- Barbie (Sports, Games and Toys)
"Well, what do you think?"
"I look like Manila Whore Barbie."
Our little Veronica as a hooker? Not even. However, she's right to point out that the sex industry is booming in Manila, Philippines, and several other southeast Asian countries. Most sex-trade employees are impoverished Chinese and Filipino women, but over time, there have probably been a few blonde prostitutes who look like Barbie, Mattel's voluptouous 12-inch doll. Veronica feels like a lady of the evening, but Meg actually has dressed her like Madonna, a pop music icon who began her career in the '80s but is still popular today in the early 21st century. Manila Whore Barbie vs. slutty Madonna outfit. That's splitting hairs.
