This is Basketball Girl, my beloved's awesome gift to me for Valentine's Day -- in honor of my little basketball problem, of course. According to her informative box, she is a metal windup toy inspired by "an old Japanese toy titled 'Pretty Girl with Ponytail Playing Bouncing the Ball'." When my beloved and I fired her up this past weekend, we discovered that this pretty girl has, shall we say, some interesting features. Not only does her right hand very skillfully bounce the basketball, but her left hand engages in a hilarious reciprocal movement that can only be described as "ass-slapping."
If you want to check her out for yourself, she'll be taking up residence in Lincoln Hall this week.
