He pulls over and asks a sales person standing outside "how much for one of the dolls in the window?" The sales person replies "Which one are you referring to? We have: Work Out Barbie, Shopping Barbie, Beach Barbie, Disco Barbie, Ballerina Barbie, Astronaut Barbien, and Skater Barbie for $19.95. We also have Divorced Barbie for $265.95". The amazed father asks "What? Why is the Divorced Barbie $265.95 and the others only $19.95?" The annoyed 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, one of Ken's Friends, and a key chain made with Ken's balls.
