God, jokes like this need to die. Well, actually, they're already dead, so that might be redundant.
'Great for conversation starters?' 'Improves conversation and social skills?' Yeah, for most people, these dated and sexist jokes would be conversation stoppers.
I love how the woman on the cover looks like Marilyn Monroe, who was an intelligent woman in real life. Her portrayal in films did not reflect who she really was. Her situation more or less symbolizes the reality of dumb blonde jokes, or rather the unreality of them.
I always want to ask people who tell inane jokes like this to explain how blonde hair could possibly be correlated with intelligence, whether it matters if someone is a natural blonde or an unnatural blonde, and whether it still applies to people who were blonde as kids and turned brunette as adults (or, needless to say, people who went gray in late adulthood). People who are actually devaluing the intelligence of others based on hair color should at least be able to prove that they have any brains themselves.
If you do this, you're accused of having no sense of humor. No, people who tell terrible jokes have no sense of humor.
'Did you hear the one about the guy who told a blonde joke! He was really dumb!' Ha ha.
