What is the history of blonde jokes?
Everybody may not like blonde jokes, some may even find them offensive, but that doesn’t change the fact that blonde jokes are one of the most popular jokes around. I’ve always wondered about the history of blonde jokes. When was the first blonde joke told or who was it that said the first blonde joke?
Today I thought I would ask the omnipotent Google about the history of blonde jokes. But do you know what? Google didn’t have an answer for me. At least not a concise one. Wikipedia’s article says a lot, but it doesn’t tell you who said the first blonde joke or when it took place.
What I did get from Wikipedia is that men perceived as blondes being more attractive and desirable. It’s not surprising then that Anita Loos popularized this idea in her 1925 novel Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. The article also states that folk perceive blondes as not being all that smart relying on their looks to get them by. Although I haven’t found any proof for the next statement, I reckon a woman started the whole blonde joke ball rolling.
It makes sense to me that a non-blonde woman who was sick and tired of blondes getting all the attention put her foot down and said to some bloke, but she is so dumb and then came up with some stupid thing that she supposedly has done. Ergo, the first blonde joke. Od course, this is just a theory, and I am open to any other ideas. Leave a comment below if you have one.
The Ventriloquist And The Blonde
A young ventriloquist doing a show in a local nightclub is thrilling the crowd with his routine of hilarious blonde jokes when suddenly a blonde in the from row jumps up and angrily shouts out;
“I’ve had enough of your stupid mundane blonde jokes. What gives you the right to stereotype blonde women that way? You bloody moron! What does the colour of a woman’s hair have to do with her intelligence? Its moronic, asinine men like you who make it so hard for a woman like myself from earning the respect we deserve not only in the workplace but in the community as well!
It’s because of mean spirited people like you that the conception of blondes being dumb is so widespread. Its people like you that make others think that all blondes are stupid! You and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against not only blondes, but women in general. It’s so pathetic, and you perpetuate this atrocity all in the name of humour!”
The embarrassed ventriloquist begins to apologize when the blonde interrupts screaming, “You stay out of this! I’m talking to that little shit on your lap.”
