Gundy's post reminded me of this awesome story I heard on This American Life a couple times by a girl who worked at FAO Schwartz selling designer baby dolls and the one deformed doll they called "Nubbins".

Yeah it was kind of sad when I heard that story. I remember that mom who came in with her kid and wanted the raggedy display model over the dark skinned one.

They can redress those as Sasha or Malia now, I bet!! lol

was one of the best TAL ever. It showed everything wrong with America in a just one segment.
