Hundreds of readers have written to tell me how much they enjoyed the blonde jokes
in Frankly, My Dear and the dumb men jokes in
Sweeter Savage Love and
the Irish Proverbs in Love Me Tender.
You wouldn't believe the sources for those jokes: readers; my dental technician's
brother-in-law; an elderly writer acquaintance who overheard a joke in the supermarket
checkout line; one of my husband's stock brokerage clients; my sons; the on-line services;
email; and the Internet.
You must realize, of course, that there are some jokes my editor considered
unsuitable for mass market fiction. Others didn't fit into the historical context of the
books. And, in truth, there were just too many of them.
The wonderful thing about people with a sense of humor is they want to share their
chuckles with others. For this reason, I would like to share the jokes and proverbs that
never made it into my books.
If you are blonde, don't be offended. I'm blonde, too (sometimes, anyway). And,
really, you could substitute almost anything in place of blonde. If you are a dumb man, I
don't apologize. You won't understand the jokes anyway, or think that they apply to you.
<grin> Be forewarned, some are a little risqué. And if you are Irish, God bless you
for your wonderful innate sense of humor.
It's difficult to trace the origin of a particular joke which changes through many
incarnations over the Internet and in its retelling around the world. So, if I've
accidentally ripped off one of your original creations, please forgive. It is not my
intention to portray these jokes as my property.
