By creating Barbie and marketing it, Westerners are encouraging bad veiling and not wearing the hijab. All of these factors led us to take it as our duty to present Islamic dolls to the market," Seresht said.

No word yet on Ken's Iranian counterpart, but it's hard to argue that Ken hasn't been quite the disturbing presence in American life, too:
