Do You Need A Last Minute Gift ...

For the blond in your life ?

Disclaimer: This is humor ... just a funny piece I found on the Internet ... If you are a blonde, PLEASE do not take it personally ... No harm is intended.

OMG! It's a Keyboard for Blondes

Blondes have suffered decades of ridicule, but it's time they embrace the jokes. When it comes to a hot-pink boost of self-confidence (or at least a few good laughs), the Keyboard for Blondes may do the trick.

The all-pink keyboard swaps out standard keys with funnier, dumber key names. The backspace key now says "Oops!" and the entire row of function keys spells out USELESS KEYS. Hit the "$" sign and you get the sound of a cash register clinking.

Blondes can even get a little technical and use special keys that type out "OMG," "ALI" (Absolutely Love It!) or "XOXO." My favorite? The caps lock key now says: "Warning! size XXL letters."

Though this fully functional keyboard would be a great gift to poke some fun at your fair-haired friends, regular computer users may find it a bit challenging. However, like the completely blank Das Keyboard, the Keyboard for Blondes might help poor typists improve their skills, since the keys are 1) a distracting pink, and 2) no longer have the standard labels.

According to its manufacturer, European Trends, the keyboard has already been released in the U.K. to some success, and at $49.95 probably only a true blonde would purchase this novelty item. It's compatible with Mac, Windows and Linux. I know what Paris Hilton will be getting for Christmas.

that is hilarious!!

I just wanted to say thanks for the support! and I don't think the other comment had anything to do with yours. I wasn't offended by what you said, but rather touched. This is a tough issue for me and I really appreciate you leaving a comment!

Hilarious! And I've been called a blonde and a mom says I'm a dirty blonde :-) And I'm way too lazy to color my hair, so I'm stuck with this ambiguous color. Very cute!

Merry Christmas to you!
