[Stiggers] Girls Gone Wild For Christmas

Jojo: "The older women in my family have a fascinating holiday tradition. Every Christmas they decorate their living room couch next to their coffee table with doll displays. Relatives, friends and visitors also admire the variety of these dolls' arrangements. My grandma's doll display is quite diverse, with dolls of many races, sizes and styles.

"My momma has a more ethnocentric display, perfect for Kwanzaa. She calls her doll arrangement the 'Post Brown vs. Board of Education,' inspired by Kenneth Clarke's 1940 doll experiment that showed how European features of light skin and straight hair are perceived as more attractive than African features."

"As a cutting edge entrepreneur for the people, I want to inspire another generation of adults with a special holiday sale of 'Jojo's Action Figure Doll' collection/series. Check out the action figure doll displays that I have for sale:

"'Roots and Culture Edition' display features human figures celebrating Kwanzaa in the so-called crime free suburbs (African drum music CD optional). Habari Ghani, suburbanites!

"'Girls Gone Wild for Christmas' display features a low budget video producer, camera person and boom microphone operator figures making an exploitation video at a 'Mr. Cholly Corporate Christmas' party. Oh well. Here comes Santa Claus!

"'The Exodus from Iraq' display features American Soldier action figures returning home to their families, friends and loved ones. Sniff. Sniff. Such a touching moment. Pass me my crying towel.

"Preserve those precious moments with 'Jojo's Action Figure Doll collection/series.' Happy holidays, last minute shoppers!"

That was cute. Every year I say I'm going to have a Kwanzaa party, and every year I run out of cash. One of these days I shall succeed!

Yeah, but it would be an awesome party. OH! I forgot one: we'd have to have a RamaSolstiChristmaKwanzaKuh party. It could last for a whole month... but we could only eat after sundown. But we could light a Menorah, and sing carols... :)
