Stereotype of the Month Entry

Another Stereotype of the Month entry:

My mother sent this to me, asking if I wanted the doll. I thought she was beautiful but when I read her description I was a little insulted.

Rob's comment
Needless to say, this Barbie looks nothing like the real Pocahontas. This doll is a cross between a Vegas showgirl and a harem girl (or Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie).

P.S. OOAK = one of a kind.
