Insert Your Blonde Joke Here


This picture has been going the rounds - the Texas Longhorns score in the Rose Bowl and a USC cheerleader does what she has been trained to do - she cheers - only its for the wrong team. See how the other cheerleaders react to her?

Now I'm sorry for the cheap blonde joke. The reality is I have always been attracted to the petite brunette types all of my life but the girls I have really seriously dated (and currently live with) have all been blondes. So go figure.

What does that mean?

I dunno. How about, "You ARE what you DATE"? I think the whole dumb blonde thing comes from the assumption that more blondes are credited (unfairly, yes) for being the most beautiful. There has to be a negative to balance it out, so "Blond and Stupid" became an accepted way to think about females. Same goes for women with bigger boobs. I still don't know why that generalization never quite "took" when making assumptions about blonde men. And yes, I was watching the Golden Globes last night. Loved Steve Carrell's acceptance speech.

*Snort* That picture is GREAT. I'm totally printing it out to post at my desk. Can you imagine how mortified she must have been when she realized? Do you think they'll boot her off the team? Maybe she has a crush on one of the opposing players and lost her mind momentarily?

Ugh. Screw the blonde scenario. I'm trying to defend my SEX.

Wordgirl (love that name) - you were so angry it had to be posted twice.

Just so you know I'm listening to my IPOD now to "Old Fashioned Love Song" by Three Dog Night - but I won't write about them.

And they never campaigned for anybody Shrinking Violet.

I love the nerve that is touched by blondes stuff - of course its meaningless, but you all get off to it.

Oh yeah? Being a blonde, I love a good blonde joke. But ya know, maybe that cheerleader was originally FROM Texas. Get off her ass. She's peppy, dammit.
