ooookay, Mama Kat. I'm impressed by your rather contemporary use of "hot mess" (referring here to Tommie and not, say, a spilled pot of oatmeal), buuuut, while "old-fashioned school marm" and "flaming hot mess" unquestionably insult Margo and Tommie's taste, "blonde Barbie doll" more says dumb but hot. Not really an insult of the same caliber! If "Barbie doll" were to say anything about fashion, I guess it would be "slutty bimbo chic," but come on, no one in this strip is slutty bimbo chic, even if they should be. (I'm looking at you, Gina.) Frank Bolle just doesn't have it in him.
And, do I have to say it? Glass houses, Kat and Kitty!
