I think it''s the ad copy that sells this item...

Most of you know that Jim (notarysojac) and I are over the top collectors, especialy of anything LotR and most things anime. For Yule, one of the things I bought him was a figure of Kamichu, which was at the top of our list at that moment. (It has, sadly, ended and we still miss having new episodes. And no, Jim does not watch this genera of anime to appease me - he is actually the more likely of the two of us to first fall for an anime that isn't really aimed at boys - he's also a huge Azumanga fan, and Strawberry Marshmallow, to name just the first couple I can think of. To compare and contrast, he bought me the replica guns from Sky Captain. Thankfully, we overlap in about 90% of our interests.)

Anyway, because of this, we ended up getting some catalogs we hadn't gotten for awhile, including Entertainment Earth.

We were deep in a discussion the other day when Jim cracked me up and showed our age at he same time by telling me someone looked like a shmoo, and to back it up, he went for the EE catalog and turned to the page with the collectable Shmoo.

He held up the page, and my first thought (included here to amuse leemoyer) was "Why are you showing me Nancy and Sluggo?"

But there was indeed a shmoo, and better than that (hard to believe, I know) was the ad on the facing page for Barbie and her Dog.

Barbie and Tanner are currently listed as Out of Stock - a condition that I can only imagine was caused by the best ad copy I have read in ages...



And I quote (emphasis my own, or Jim's actually, since he was reading it to me:


Barbie Doll and Tanner Scooper Dog Set Description:

Barbie's dog eats and makes a mess.

Tanner, Barbie's dog, eats and ejects waste from her body. At this point, Barbie can pick it up with her scooper, and then Tanner will eat it again-- just like your real dog!

Tanner the dog is soft and fuzzy and her mouth, ears, head and tail really move! You can open Tanner dog's mouth and "feed" her dog biscuits. Comes with a dog bone and chew toys that Tanner can hold in her mouth, too. When Tanner has to go to the bathroom, Barbie doll cleans up with her special magnetic scooper and trash can. Posable Barbie doll included. Includes 11 1/2-inch poseable Barbie, Tanner the dog, magnetic scooper, and accessories.






Yowza. Mmmm-mmmmm-good.
