Barbie Dolls made just for Calgary

I stumbled upon this site today, and thought it was hilarious. I know it's not skyscraper related or anything, but this is the only forum I'm a member of that is local enough for this to make sense to a good number of users.

Enjoy: http://bugbearcub.livejournal.com/18698.html

Sadly, I know a few Edmonton Barbies who are like that. Though the truck displayed is missing the necessary welding unit.

No, the welding unit belongs in the back of the $80,000 jacked up dually diesel truck. That's Kens, and he drives around 118th avenue in it looking for 'entertainment"

The rusty S-10 with the Camaro rims is perfect for Edmonton barbie. I think I've actually seen that truck before.

And you don't want to know which Edmonton Barbies I've been around with. LEt's make a secret pact and never make mention of this ever again.

That's too funny! They never had a Pump hill, Falconridge or Hampton's Barbie. I'm guessing it would be pushing the stereotype thing a bit.

Edgemont too. I was thinking of adding a couple of these, but figured it could get a bit too offensive.

Hilarious though. I liked the Mackenzie Towne and Marlborough ones.

Surely there must be a streotype for an Inglewood Barbie?

How is there no Barbie driving a 23 ft. long Ford F-350 on a 3 ft. lift kit while on the rag?

Oh yeah, she'd be the greater Calgary Chestermere / Cochrane / Okotoks Barbie.
