BOSNIA -- Blonde jokes, said to be immensely popular in this tiny country, have been outlawed by passage of a gender equality law.

Blondes throughout the country declined to comment until they could determine the definition of the word "gender." (Truckerex@wmconnect.com)

However, "stupid bitches" are still fair game. (StanYan1@aol.com)

Q. What do you call a blonde in Bosnia?
A. It (skibip@aol.com)

The law almost dyed when it came up for vote. (NITRAMXXX@AOL.COM)

It's the worst case of hair-esy the world has ever seen. (TenaciousFiend@yahoo.com)

However, fat jokes are still appropriate because they can be applied to either gender. (Ososexilexi@aol.com)

I'm a blonde myself, and it's nice to see those Canadians are catching on! (williemelmoth@aol.com)

This bill was pushed through largely through the influence of the Prime Minister's Irish mistress - Ms. Fluffy McHonkers. (Omegamagezero@aol.com)

In related news, the Loyal Brotherhood of Bosnian Carpenters and Woodworkers is seeking a nationwide ban on "knock-knock" jokes. (joseph.blevins@verizon.net)

The concept of "blonde" as a gender could lead to some interesting porn. (seeker@vcoms.net)

The Bosnians should be balkan at that! (Baitsmotel6@aol.com)

In a nation plagued by war, ethnic cleansing and poverty, the Bosnian government has made blonde jokes its #1 priority! That's reassuring. (joseph.blevins@verizon.net, MooseSpeak@earthlink.net)

So it looks like it's finally safe for Jankath to go there. (MooseSpeak@earthlink.net)

...And I can prove it. True story: I was explaining to a group of 6th graders how learning is more efficient when many areas of the brain are used (i.e., using both hands for hand signs as we chant/sing solfege syllables as we learn to sightread music.) This one little guy held up his hand and wistfully said, serious as can be with a totally mystified look on his face, "Wow....you're so smart.......but...but you're blond." The little girl beside him immediately replied, "Yeah, because she's not a real blonde." Apparently, the kids have been totally blonde brain-washed.

Lemme get this straight. Are blondes the majority gender or the minority gender? (ldolphin34@hotmail.com)

We have the Brady Bill; they have the Barbie Bill. (joseph.blevins@verizon.net)

Humanitarian aid has begun pouring in for Bosnian humorists left jokeless by the blonde bombshell. (TerriKlein@aol.com)

But now the blondes are worried that the other two genders--redheads and brunettes--will file a suit to be more equal. (mrsbrak@fastmail.fm)

In the future, all blonde jokes are to be forwarded to neighboring HAIRzegovina. (HerzogVon@aol.com)

Today's winner, scalpel@aol.com (no pun intended) knows a self-fulfilling prophecy when he sees one:

Further proving that everyone in Bosnia is a dumb blonde. (scalpel@aol.com)
