A Blonde Walks Into a Bar...Ow!

How do you know a blonde has been using your computer?

There’s White Out on the screen.

Ok, ok, I apologize to all blondes…but, hey… it’s funny.

Why is it funny, though?

It’s funny because it reinforces a stereotype about blondes, which means we get it quickly.

Understanding stereotypes makes life simpler and more easily understood. They also lead us to make assumptions.

But, do some of the stereotypes we have about gender, race, age or culture make life better?

You know what happens when you assume things, don’t you?
