What you do is take every doll - every single one - and set them up in a large, furnished room with various everyday items and objects. Set them up like the dolls have just been doing their own thing; working on a computer, sitting around a table talking with their friends, playing a game of Scrabble, reading the New Yorker, whatever. Like you just stepped into some alternate world where 5000 Cabbage Patch dolls happened to be in a room, living their lives.

You take one of those super high-res pictures of this scene, and you post it on the internet. Author Unknown; give no clue to your identify, use a throw-away Flickr account that cannot be tied to anyone. It of course immediately goes viral. Some think it's cute, others think it's silly, but because you've taken such care to stage the photo with details, and taken it in a high resolution, people start really analyzing the picture. Oh look, that one's playing Angry Birds on an iPad. Look at those two discussing The Sound and The Fury. Eventually people will start seeing things that aren't really there. Does that one in the corner have a joint? Is that one getting a hand job from the other one? In the vacuum of any hard information about the photo or it's purpose, people begin to invent their own ideas.

Further and further down the rabbit hole people will go. What do the three dolls in a semi-circle facing the portrait of Dorian Grey represent? Why is the doll who looks like Henry Kissinger holding the book 11/23/63, is this a clue about the JKF assassination? What's the significance of the doll riding the white rocking horse, is that supposed to be Amy Winehouse? People will begin to obsess over this picture, ascribing deeper and darker meanings to it. Photoshopped versions will show up; some obvious fakes, but some skillfully done, adding new levels to the legend/conspiracy theories. Speculation as to the source of the photo will run wild. The CIA made it as a mental experiment on the human mind as a gestalt organism. The Freemasons encoded their entire history into this photo as a secret record for generations to come. The History Channel runs a mini-series, covering the supposed creation and secret history of "The Photo" (sometimes also known as "The Kids"). College courses are dedicated to it's study. Facts pass into urban myth and legend as the years go on, until eventually a religion worshiping The Photo arises, believers ascribing to the theory that it was created by God as a sort of modern Bible. Inevitably, other religious sects with different interpretations of The Photo appear, until eventually all surviving Cabbage Patch dolls are seen as prophets of The Photo, possession of which are warred over by nations.

If that $1 million were spent on actual cabbage, how many starving children would they feed?

Answer: Trick question. They would feed zero children. No child likes the taste of cabbage.

When I was doing massage therapy, I had a couple of clients who tried to pay me in Beanie Babies.

NutWrench: Pat and Joe have even connected with other Cabbage Patch parents for play dates, which pretty much involves a group of grownups standing behind their prized possessions and talking on their behalf.

I would find this incredibly weird and creepy.



Yesterday, on the way to school, our daughter announced that she had a secret about her doll to share with us: HER DOLL COULDN'T REALLY TALK, and she (our daughter) had been talking for her (the doll) this entire time!

Of course, we pretended to be completed shocked by this announcement.

\our kid is 4 years old
\\the adults in this article could learn something from her
