Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro

My wife being a long-time veteran of Burning Man, I have  soft spot for the festival of the Alternative that is currently taking place in the Nevada desert. Reading the San Francisco Chronicle today, that spot just got a bit larger:

"At Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro, Jim Jacoby of New Castle showed off his art installation of nearly 1,000 Barbie dolls in various states of expiration. There were Barbies crucified on hot pink crosses, Barbies hanging from the gallows, Barbies crushed under the wheels of Barbie vans and hundreds of the emaciated plastic dolls marching into a Betty Crocker Easy Bake oven at G.I. Joe gunpoint.

"Would you like some wine? I have a 2001 Zinfandel that won the silver medal at the California State Fair," Jacoby said, pouring wine into Barbie Dixie cups for visitors."

"Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro"!!

Maybe I’ll give in next year and let my wife drag me out to the desert for a few days of dust, sun, nudity and Award Winning Zinfandel.
