It's Barbie's 50th Birthday...But Don't Say This About It

The Barbie doll is turning 50 this month, and for some reason, no one can talk about it without making a Barbie-looks-hot-for-a-50-year-old-type joke.

From CBS News:
"Even without plastic surgery, she’s still buff and wrinkle free."

From the BBC:
"She's not got a wrinkle on her forehead or a single grey hair."

From Heidi Klum:
"I hope that with 50 I look as good as Barbie does."

From the AFP:
"She heads into her second half century without a wrinkle or grey hair."

Don't say stuff like that anymore.

Why: It's creepy.
