Revenge of the nerds: How Barbie got her geek on!

There's a new Barbie doll coming out and young girls had the chance to vote for what career they thought she should do. The girls voted for "Anchorwoman Barbie." Adults? They overwhelmingly voted for "Computer Engineer!" This got us thinking: what career do YOU think Barbie should have?!

On a christian note, seeing barbie as nun would be cool. No, wait, I've got it! A missionary! Wouldn't that be cool? A Christian barbie. To bad it probably will never happen. Laughing

I also think seeing her as a plumber would be hilariously ironic.

I have a 2-year-old son who LOVES my in-law's farm.  So, for my 6-month-old daughter's sake, I'd like to see Farmer Barbie, complete with blue and white striped bibs, cowboy hat, muddy boots, and a combine.  Chew tobacco optional.

Hi Scott and Kelli,
  I would love Barbie to help our friends in need. Imagine Barbie taking her clothes and food to shelters and to food banks and be a teacher to teach children its better to give than to receive.
Imagine Barbie teaching children we reap what we sow.
  Imagine Barbie taking her clothes and shoes and hats and sunglasses to shelters where kids have very little to play with.
  And better yet, imagine all the money raised for this Barbie the teacher, the giver to be given to homeless shelters, family homeless shelters, food banks and non profits in need of help : )
  Thanks for reading this! I would love for the kids to learn the joy that God gives when we help our friends in need!
  Your sister in Christ!

Hmmmm...how about different sort of fast food girl. Like Pizza Hut or Taco Bell. Lol. Put her with the little sombraro wearing dog. Lol.
Or how about a Barbie wearing a Super Suit like Ralph off of "The Greatest American Hero" or make her a prisoner like in "Hogan's Heroes" lol. She can fight the bad guys from with in. Lol. (No, I am not an oldie to know those shows. I am 18 and just love watching oldies.)

I was reading an article from the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio and then heard you guys on the radio last night talking about Barbie. A church in northern Ohio did "Episcopal Priest Barbie" This was to teach the Sunday School kids what all the Vestments were. Thought you would enjoy this. Here is Episcopal Barbie's Facebook page.

Trapped in the 80's Barbie!  She would wear the Guess Jeans with the zipper leg closure and a fuzzy pink sweater that sheds everywhere!  Hoop earrings that touch her shoulders and get tangled in her back-combed hair would complete the look!  She would also come with a complementary pack of bubble gum.  Awesome!

A speaker, and someone who encourages people, a politician, computer geek, or a government worker, or just a mother, it depends on Barbie, or a role model, or a dancer,

I really don't approve of Barbie Dolls. I think that they are a doll that gives an 'image' to girls to look like. And we are perfect in God's eyes (in terms of looks, shape etc. we are are all sinners)
