I love blonde jokes. I really do.
Mind you, I am blonde, so I have the privilege of telling all the blonde jokes I want. It’s too bad blonde jokes have so little to do with actually being blonde!
See, the ordinary blonde joke is a way we openly express intolerance in our culture. While the media tends to play up differences in race and gender and point at them as being our major barriers to tolerance, the truth is that intolerance is more widespread and insidious than that.
