“Three blondes were driving in a car to Disneyland and they saw a sign that said Disney Left. They turned around and went home.”
“I think its funny. I learned it somewhere in high school. Thats pretty much it.”
The informant is a Los Angeles college student originally from Tampa, Florida. She is not blonde–she’s a brunette.
The joke is an example of blason populaire of the stereotype of blondes. Blondes are stereotypically considered dumb and this joke mocks them for that. However, unlike some blason populaire, the dumb blonde joke has become so widespread that it is okay not only for blondes to tell them, but all of society. It also uses the number three which is very important in American culture.
