Musical instrument identification Fail...
One of my F-list (I won't say who because it's an F-locked post) has just referred to a 'Debbie Harry Barbie' and linked to the relevant web page. I was vaguely interested and took a look, and while there I had a look at some of the 'You might also like' links on the page. One was the 'Hard Rock Café Barbie'. The blurb with it says ' A rockin' bass guitar to jam with the band accompanies this rock star!'

Follow the link, take a look at the picture, and see if you can spot the mistake that nearly had me falling off my chair laughing.


Current Music: Darling Violetta, "Angel Theme"

*snort* I'm sure she plays a mean cello!! (No way is that a bass of any kind.)

Umm. Isn't that a cello? *boggles*

That instrument isn't big enough to be a bass, therefore it must be a cello, but when did a cello become a rock, country or rockabilly instrument?

Apparently for quite awhile now! I looked up cello as a rock instrument a couple of months ago just for fun and found a whole listing of bands. Haven't really listened to any of them, though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cello_rock

cello =/= bass!

Ha! I thought you were going to point to some obvious to you, obscure to me feature. I didn't expect...cello! Good grief.

Why does she have a cello?

One day I'll dig out a Barbie joke set in my valley and send it to you --- no pictures, but it may give you some idea of what some of my neighbors are like (or, at least, perceived to be --- usually correctly).

Such a shame, the doll is actually quite nice, if an Amy Winehouse rip off.

One up on Dave Swarbrick, I suppose - I see your electric violin and raise it with a cello.

I suppose, size-wise, it's half a double bass?

It's a rockin' double bass! :-)

Except it's not even that, it's a cello...Check facts? What does that mean? :-)

Wow. I'd like to see her riff out "Stairway to Heaven" on that.
Also when did Barbie start dressing like a lady of negotiable affection?
