I still haven’t seen the Barbie movie. (I hear it’s great!)


But I do want to note that Tony Isabella wrote this before the movie came out. So, if the film has a similar joke, it’s copying Tony. Not the other way around.

And, Hollywood, we’re okay with that. Really. But if you want to send Tony, colorist Diego Jourdan Pereira (and me) some barrels of movie money, we are even more okay with that!

WOMAN: I’m living my best Barbie life. Like her, I have my own dream house...and my own dream car...and multiple professional careers...and a second dream house for my  clothes. Life would be perfect if only...my hot boyfriend and I...had genitals.
