Ai die blond is alweer besig!!!!

‘n Ou was aangekla van moord en het ‘n groot kans gestaan om die
elektriese stoel te kry. Sy broer vind toe uit dat daar ‘n blondine op die jurie
sou wees wat te vinde sou wees vir ‘n bietjie omkoopgeld. Hy sê toe aan die
blondine dat hy $10,000 sou betaal as sy die jurie kon oortuig om die
aanklag na strafbare manslag te versag. Die jurie was ‘n hele dag uit en kom
toe terug met ‘n vonnis van strafbare manslag. Ná die hofsaak gaan die
broer na die blondine se huis, sê dankie en betaal die $10,000. Die blondine
antwoord dat dit nie maklik was om die ander ouens te oortuig nie. Hulle wou
hom onskuldig bevind het.

A clever Blond? Ouch!!

A lawyer boarded an airplane in New Orleans with a box of frozen crabs and asked a blonde stewardess to take care of them for him.

She took the box and promised to put it in the crew’s refrigerator.

He advised her that he was holding her personally responsible for them staying frozen mentioning in a very haughty manner that he was a lawyer and proceeded to rant at her about what would happen if she let them thaw out.

Needless to say she was annoyed by his behaviour.

Shortly before landing in New York she used the intercom to announce to the entire cabin: “Would the gentleman who gave me the crabs in New Orleans please raise your hand?”

Not one hand went up …. so she took them home and ate them.

Two lessons here:

1. Lawyers aren’t as smart as they think they are.

2. Blondes aren’t as dumb as most folks think.
