Picture Post: Blonds Have More Fun - Part 1

And if I may interject a pet peeve, here: the word "blond/blonde" is French in origin, and though it has been in English long enough to not require italics, it is still gender-specific. A male person or object is spelled "blond" and a female person or object is spelled "blonde." And the noun "hair" is masculine in French, so a blonde lady will have blond hair. Just so's you know.
