No matching collar and cuffs

The latest employment law lunacy case in Britain has been brought by a woman against her former male boss. She wants him to pay her 4 million pounds for calling her a dumb blonde and for making dumb blonde jokes. He has to argue to a three-woman employment tribunal that “It was said entirely as a joke, it was never intended as an insult”. Frit thinks little of his chances, even despite the fact that, whilst it might not be easy to tell from the photograph if the individual in question is actually dumb, it’s very easy to tell she’s not actually blonde.

Frit has already purchased some shoe polish with the intention of blacking up and suing the first person he hears make a joke that includes the word golliwog.
