I knew those Bratz were trouble

As if Barbie isn’t a bad enough role model, it seems that at least one Bratz doll came complete with actual marijuana as an after-market accessory.
The unlucky recipient’s mom quickly called 911 when she found the contraband packaged with the doll she received in the mail, having thought it was an identical doll she recently purchased via E-Bay.

Capt. John Sifford of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Dept., said that drugs are frequently sent through the mail and that this particular doll was “obviously meant for someone else.”

Well, whose name and address were on the package??
Did The Dealer accidentally send the “special” Bratz doll to one person, and another to somebody who expected a bit more under his tree? Something tells me there’s more to this, and that it’s funny.

    I don’t know about dolls, but this might have a bearing:

    All-time high for homegrown as pot becomes top cash crop in US
    Dan Glaister in Los Angeles; Tuesday December 19, 2006; The Guardian
    Marijuana is now the biggest cash crop grown in the US, exceeding traditional harvests such as wheat, corn and soy beans, says a new report. The study shows that 10,000 tonnes of marijuana worth $35.8bn (£18.4bn) is grown each year; the street value would be even higher. This dwarfs the $23bn-worth of corn grown, $17.6bn-worth of soybeans and $12.2bn-worth of hay. Marijuana is the biggest cash crop in 12 states, with the value of pot grown outstripping peanuts in Georgia and tobacco in North and South Carolina. In California, the biggest producer, it is worth $13.8bn.

    But who reads the Guardian, anyway?
