Joke: A Blonde Couple Adopts a Baby
Although they proved not to be the smartest, this blond married couple certainly had the best intentions when they set up to the task of raising an adopted child from a far-away land.
These two wouldn’t be the first to confuse culture with ethnicity, but they did it in a spectacular way that will make you laugh out loud for their ingenuity. We found this brief but hilarious joke at Starts at 60, and we needed to share it with you all.
We certainly don’t believe that a person’s intelligence can be determined by the color of his or her hair, so this is just a bit of healthy humor inspired by the “dumb blond” stereotype that has its origin in pop culture.
While stars like Marilyn Monroe being type-casted as unintelligent in the ‘50s helped established the stereotype in American audiences, this is believed to have developed from a blonde French debutante in the 1700’s.
So, without further introduction, let’s sit back, relax, and enjoy this silly joke.
Sally and Ian, both blondes, were delighted when their long wait to adopt a child finally came to an end.
The adoption center informed them they had been selected as potential parents for a beautiful baby girl from China.
On the way home, they stopped at their local university and enrolled in night courses. After they’d filled out their forms, the registration clerk had a curious question.
“I’ve noticed you both said you wanted to learn Chinese. What made you want to do that?”
“That’s easy,” Ian replied. “We just adopted a baby girl from China and she will start to speak in about a year.”
“That’s right,” Sally added. “We want to be able to understand her when she speaks.
In this other joke’s case, an elderly woman beyond the age of childbearing surprised her doctor when she asked him to prescribe her birth control pills, and her motives to do so are guaranteed to make you burst into laughter.
