Dolly was once asked whether she was ever offended by dumb blonde jokes. "I'm not offended by dumb blonde jokes because I know that I'm not dumb," she coyly replied. "I also know I'm not blonde."
["I describe my look," Parton once declared, "as a blend of Mother Goose, Cinderella, and the local hooker" -- and on another occasion: "It takes a lot of money to make a person look this cheap!"]
[In 2003, blonde jokes were technically made illegal in Bosnia when new gender equality laws were passed enabling women to sue those who make jokes about their hair colour.]
