'Math is hard - Let's go Shopping'

I was going to post on something stupid going on in this world, but then I ran into something more stupid:
'...Fashion Fever Shopping Boutique, the correctly named Barbie toy, features a built-in credit card swiper and a life-size credit card for young children to use when buying outfits for their dolls. According to the Amazon website, "Once the balance hits zero, it will reset so you can continue to shop."...'
H/T Feministing, which has tracked down a (poor quality) youtube of the advertisement with the great line:, 'And you never run out of Money!.'

No word yet on the mortgage-fever house-buying Ken doll.
