Study: Brunettes Do Have More Fun
M-Europe | November 23rd, 2001

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.

I would propose a jello wrestling battle royal between the blondes and brunettes of the world to settle this question.

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.

I'm having a dilemma about this myself...I guess I'd love to marry Laurie Dhue from Fox News and have an affair with Patti Ann Browne! ;-)

But I guess a guy who is up at four in the morning posting on FR probably will never have to make that decison.

Well, Stone, here's how I see it...

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.

I'm not offended by dumb blonde jokes because I know that I'm not dumb. I also know I'm not blonde.

A blonde and a brunette were watching the 11:00 news. The current news story was about a man up on a ledge and threatening to jump. The station cuts to a commercial.

Brunette: I bet you $20 he's going to jump.

Blonde: OK.

(back to newscast)

He jumps.

Blonde: OK Here's my $20.

Brunette: No, that was too easy. I can't take it.

Blonde: I insist. I lost.

Brunette: I have a confession to make. I saw the same thing on the 6:00 news and knew he jumped. So it wasn't really a good bet.

Blonde: I know. I saw the same newscast. But I didn't think he would be stupid enough to jump twice.

A blonde called the fire department. She screams into the phone.

"Hurry, Come Quick! My house is on fire."

The fire chief replied, "OK, but how do we get to your house?"

The blond said, "Duh, Red Truck!"

A blonde was tired of everyone thinking that blondes were stupid, and she didn't like all these jokes. To end the injustice, she decided to prove to the world that she was smart.

In order to prove herself, she chose to memorize the capital of every American state. It wasn't an easy task, but she was determined and eventually managed to do it.

A few days later she was in a bar, and heard a couple of men laughing at a blonde joke. This was the perfect opportunity to start righting all the wrongs that had been done to blondes in the past - she would set these men straight!

Marching over at a rapid pace she announced, "It isn't true that all blondes are stupid, and I will prove it. Just ask me the capital of any American state, and I will tell you what it is."

Although a little surprised, the men did challenge her and asked, "Ok, how about Arizona?"

The Blonde, after pausing for a moments thought, proudly gave the answer, "A"!

Thanks a lot, Sabertooth. Now I'll never get back to sleep.

BTW, the results of the study were for Germany (more blondes there); I wonder if the same results would be obtained in, say, Spain (more brunettes there).

A blonde walked into up to an airport ticket counter and asked to buy a round trip ticket.

"Where to?" Asked the smiling ticket agent.

The blonde rolled her eyes and said, "Duuuuuh, back here!"

Two blondes were driving through Louisiana when they came to a sign that told them they were almost to Natchitoches. They argued all the way there about how to pronounce the name of the town. Finally they stopped for lunch. After getting their food, one of the blondes said to the cashier, "Can you settle an argument for us? Very slowly, tell us where we are." The cashier leaned over the counter and said "Buuurrrrrr-Gerrrrrr Kiiiinnnnnggg".

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's idling smoothly. She says, "What's the story?" He replies, "Just crap in the carburetor." She says, "How often do I have to do that?"

A Blonde is walking down the street and stops a man to ask for the time. The man, looking at his watch, helpfully responds, "Why, certainly! The time is now four o'clock."

The blonde scratches her head and says, "You know, it's really weird. I've been asking people that question all day long, and I keep getting different answers."

Blonde and her brunette friend are walking down the street and pass a flower shop, where the brunette happens to see her boyfriend buying flowers. She sighs and says, "Oh, crap, my boyfriend is buying me flowers again...for no reason." The blonde looks quizzically at her and says, "What's the big deal, don't you like getting flowers?" The brunette says, "Oh, sure...but he always has expectations after getting me flowers, and I just don't feel like spending the next three days on my back with my legs in the air." The blonde says, "Don't you have a vase?"

A blond stormed up to the front desk of the library and said, "I have a complaint!"

"Yes, ma'am?"

"I borrowed a book last week and it was horrible!"

"What was wrong with it?" asked the librarian.

"It had way too many characters and there was no plot whatsoever!"

The librarian nodded and said, "Ahh. You must be the person who took our phone book."

Passing an office building late one night, the blonde saw a sign that read, "Press bell for night watchman."

She did so, and after several minutes she heard the watchman clomping down the stairs. The uniformed men proceeded to unlock first one gate, then another, shut down the alarm system, and finally made his way through the revolving door.

"Well," he snarled, "what do you want?"

"I just wanted to know why you can't ring it yourself."

A blonde, a brunette and a redhead apply for a position at a large company.

The brunette went in first. The guy looked over her application and asked her one question: "How many D's are there in 'Bonanza'?"

The brunette replied, "None."

The interviewer replied, "OK, you may go into the next room for the next stage of the interviewing process."

The redhead went in next. The guy asked her the same question: "How many D's are in 'Bonanza'?"

She also replied, "None."

The interviewer replied, "OK, you may go into the next room."

The blonde went in and he asked her the same question: "How many D's are in 'Bonanza'?"

After counting on her fingers for a few minutes the blonde replies:"77."

The interviewer was shocked and asked her how she came up with 77.

She answered, "Dun da da dun da da dun da da dun dun da da..." (the Bonanza theme)...
