DIVORCE AMERICAN STYLE

 

One day a father goes to work, and on his way home he suddenly stops for a doll for his daughter. He walks into a shop and asks the sales person, “How much for one of those Barbies in the display window?

“The salesperson answers, “Which one do you mean sir? We have: Work Out Barbie for $19.95, Shopping Barbie for $19.95, Beach Barbie for $19.95, Disco Barbie for $19.95, Ballerina Barbie for $19.95, Astronaut Barbie for $19.95, Skater Barbie for $19.95, and Divorced Barbie for $265.95.”

The amazed father asks: “It’s what?! Why is the Divorced Barbie $265.95 and the others only $19.95?”

The salesperson rolls her eyes, sighs, and answers: “Sir..., “Divorced Barbie comes with Ken’s Car, Ken’s House, Ken’s Boat, Ken’s Furniture, Ken’s Computer and...one of Ken’s best friends.”
