Barbie Photo A Little Unnerving

It's been four years, but still... this "photo" of Barbie the business executive in a book titled What Will I Be? just gives me the creeps. Why? Look behind her.

Don't be so anal. I think the towers are a symbol of the power of businees and free market capitalism which is where our power comes from.

Are you trying to say Barbie had something to do with 9/11? I just can't believe that. She was at home involved in a threesome with Rainbow Brite & He-Man. THAT I can believe.

This is what disturbs you most about that book?

Did I write "most"? No, I didn't. What disturbs me even more is that on the "artist" apge Barbie has painted a picture of a still life and perfectly simulated the Adobe Photoshop "watercolor" filter. Also, her easel is at an angle, but the painted image is not -- other than the filter, is exactly the same as the bowl of fruit on the table she's looking at. Has she no sense of depth or parallax?

If this 'book' was published before the 9/11 then she'd be aspiring to be one working in the towers. And then implicitly implying that she could be one in the future be one of the ones who near perished in the 9/11 event. .. That is the disturbing factor ..
