Dumb Blonde Law


Ananova reports that Hungary–land of the Gabor sisters–is set to debate a law banning jokes about dumb blondes.

[A] spokeswoman [for the ban]…said: "Blondes face discrimination in the job market, in the workplace when they get a job, and even on the streets.

"People are banned from discriminating against Jews, or blacks, so why not grant blondes the same protection."

[A] petition was handed to the equal opportunities minister Kinga Goncz asking her to investigate whether jokes about blondes fall into the same category as religious discrimination.

Whole thing here.

Reason's own easily offended (and offensive) Tim Cavanaugh surveyed the United States' always bullish anti-umbrage industry here.
