I think we all know by now the old and tired “dumb blonde” stereotype is best left in the past. Especially in this day and age, where people are blonde one minute, brunette the next and a sort of strange, how-is-this-trendy purple-grey soon after. Hair color is just hair color. But this isn’t really a joke about blondes, moreso one particular woman who happens to be blonde, and who might need to get her hearing checked. Or perhaps we can simply chalk this up to an awkward misunderstanding. After all, there must be a regional accent out there where porch sounds exactly like what she ended up painting, right? In any event, this comedy of errors in miniature is a quintessential gag in the long and storied tradition of “dad jokes.” Enjoy.
