Here you go:

I don’t even care if it was scripted and she was in on it. It made me laugh, and that counts for something these days.

  1. I can personally attest to the fact that one does not need to be blonde to blindly react to a prank when caught off guard. Perhaps not in a such a clueless fashion as her, but along those lines.

  2. Please tell me the lady is an actress. Please? Pretty please?

  3. “The lie detector test determined…that was a lie.”

  4. She can barely keep a straight face.

  5. Classic blonde joke with a classic blonde. I don’t think she was in on it.

  6. They also did a cut and a second take shortly after she appears.

  7. Most blonde jokes are retreads of Polish jokes.

    A man walks up to the store counter and says: “I’d like a Polish sausage, a large fry, and a large Coke.”

    The clerk asks: “Are you Polish?”

    The man says: “As a matter of fact I am, but I’m offended that you should ask me that. If I had ordered a gyros, would you ask me if I were Greek?

    The clerk says: “No.”

    The man continues: “If I had asked for a burrito, would you ask me if I were Mexican?”

    The clerk says: “No.”

    “Then”, demands the man, “why did you ask me if I were Polish when I asked for a Polish sausage?”

    And the clerk says: “Because this is a hardware store.”

  8. Polish jokes were definitely the most common form of humor in the neighborhood where I grew up in Detroit.

    I’d estimate that the local population was about 1/5 to 1/4 Polish.

    The Polish (and Greek) ethnic festivals downtown were one of the highlights of the summer.

  9. When I was a kid and visited my bro in Minnesota, the kids told Norwegian jokes because they were all Polacks, which is my Polack jokes didn’t go over so well. Good material wasted on ’em.

  10. Norwegian jokes?!

    What’ll they think of next?

  11. What’ll they think of next?

    Whitefish gelatinized in lye?

  12. Why does rhe Norwegian navy have barcodes on their ships?
    So they can scan-da-navy-in…

  13. A bit of subtlety is better:

    Why does the Norwegian navy have barcodes on their ships?
    So they can Scandinavian

  14. He is a magician who includes his wife in lots of videos. She does outsmart him sometimes.

  15. His reaction is what makes me think this was a prank, not a joint plan.

  16. Running French fries with ketchup through a table saw during lunch is a common carpenters joke.

  17. NK, what kind of wacked out hardware store doesn’t sell sausage sticks at the counter?

  18. If we’re talking Home Depots in several locations up in the combined ulb/nk/happyfeet footprint, several did pre-Pandemic have a concessionaire in the exit door foyer selling hot dogs, polish, burgers etc. The Polack in question needed to buy actual hardware or exit through the self-check stations to get to the hot dog stand.

    I do wonder about their fate in regard to looting, but then I am reminded about the following “ethnic” joke- what did the chainsaw say to the black guy?

  19. #17 — I had a carpenter joke, and I really nailed it.
