Ladies who lunch

It wa my birthday on Tuesday and we went out for a family meal at lunchtime. The meal itself was good, as was the beer and the company and it snowed as well. First time I've taken my birthday off work for about ten years I think and the weather doesn't get any better in February does it?

Anyway one aspect of our lunch that fascinated me was that in a packed pub at around 2:15 there were only three men, including me, in the whole place and one of them was staff. Every table was taking with women eating and chatting away, not the usual retirement age either but women of all ages. I was trying to work out why this should be either a) a shock to me or b) a new social phenomenen when one of the ladies mobile phones rang: "Had to stop for the loo so I thought I'd have a coffee and get some of my paperwork done." Role reversal, all those years in the 80's and 90's when men would spend hours in the pub on 'business' and here is a lady doing exactly that. Of course basing a whole new theory on a sample size of one is a short route to madness but it's a start.

'Let's do lunch'...anyway, this joke was made for these times you describe:

A blind man enters a Ladies bar (or the pub you were in!) by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders a drink. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender: "Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?"

The bar immediately falls absolutely quiet. In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says:

"Before you tell that joke, sir, I think it is just fair - giving that you are blind - that you should know five things:
1. The bartender is a blonde girl.
2. The bouncer is a blonde girl.
3. I'm a 6 feet tall, 160 LB. blonde woman with a black belt in Karate.
4. The woman sitting next to me is blonde and is a professional weightlifter.
5. The lady to your right is a blonde and is a professional wrestler.
Now, think about it seriously, Mister. Do you still wanna tell that joke?"

The blind man thinks for a second, shakes his head and declares: "Nah, not if I'm gonna have to explain it five times".
