No Speak English!

A beautiful German woman married an American gentleman born in Virginia and they lived happily ever after in his home town.

The poor lady was not very proficient in English, but did manage to communicate with her husband. The real problem arose whenever she had to shop for groceries.

One day, she went to the butcher counter and wanted to buy chicken legs. She didn’t know how to put forward her request, so, in desperation, clucked like a chicken and lifted up her skirt to show her thighs. Her butcher got the message and gave her the chicken legs.

Next day she needed to get chicken breasts, again she didn’t know how to say it, so she clucked like a chicken and unbuttoned her blouse to show the butcher her cleavage. The butcher understood again and gave her some chicken breasts.

On the 3rd day, the poor lady needed to buy sausages. Unable to find a way to communicate this, she brought her husband to the store…

Set up a small table, and PLAY – see what happens.     Don’t worry about being right or wrong…just PLAY.

Stereotyping Blondes

James' Funnies

A young ventriloquist touring the clubs is doing a show in a small town in Arkansas. With his dummy on his knee, the goes through his usual dumb blonde jokes when a blonde woman in the 2nd row stands on her chair and shouts: “I’ve heard enough of your stupid blond jokes!
“What makes you think you can stereotype women that way? What does the color of a person’s hair have to do with her worth as a human being?
“It’s guys like you who keep women like me from being respected at work and in the community, and from reaching our full potential as a person because you and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against, not only blondes but women in general. And you do it all in the name of humor”.
Quite taken aback, the embarrassed ventriloquist begins to apologize.
But the blonde yells again, “You stay…
