<><><><><> Now for some Blonde Jokes. <><><><><>

Blonde LOGIC

Two blondes living in Townsville were sitting on a bench

talking......And one blonde says to the other, "Which do

you think is farther away..........Melbourne or the moon?"

The other blonde turns and says

"Helloooooooooo, can you see Melbourne...?????"



A blonde pushes her BMW into a gas station. She tells the mechanic it died.

After he works on it for a few minutes, it is idling smoothly. She says, "What's the story?"

He replies, "Just crap in the carburettor"

She asks, "How often do I have to do that?"



A police officer stops a blonde for speeding and asks

her very nicely if he could see her license.

She replied in a huff, "I wish you guys would get your

act together.

Just yesterday you take away my license and then

today you expect me to show it to you!"



There's this blonde out for a walk. She comes to a river

and sees another blonde on the opposite bank.

"Yoo-hoo!" she shouts, "How can I get to the other side?"

The second blonde looks up the river then down the river

and shouts back, "You ARE on the other side."



A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor's office

and said that her body hurt wherever she touched it.

"Impossible!" says the doctor. "Show me."

The redhead took her finger, pushed on her left breast

and screamed, then she pushed her elbow and screamed

in even more. She pushed her knee and screamed; likewise

she pushed her ankle and screamed. Everywhere she

touched made her scream.

The doctor said, "You're not really a redhead, are you?

"Well, no" she said, "I'm actually a blonde."

"I thought so," the doctor said. "Your finger is broken."

I really liked the ABC's. This one struck something: X for X-ray – Give yourself a mental X-ray now and again. It is good to do that on a regular basis.

Loved the blonde joke!!

Have a great day!!

The following will show that guys are blonds as well. ec

A couple of blond men in a pickup truck drove into a
lumberyard. One of the blond men walked in the office and
said, "We need some four-by-twos."

The clerk said, "You mean two-by-fours, don't you?" The man
said, "I'll go check," and went back to the truck.

He returned a minute later and said, "Yeah, I meant
two-by-fours." "Alright. How long do you need them?" The
customer paused for a minute and said, "Uh... I'd better go

After awhile, the blond returned to the office and said, "A
long time. We're gonna build a house."
