Posted on 11/22/2001 11:16:43 PM PST by StoneColdGOP
A German scientist claims the old adage about blondes having more fun is no longer true. Professor Hans Juergens says his research proves brunettes now have more fun. He believes men want to marry blondes like Claudia Schiffer but have affairs with brunettes like Catherine Zeta Jones. Professor Juergens says men associate blondes with marriage and washing powder but brunettes with sex.
To test his theory the professor from Kiel put two ads in a newspaper pretending to be a 26-year-old woman looking for marriage. In one he made her blonde, in the other a brunette. "The men wanted to bed the dark-haired women, but were thinking of sharing their lives or building a house with the blonde," he said.
Professor Juergens says advertisers have already cottoned on to changing attitudes about hair color. "Almost everything that is associated with washing and cleaning materials is advertised with a blonde," he said. Dark-haired women, said the professor, are usually used to sell chocolate, alcoholic drinks and sexy underwear.
No scary dreams that night, I can assure you.
I think most men would go for this program without any struggle. Although they could probably deal with the reverse okay, too.
But I guess a guy who is up at four in the morning posting on FR probably will never have to make that decison.
Bad, bad me.
After presenting the scientific evidence, I don't know if I can confirm Professor Juergens' theory or not, but I can confirm that for whatever reason, I tend to lean toward brunettes. Not a hard and fast rule, mind you.
Just seems to be my preference, most of the time.
Happy, though, to further the cause of science on this thread that you so bravely posted.
