Just for laughs

Note: If you are offended by blonde jokes, you should probably stop reading right now to save yourself a bit of annoyance...

Two guys from City Hall were sent out to measure a flag pole. They got to the flag pole and stood there looking up at it. They traded off ideas on how to measure it, but, really, none of the ideas seemed to be workable.

A blonde walked up to them.

"Whatcha doing, fellas?" the blonde asked.

"Oh, we have to find out the height of this flag pole," one of the guys said.

"OK," the blonde said. She reached in her purse and took out a wrench. She loosened a couple of bolts at the base of the flag pole and then tipped it over until it was laying on the ground. She reached in her purse and took out a tape measure. She measured the flag pole from end to end.

"Eighteen feet," the blonde said, and then she walked away.

"Isn't that just like a blonde?" one of the guys said. "We ask her for the height and she gives us the length!"

Don't know if you need that disclaimer! This is kind of the anti-blonde joke blonde joke.

A good one too!

Mark, I'm glad you enjoyed it. :-)

Have I ever mentioned that I'm a natural blonde? (We will have our revenge! Heh!) ;-)

Actually, for the record, I don't mind most blonde jokes, even though I'm blonde. I think they help keep people from "acting blonde" quite as much as they might otherwise. There's something to be said for pointing out what's 'not smart' in a humorous way.

Besides which, if I didn't ever laugh at myself, half the chuckles would be gone from my typical day. :-)

Hi! Love the blonde joke. Hope you have more humor. We can all use more laughter, and I am a firm believer in the concept that laughter is the universal medicine in a world frought with sadness, stress and solitude. Thanks for doing your part to put the HA back in HAPPY. Hope we can keep it there!!
