After recently writing a naughty piece about the wholesome Barbies, fans of their multi-ethnic rivals, Bratz dolls, have written to denounce Mattel's evil ways. Basically, the Bratz dolls, which look nothing like the blonde, blue-eyed Barbie dolls, are being buried and their maker, MGA Entertainment, is in danger of going under after losing a landmark copyright lawsuit in the United States.

But as delicious revenge, someone has put online images of unborn Barbies that never made it to the shops. Given Mattel's legal prowess, we are surprised the website is still up and running.

The Barbies pictured are a bit too rude to be shown in a family newspaper. Suffice it to mention their names: Gangsta Barbie, Exotic Dancer Barbie, Transgender Barbie, Sorority Barbie, Goth Barbie, Lactating Barbie and a very pregnant Council Estate Barbie, which comes with two little black dolls as her children. Hurry to check out the site: www.flumps.org/funny/barbie/. It may not be there for too much longer.
