Thousands of blondes gathered for a unique event designed to shatter stereotypes, and the arena was buzzing with enthusiasm. With a microphone in hand, their commander addressed the audience while standing in the middle of the stage.
He said firmly, “We are all here today to show the world that blondes are not stupid. I need a volunteer, please.
A determined young lady carefully pushed her way through the swarm of blonde-haired people to the platform. With a smile, the leader enquired, “What is 15 plus 15?”
Deep in meditation, the blonde rubbed her brow for what seemed like an eternity. She finally said, “Eighteen!”
There was a collective sigh of disappointment from the audience. To everyone’s shock, however, 80,000 blondes suddenly began yelling, “Give her another opportunity! Give her one more opportunity!”
The leader rubbed his head in confusion over the response. With widespread media coverage and a sizable crowd in attendance, he understood that the stakes were high. The man groaned and acquiesced, saying, “Well, since we’ve gone to the trouble of getting 80,000 of you in one place, and we have the worldwide press here, I guess we can give her another chance.”
“What is 5 plus 5?” he said as he turned to face the blonde.
The blonde appeared to be lost in thought once more as it took her about 30 seconds to say, “Ninety?”
The audience became increasingly disappointed as the leader became utterly perplexed. The 80,000 other blondes in the stadium shouted and waved their hands as they chanted, “GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE! GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE.
The leader paused, unsure of whether continuing would be better or worse. He nevertheless grudgingly said, “OK! OK! One last chance: “What is two plus two?”
The blonde appeared to be concentrating very hard as she closed her eyes. Silence prevailed for one whole minute. Eventually, she opened them and asked, “Four?”
All 80,000 blondes leaped to their feet, waved their arms, stamped their feet, and simultaneously yelled, “Give her another chance! “, causing mayhem to break out across the stadium. Give her one more opportunity!”
In the end, the incident may not have demonstrated that blondes were outstanding mathematicians, but it did highlight the strength of community and the will to fight prejudice and stand up for one another.
