I N C I D E N T A L L Y: More Blondes
We keep saying that we have reached the end of the road on blonde jokes but here is another. It is a question of speaking up for oneself.
A young ventriloquist is touring the clubs and one night he's appearing at a small club in Essex. With his dummy on his knee, he's going through his usual dumb blonde jokes when a blonde woman in the fourth row stands on her chair and starts shouting: ”I've heard enough of your stupid blonde jokes. What makes you think you can stereotype women that way?" What does the colour of a person's hair have to do with her worth as a human being?” It's guys like you who keep women like me from being respected at work and in the community and from reaching our full potential as a person....because you and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against, not only blondes, but women in general...and all in the name of humour!"
The ventriloquist is embarrassed and begins to apologise, when the blonde yells: ”And you stay out of this, mister! I'm talking to that little blighter on your knee”.
