In Honor...

Whether you knew it or not, today is National Blonde Day. I haven't quite figured out if it is celebrating the beauty of blondes or the stupidity and clueless nature of the stereotype. I would hope it is the first, seeing that the second would make their beach blonde stereotype even more prominent.

!WARNING! To those many blondes that are related, or that are friends, I do not intend to provide any ill feelings between us. These remarks are made out of jest and good humor. :)

You have to laugh at some of the instances that many of these blondes, merely acting normal, do on a every day basis. I know that hair color has scientifically nothing to do with intellect or reasoning; however, it does seem like many blondes do in fact live up to their stereotype. We must pause and think, however, on the blondes that aren't naturally colored that way but are dyed into the "lifestyle". Many of these fake blondes actually fit into their hair color as if the dye itself has sucked their IQ ten or twenty points. So is it an excuse to be called "the blonde" during moments of stupidity? What about us brunettes? I admit that being a brunette, I have had my "blonde" moments. However, I choose to think that they are fewer and farther between then the true blondes. :)
Just another thought, we seclude blondes into their own category; but who ever hears anyone say "Black Moment"? I sure haven't. What about red, black, grey, white, brunettes, oh and don't forget the different colors of the rainbow that appear more frequently on teenage heads. If anything, I would say I have more klutzy type moments than anything. Maybe that is what brunettes should be known for...klutzes.

In honor of National Blonde Day, I have posted some blonde jokes.

Game Of Intelligence
There was a blonde who found herself sitting next to a Lawyer on an airplane. The lawyer just kept bugging the blonde wanting her to play a game of intelligence. Finally, the lawyer offered her 10 to 1 odds, and said every time the blonde could not answer one of his questions, she owed him $5, but every time he could not answer hers, he'd give her $50.00. The lawyer figured he could not lose, and the blonde reluctantly accepted. The lawyer first asked, "What is the distance between the Earth and the nearest star?" Without saying a word the blonde handed him $5. then the blonde asked, "What goes up a hill with 3 legs and comes back down the hill with 4 legs?" Well, the lawyer looked puzzled. He took several hours, looking up everything he could on his laptop and even placing numerous air-to-ground phone calls trying to find the answer. Finally, angry and frustrated, he gave up and paid the blonde $50.00 The blonde put the $50 into her purse without comment, but the lawyer insisted, "What is the answer to your question?" Without saying a word, the blonde handed him $5.

Blonde and Sheepherd
Once upon a time there was a blonde with long hair, blue eyes, she was sick of all the blonde jokes. One day, she decided to get a make over, so she cut and dyed her hair. She also went out and bought a new convertible. She went driving down a country road and came across a herd of sheep. She stopped and called the sheepherder over. "That's a nice flock of sheep.", she said. "Well thank you.", said the herder. "Tell you what. I have a proposition for you.", said the woman. "Okay.", replied the herder. "If I can guess the exact number of sheep in your flock, can I take one home?", asked the woman. "Sure.", said the sheepherder. So, the girl sat up and looked at the herd for a second and then replied, "382". "Wow.", said the herder. "That is exactly right. Go ahead and pick out the sheep you want to take home." So the woman went and picked one out and put it in her car. Upon watching this, the herder approached the woman and offered, "Okay, now I have a proposition for you". "What is it?", queried the woman. "If I can guess the real color of your hair... can I have my dog back?"

Blonde going Crazy
.Q: What would you do if a Blond threw a hand grenade right at you? A: You'd pull the pin and throw it back.

Horrific Accident
A blonde had just totaled her car in a horrific accident. Miraculously, she managed to pry herself from the wreckage without a scratch and was applying fresh lipstick when the state trooper arrived. The trooper gasped. "Your car looks like an accordion that was stomped on by an elephant. Are you OK ma'am?" "Yes, officer, I'm just fine" the blonde chirped. "Well, how in the world did this happen?" the officer asked as he surveyed the wrecked car. "Officer, it was the strangest thing!" the blonde began. I was driving along this road when from out of nowhere this TREE pops up in front of me. So I swerved to the right, and there was another tree! I swerved to the left and there was ANOTHER tree! I served to the right and there was another tree! I swerved to the left and there was ...." "Uh, ma'am", the officer said, cutting her off, "There isn't a tree on this road for 30 miles. That was your air freshener swinging back and forth."
So if you see a blonde today, remind her that she has given us yet another holiday.
