In an astonishing display of bureaucratic excellence, the Punjab government has risen to the occasion by forming a 12-member committee to tackle the most pressing issue plaguing the province – the screening of the Hollywood blockbuster, Barbie.
As the fate of Barbie’s release in Punjab hangs in the balance, citizens are left wondering how this titanic task requires not just one, but a dozen expert minds to deliberate on its “objectionable content.”
Expert Committee Members to Sit Through the Movie
The illustrious committee members, handpicked for their discerning tastes and expertise in Barbieology, have the prestigious job of sifting through every second of the film, seeking out any potential threat to Punjab’s values. Sources say they have already employed state-of-the-art Barbie-detection algorithms to scrutinize every Barbie smile and giggle.
Sources reveal that the Punjabi public is relieved that their tax money is being put to good use in the most significant crisis of our time. One citizen quipped, “Finally, the government is focusing on the real problems! Move over economy, healthcare, and education. It’s time to confront Barbie!”
When we come to think of it, it’s not just Barbie, but Ken and the other dolls in the Barbie army. It’s a doll attack and we may need 12 of our finest men, in a conference room, watching each minute detail to nip the Barbie-revolution in the bud.
Government’s Eye on Entertainment
Indeed, the previous ban on Barbie in Punjab demonstrated the government’s keen eye for detecting inappropriate content in seemingly innocent narratives. In the age of the internet, where unlimited content is readily accessible, it’s imperative that our lawmakers prioritize monitoring a plastic toy doll.
However, critics have been quick to point out the absurdity of the situation. “Do we really need 12 committee members to assess the movie? Is Barbie secretly an international spy or a threat to national security?” inquired one social media user, hoping for answers that would never come.
How We Long to Be in There
Oh, to be a fly on the wall in that illustrious committee of grown-ups discussing the movie, Barbie! Picture this: twelve serious, mature adults, gathered around a conference table, furrowing their brows and pondering the complex sociopolitical implications of Margot Robbie’s adventure.
Oh, the sheer joy of witnessing these esteemed minds passionately debating the finer nuances of Barbie’s questionable fashion choices and her mysterious vendetta against society! We can already imagine the heated discussions on whether Barbie’s pink convertible poses a security risk or if her dream house is an imminent threat to national sovereignty.
Truly, it’s a riveting spectacle that only a privileged few get to witness – the deliberation of the century that will decide the destiny of a movie that has shaken the very foundations of Punjab. Oh, how we long to be in that room, savoring the deep intellectual insights, as they uncover the hidden meanings behind Barbie’s infectious smile.
The World Watches
As the full censor board meeting commenced, the world watched with bated breath to see if Barbie’s innocent charm would manage to sway the committee or if Punjab’s values would remain untarnished by the colorful world of plastic.
The 12-member committee is a clear display of competence and excellent allocation of resources by the Punjab government. While they face the monstrous task of deciding whether Barbie is fit for their society, the rest of us can rest easy, knowing that our policymakers are focusing on the real issues that matter.
After all, if Barbie can be banned, what’s next? Legos? Dumbo? Only time will tell as Punjab continues its valiant quest to protect the world from the treacherous threat of entertainment!
