There's no word for blondes that's specifically insulting in the same way as "fag", "nigger" or "paki" is insulting to the target and that's why blonde jokes can be used in Canada while homophobic or racist terms cannot.

Mind, I put this more succintly upthread.

And, before you all jump on the "PC gawn mad" bandwagon, there is a difference between being PC and treating people with a modicum of decency and respect.

As far as I am concerned, anyone who thinks this sort of "humour" is funny is a bit of a ****.

I think you need a sense of humour transplant as obviously you have none.

The joke is, its a play on words, a fag in the US is a homosexual, a fag in the UK is a cigarette, funny, see, gettit.... ?? obviously not.. (not gay are you?.. probably not as a someone gay would also see the funny side)..

Fag in the US is a term for being gay, a queer, limp wristed.. why would a gay person be offended for being called ... erm... gay ??

I can honestly say mate, you have a problem.
