On This Date in TWISTED-HISTORY.com! in 2004, Mattel announced that the long running relationship of “Barbie” and “Ken” was ending. The couple had met on the set of their first TV commercial in 1961 and had dated over forty years with Barbie and Ken enjoying the life of beautiful celebrities. In 2004 when Barbie told Ken that since he liked it so much it was time to put a ring on it, he did the only thing he could. He jumped into the baby blue dream car that Barbie’s modeling career had paid for and raced for Tijuana. Heartbroken, Barbie drank a fifth of jack and called GI Joe for a post-breakup hook-up. To her dismay, Ken answered the phone and said that Joe wasn’t available. Barbie screamed why was HE there; Joe was a military he-man and Ken was just a feminine surfer with a spray-tan. Ken snapped back that you weren’t supposed to ask and they weren’t going to tell, but that the ‘kung-fu’ grip was obviously not for her pleasure and then hung up on her. Barbie subsequently moved in with Rosie O’Donnell for the next six years and referred to that time as the “No I Didn’t Years.”
