Barbie


Ok. So I was really bored and I didn't have anything too too exciting to blog about. So here goes. I was looking for random words (well actually one word in particular, but I couldn't find it..barbindignageeous) and so I shortened that and looked up barbie Here is what I got:

Oh crap. It actually worked... ok nevermind... but the FIRST (lol) deffinition that I got was something along these lines:

Main Entry: barbiePart of Speech: nDefinition: barbecueEtymology: from barbe(cue)Usage: Australian slang


This one made more sense.

Bar⋅bie

[bahr-bee] Show IPA
1.Trademark. a brand of doll representing a slim, shapely young woman, esp. one with blond hair, blue eyes, and fair skin.
–noun
2.Also called Barbie doll. a person, esp. a young woman, perceived as blandly attractive and vacuous.


SO.. UGH I CAN'T STOP WRITING LIKE THIS... barbie is actually an australian word for barbecue. so when little girls are going on to their girlfriends "Let's play Barbie's! Let's play Barbie's!" They might as well be saying.. "Let's fire up the barbie eh mate?"

Hope I expanded your thinking about Barbie, and gave you a clearer understanding.
