After Burka Barbie, it was only a matter of time

Religion News Service
"With her careers as veterinarian, astronaut and U.S. president behind her, Barbie has at last found her true calling: as a second-career Episcopal priest.

The 11.5-inch-tall fictional graduate of Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, Calif., has donned a cassock and surplice and is rector at St. Barbara’s-by-the-Sea in (where else?) Malibu, Calif."

This story really can't be improved upon, except for what's in the comboxes. Some are laugh-out-loud funny, such as:

Eh...I’m not impressed. Barbie always end up naked and in the bathtub.

Or this one:
Perfect! Once again, the Episcopalians have shown themselves impossible to satirize. Deacon Ken and his “friend” Stephen! These people are beyond loony. Cleaver-Bartholomew needs create a “Parishioner Patty” doll, so there will be somebody out there listening as Bishop Barbie announces that the Church is shutting its doors forever.

Just one more: “Pope Ken I, anyone????” As long as it’s not Mod Hair Ken.
