Why do zebras have stripes?
If you can't read the #HuskieFace  meme:

Big tick and a Koala Stamp for whoever thought to send Helen Razer to see Barbie Live
 
"I am an arsehole who hates joy but at least I do not conspire to kill it as those slaughterers at Mattel do with their badly produced moments of faux-empowerment." 

We sent Helen Razer to review "Barbie Live! The Musical".
In the unlikely case anyone sought my view on children’s development as it is popularly understood, I would say that we worry far too much.
