    Kind of like how all the Michael Jackson jokes came to be....blondes were making themselves into a joke. Not all blondes, but keep in mind that when blonde jokes originally caught on (early 90s I would dare to say) the bleach blonde and dying hair blonde was the thing to do. At least thats my perception, coming from a post 80s era. Generically, more women were going blonde.

    Blonde jokes are more of a joke against women than blondes.

    It's been around for as long as I've known. Long before Jessica Simpson or Britney Spears. Maybe it started from Marilyn Monroe or Playboy bunnies, but I really have no idea.

    I think it started because of jealously. I think people really are more attracted to blonde.
