Is Kuchma a "Dumb Blonde?"
BLONDE women perform intelligence tests more slowly after reading jokes which play on their supposed stupidity, researchers in German say. Eighty women of various hair colours were given a series of psychometric tests. Before, half read "dumb blonde" jokes, such as: Why do blondes open yoghurt pots while still at the supermarket? Because it says "open here" on the lid. Jens Foerster, a psychologist from the International University at Bremen, said: "No blonde woman believes she is stupid, but after exposure to negative social stereotypes about them, the fair-haired participants performed significantly more slowly."
Seemingly off topic, but seeing this item this evening made me think about the constant "stick" approach to Ukraine. Keep telling them they're bad, and they'll prove you right.
