I’m A Barbie Girl – Driving Plastic, It’s Fantastic, Thanks to a DWI

College student Tara Monroe made a poor choice after attending a Waka Flocka concert by refusing a breathalyzer test. Subsequently, Monroe lost her driver’s license and her father took her car away. However, her father felt some degree of pity for his offspring’s poor choices in life and music, so he purchased his daughter a new bicycle.

A bike certainly beat public transportation and her “chevrolegs,” but Monore felt the need to be on four wheels instead of two. Feeling left out, this Barbie girl scoured the interwebs for a source of transportation befitting her situation. Since her alleged substance usage left her without a license, Monroe needed something that did not require a learner’s permit, driver’s license, or even a parking permit. After a little bit of searching and using some brain cells that were not subjected to a chemistry experiment, Monroe located her new ride on Craigslist.

Maybe she’ll meet a guy in college with a Power Wheels Hummer? Probably not.

After looking around, Miss Monroe found a used bright pink Barbie Jeep manufactured by PowerWheels and was able to negotiate the deal down to sixty bucks. In honor of the toddler who previously owned the Jeep, Monroe elected to name the Jeep Charlene. Too bad the previous owner wasn’t named Christine because the follow up story would be hilarious once the possession begins to take hold.

Perhaps there’s some dashing stud in a Power Wheels Mustang just waiting to take her to the playground, you think? If he’s a true gearhead, maybe he can unleash the power of her Jeep with an upgrade? No matter what she does, she will never be as cool as this kid, though.

Sure, Monroe may hate walking, but driving around in a pink Barbie Jeep just points out the stupidity of alleged questionable taste in music and attempting to drive while under the influence of a substance or substances. Obviously, speed is not an issue for Monroe because the blue-haired morning mall walkers move faster than this second hand plastic Barbie Jeep. Hope she enjoys her fifteen minutes of fame because life behind the wheel of a plastic Jeep is far from fantastic.
