Barbie's hooked on smack again!
This news item hit the papers from the UP:
More needles wash up on Japan’s beaches

"…. a large number of syringes bearing English and Chinese markings have been washing up in Yamaguchi as well as Saga and Fukuoka prefectures since earlier this month… Each of the syringes measures between 2 and 3 centimeters long."
But there must have been a typo for a centimeter is about 4/10 of an inch. So these must have been really tiny syringes fit only for Ken & Barbie. It's awfully stressful being Barbie...that's how she remains so skinny.
Here's a picture of Barbie before she got hooked.
