Navy Training Video For Dating Brunettes

This hilarious training video put out by the Navy in 1967 gives officers advice on how to date brunettes... It provides 10 approaches for how to deal with brunettes.


  1. Do show up on time. A good looking brunette won’t wait around forever.
  2. Do treat her as an equal; she likes that.
  3. Do order her food for her.
  4. Do open doors for her.
  5. Do offer her assistance when walking to the car, or into a restaurant.
  6. Don’t be late.
  7. Don’t hold her coat up too high when you assist her with putting it on.
  8. Don’t force her to shake anyone’s hand, let her offer her hand.
  9. Don’t walk on the inside of the sidewalk, instead walk curb side.
  10. Don’t forget, ladies go first — she must always precede you.

Except when entering a biker bar or other dicey location. I suggest the guy go first and check out the situation :-)

Well, feminists may loathe chivalry but women appreciate it. AmIrite, ladies?

You see you don't need these guidelines for blonds because they are stupid whores.

(I'm kidding ed...I'm kidding calm down)

So, was the navy signaling a preference by choosing brunettes?

Lem said...

It brings that video Chick posted to mind. The dating chart video.

Of course Lem. A man of taste and refinement always chooses a burnettes.

Famous burnettes. Natalie Wood. Sophia Loren. Audrey Hepburn. Mary Tyler Moore. Sophia Veragas. Selma Hayak. Jacki O. Elizabeth Montgomery.

Famous blonds. Marilyn. Madonna. Courtney Love. Joan Blondell. Lady Gaga. Charo.

You see where I am going with this?

Blondes have more fun.

True, everyman wanted to marry Mary Tyler Moore not Monroe. But after a while how much fun was MTM having? Marilyn on the other hand....


Jeesh, just writing that made me feel dirty.

Plus, you're not supposed to say anything even mildly salacious about Marilyn because she's one of those beloved ones who has reached canonical status, like Elvis, and must not be criticized!

Am I the only one with such strictures written in his head? Where's Freud?!

There is an old expression. It was fun while it lasted. That is the essence of your blond experience. Half the time it is a dye job anyway. Dead giveaway to stay away. Just sayn'

I mean we all can point to bleached blonds that we know that are terrible, horrible people.
Courtney Love for example. Best to stay away from a blond. Even the real blonds just want to take you into a cornfield. Who needs that?

When I was in undergrad school, one of my buds was in the Naval ROTC unit and he told me about this. I was a tad skeptical at the time, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

Joe McGrath, wherever you are, you were telling the truth and I should have believed you.

I'm more redheads and brunettes. At least when I was younger.

Blondes have more fun because they are dirty whores.

Say that to The Blonde and I will send flowers to your funeral. I will even give you a eulogy (believe it or don't, I'm legendary for my eulogies)

How do you keep a blonde busy?

Write "flip" on both sides of a piece of paper.
