We've seen Barbie used as a medium of social critique before, of course. But never has she been this violently, alarmingly psychopathic. Note: if seeing Ken killed, mutilated and dismembered in creative ways disturbs you, you've been warned.

Says artist Mariel Clayton of her "Bad Barbie" series, "You can't get to be Barbie without an ocean's worth of peroxide, 27 plastic surgeries and a complete lack of intelligence, so it irritates me immensely that this is the toy of choice women give to their daughters to emulate. Behind the vacuous perpetual lipsticked-smile lurks the black heart of the true sociopath, just like in real life."
