After Donald Trump, the world is wondering if it is the blond men, not blonde women, who are actually a bit dumber. A friend sent me this collection of supposedly true stories of blond men.
1- A blond man is in the bathroom and his wife shouts: “Did you find the shampoo?”
He answers, “Yes, but I’m not sure what to do… it’s for dry hair, and I’ve already wet mine.”
2- A blond man sees a letter lying on his doormat. It says on the envelope “DO NOT BEND.”
He spends the next two hours trying to figure out how to pick it up.
3- A blond man shouts frantically into the phone, “My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart.”
“Is this her first child?” asks the doctor.
“No,” he shouts. “This is her husband.”
4- A blond man is in jail, the guard looks in his cell and sees him hanging by his feet.
“Just what are you doing?” he asks.
“Hanging myself,” the blond replies.
“The rope should be around your neck,” says the guard.
“I tried that,” he replies. “But then I couldn’t breathe.”
5- A tourist asks a blond man: “Why do scuba divers always fall backwards off their boats?”
The blond man replies: “Duh, if they fell forward, they’d still be in the boat.”
6- A friend told the blond man: “Christmas is on a Friday this year.”
The blond man then said, “Let’s hope it’s not the 13th.”
7- Two blond men find three grenades, and they decide to take them to a police station.
One asked: “What if one explodes before we get there?”
The other says: “We’ll lie and say we only found two.”
8- A woman phoned her blond male neighbour and said: “Close your curtains the next time you and your wife are intimate. The whole street was watching and laughing at you yesterday.”
To which the blond man replied, “Well the joke’s on all of you because I wasn’t even at home yesterday.”
9- A blond man phoned the hospital as his wife was in labour with their first child, and he wondered if he should bring her into the hospital yet.
“Bring her in when the contractions are five minutes apart,” the nurse advised.
He responded, “Okay I will, but right now they are just two minutes apart.”
10- A blond man goes to the vet with his goldfish. “I think it’s got epilepsy,” he tells the vet.
The vet takes a look and says, “It seems calm enough to me.”
The blond man says, “Wait, I haven ‘t taken it out of the bowl yet.”
11- A blond man was driving home, drunk as a skunk. Suddenly he has to swerve to avoid a tree, then another, then another. A cop car pulls him over, so he tells the cop about all the trees in the road.
The cop says, “That ‘s your air freshener swinging about.”
12- A blond man ‘s dog goes missing and he is frantic. His wife says “Why don’t you put an ad in the paper?”
He does, but two weeks later the dog is still missing.
“What did you put in the paper?” his wife asks.
“Here boy!” he replies.
I’m at “firstname.lastname@example.org” if you can add to my collection but be warned, in younger days my hair was dirty blond, and I like to think now it is very, very light blond… but I may soon be changing that assessment.
