Iranian Barbie

Iran is unveiling a new line of dolls to compete with our evil western Barbie...the new dolls are just like our fun-loving California girl, except that she's named Sara and wears traditional clothes that - of course - can't be taken off.

Ken's counterpart is called Dara, in keeping with the Western Ken's long-running tradition of being a flaming homosexual.

Sales have thus far been non-existent. Iran first announced it would produce Sara and Dara in 1996, but technical problems (huh?) delayed production until now.
