Why do people like to make fun of blondes?

On one hand, blonde hair in women has been considered attractive and desirable. On the other hand, a blonde woman is often perceived as making little use of intelligence, as a “woman who relied on her looks rather than on intelligence.”

There is an abundance of dumb blonde jokes. Here is a sampling of such jokes:

Dumb Blonde Joke 1

A person went into the office kitchen one morning and found a new blonde girl painting the walls. She was wearing a new fur coat and a nice denim jacket.

Thinking this was a little strange, he asked her why she was wearing them rather than old clothes or an overall.

She showed him the instructions on the tin,

“For best results, put on two coats”.

Dumb Blonde Joke 2

A blonde was driving down the road listening to the radio and was quite upset when she heard blonde joke after blonde joke. A little way down the road, she saw another blonde out in a field rowing a boat. The blonde stopped her car and angrily jumped out yelling,

“You dumb blonde bimbo! It’s blondes like you that give the rest of us a bad name! If I could swim I’d come out there and give you what’s coming to you!”

So, is there any truth to the dumb blonde stereotype?

Well, if the blonde in the video below is typical of a blonde, then there may be some truth to the dumb blonde stereotype.

This well-dressed blonde shopper has become an internet sensation after she was caught on caught on camera battling the wrong way up an escalator.

Seemingly unaware of her mistake, the blonde casually marches up the steps as bemused passers-by glide past her in the opposite direction.

When her endless trudging seems to be getting her nowhere, she starts fighting to climb the moving stairs while onlookers fail to stifle their giggles.

Eventually, the high-heeled bimbo reaches out her arms and pulls herself up – still completely ignorant of the situation.

After a gruelling 42-second workout, the woman finally makes it to the top and totters off to hit the shops as though nothing has happened.

The hysterical incident was caught on mobile phone at the Saks department store in New York by a fellow shopper who can be heard laughing out loud at the sight.

The amateur footage, dubbed ‘Blonde on an escalator’, has been viewed almost 1.4 million times since it was uploaded to YouTube on November 11 by user ruderuderidee.
