Invite the Elements of the Directions:

East:
  Pink Feather Boa of the East,  Great one of the Blonde Space Cadet,
          Be with us now, and let no thought set.

South:  
  Pink Hair Dryer of the South, Great one of the Wet Blonde Hair,
          Be with us now, and dry with your hot air.

West:  
  Pink Nail Polish of the West, Great one of the polished Blonde Nail,
          Be with us now, and let no nail be pale,

North:  
  Pink Pearly Sand of the North, Great one of the Blonde Butt Seat, 
          Be with us now, and be soft on the feet.

Invite the Goddess Barbie:
HPS:
       “As it was in the Mattel factory so let it be now, 
           Barbie, Barbie, Barbie,  I call on you,  your children call on you. 
           Come be with us now.  Tell us what we need to know.

The Charge of the Goddess  Barbie:
Skipper:
     “Listen to the words of the Great Goddess Barbie,
        she who of old has been called Baby Doll,   Look Alike Doll,
          Crying Doll, and by many other names:

HPS:
     “Hear my words and know me, Whenever ye have need of playing,
         once in the day, and better it be when you are full of merriment and fun,
          then shall ye assemble in some toy store to adore Me and Ken,
          and all things Blonde and Plastic.

       Ye shall be free from dullness, and as a sign that ye be free,
          ye shall sprinkle pink faerie dust, paint your nails pink,
          decorate your face with paintings and play ‘Barbie and Ken‘, 
          all in My praise.

       I command that ye dye your hair Blonde.   Dyeing your hair blonde
          will bring ye more fun.  For we all know that Blondes have more fun.  
          And both Me and Ken are Blonde. 

       My law is to play in Malibu, Hawaii, on the streets, in the playgrounds,
          and also in secret places for the ‘adult games‘.  The ‘adult games’ will
          always be played in the honor of Me and Ken. 
          For these ’adult games’ are My rituals. 

      Let no one deter ye from things ‘plastic‘. 
            For what else will last forever without degrading.
           (For we know that ’adult toys’ are made from ‘plastic‘.)  

      I call to ye to hasten to the mall and buy only My ‘plastic’ things,
           and if they are pink, then so much the better. 
           And if ye are tempted by cheap imitations then ye shall be
           deprived of the full pleasures of ‘plastic‘.  

      And ye who want to look just like Me and have the perfect figure,
            then get ye to a plastic surgeon, for behold I am the
            ultimate in Blonde Plastic.

Invite the God  Ken::
HP:
         "Hail Ken, consort of Barbie, God of the toy store and little girls. 
             He who is always at the side of Barbie, dressed in shorts,
             bathing suit, or tux, depending where She wants to go. 
             Never in combat gear. 
             Come, be with us, and give Barbie some company".

Pink Cupcakes and Pink Lemonade:

Blessing of the Pink Cupcakes:
HP: Pink frosting is keen
HPS: And Pink frosting is neat

Blessing of the Pink Lemonade:
HP: Be it known that plain lemonade is not better than pink lemonade
HPS: Nor is pink lemon aid better than plain lemon aid
HP: For both are better than the falsely named "imitation lemonade"
HPS: And neither is limeade.

Great Rite:
HPS: (Holds the ’Chalice’ Pink Plastic Cup.)  As the Chalice is to Barbie.
HP:    (Holds the ‘Athame’ Pink Plastic Knife) So is the Athame to Ken.
HPS&HP: May they show us that the way to unite is neat,
HPS&HP: Great are Barbie and Ken! Let us eat!
