What are your thoughts about Blonde jokes? Do you think they are a riot, or are they just rude and mean?

Many say that they are no longer funny....and to prove it; they say we should have "Bitchy Brunette" jokes, "Angry Redhead" jokes, etc. They claim that labeling all blondes as dumb was started by jealous brunettes who are tired of the men drooling over blondes.

On the Internet there are jokes about brunettes, but when the brunettes read them they get very angry. It's not so funny when they are tagged.

Your thoughts?

I've read brunette jokes and if they were funny - I'd laugh. If they weren't - I just moved on to the next joke. It would take alot to offend me in such a manner. After all, they are just jokes, right?

Some can be funny, some can be not-so-funny. Theres a limit to any joke that relates to any one particular type of person. Some dont take to them too well, either.
I hear a lot of jokes about orientals but just brush 'em off. Ive gotten to where not much in the way of joking gets to me anymore, unless it relates to animal or child abuse.

Some jokes are in really poor taste... others border the line of funny

Jokes that are directed towards particular races, or hair colorings, or job occupations.. or what not, well, the ones that are getting all hissy about them, are probably sensitive and insecure about something else.

For example :
A joke about someone's weight doesn't offend them... their weight does. and you're just rubbing it in. make sense?

Yes blonde jokes are cruel but I have learned something from hearing them.

I found out how to put a sparkle in a blond girls eyes.













You shine a flashlight in her ear !

I'm blonde, and I've never been offended by blonde jokes. Then again, I'm confident in my intelligence.

In fact, I use my "blondeness" as an excuse when I do something wrong. Hey - I said I'm smart, not perfect!

It just all goes to show that actually Blondes are very good sports, and handle them well.

I am sure that some Blondes may be upset or offended...But, I can not recall hearing one complaining.

And, the truth is, almost all Blondes that I meet have really nice personalities, and are successful in life....So, the truth is, the jokes are simply jokes...

By the way, I am (or was) a brown haired guy...

The blondes that I know think the jokes are funny. If I receive a blonde joke in email, I forward it on. They don't take offense to it. I don't know any "dumb" blonds in person. The ones on tv and music seem to be stupid.
I haven't heard any brunette or redhead jokes but I have heard tons of redhead comments.
Some are not pg-13 so I won't mention them.
I'll leave it at that.

I think blond jokes are funny - I don't think we're offending blonds.

I also like Redneck jokes.

I'm a red head - I've never seen a red head joke, but I would laugh.

We need to lighten up and take everything in stride.

These innocent jokes are a nice diversion from all the tragedy and horror stories we read in the news.

It's great to start your day with a grin
