I'm currently hard at work on my seventh Calamity Jayne Mystery. As some of you know, each one of my books opens with a 'dumb blonde' joke. Not just any dumb blonde joke, but a joke that is carefully selected to be consistent with a major element of that particular story. I'm always on the lookout for a good blonde joke. I recruit family, friends, and fellow authors to send me blonde jokes.
When I wrote for my former publisher, I always provided several blonde jokes just in case my editor didn't like (or get) the one I had chosen. That happened just once out of six books and I ended up having to go with a back-up blonde joke.
No sweat. I've got a million of 'em.
But my current book? It's presenting a bit of a challenge for me. You see, I need a blonde tandem bike (as in bicycle) joke. Or a tandem joke that can be made over into a blonde biker joke. So far, I've only found a couple and I'm not real gung-ho about either of them.
So, here's what I need from you. Below you'll find the blonde tandem biker jokes I'm considering so far. Once you've read them, tell me which you like best.
Or, better yet, post a really good tandem blonde biker joke so I'll have a better selection to choose from. If I end up using your suggestion, I'll acknowledge you in my book! (All jokes must be clean!) :)
Okay. Here are the ones I'm considering so far:
BLONDE BIKE JOKE NUMBER ONE
Two blondes are riding along on a tandem, when suddenly, the blonde on the front slams on the brakes, gets off and starts letting air out of the tires.
A blonde and her boyfriend were riding a tandem up a hill and having a difficult time.
"Phew, that was a brutal climb!" the boyfriend said, leaning over and breathing hard. "That climb was so tough and we were going so slow, I thought we were never going to make it!"
"Yeah," agreed the blonde. "Good thing I kept the brakes on or we'd have slid all the way back down!"
All righty. Weigh in. Which is less...sucky? Do you have a better one to contribute? I'd love to hear it!
Thanks! You're the best...!
