This is a Public Service Announcement.
If this is the first you’ve heard about the Michelle Obama doll, I would direct you to this article in
The New York Times, which describes it in detail:
The doll, scheduled for release Nov. 20, comes with three clothing options based on real dresses Mrs. Obama has worn: a purple V-neck sheath from the famous fist bump, a black-and-white floral from her appearance on “The View”, and a red-and-black frock she wore on election night. Jason Feinberg, the toy’s creator, told The Daily News that it’s no coincidence that all of the options are sleeveless.
I realize that we are all eager to get our hands on the new Michelle Obama doll. But I would be remiss if I did not remind the public to be safe while trying to acquire this high-demand item.
What could possibly go wrong, you ask?
Remember the Tickle Me Elmo craze?
What about the Cabbage Patch Riots ?
“Ancient history!” you say? What about last year’s Black Friday Wal-Mart Stampede ?
I understand that emotions run high when shopping for a hot commodity.
But I implore you:
Don’t let the raw magnetism of her toned arms cause us to act like savages.
Shop safe, and don’t disappoint Michelle. She might stop being proud of her country again.
