Blonde on a plane...

Blonde on a plane

A plane is on its way to Toronto, when a blonde in economy class
gets up and moves to the first class section and sits down.

The flight attendant watches her do this and asks to see her ticket.
 She then tells the blonde that she paid for economy class and that
she will have to sit in the back.

The blonde replies, "I'm blonde, I'm beautiful, I'm going to
Toronto, and I'm staying right here."

The flight attendant goes into the cockpit and tells the pilot and
the co-pilot that there is a blonde bimbo sitting in first class,
that belongs in economy and won't move back to her seat.

The co-pilot goes back to the blonde and tries to explain that
because she only paid for economy she will have to leave and return
to her seat.  The blonde replies, "I'm blonde, I'm beautiful, I'm
going to Toronto, and I'm staying right here."

The co-pilot tells the pilot that he probably should have the police
waiting when they land to arrest this blonde woman who won't listen
to reason.

The pilot says, "You say she is a blonde?  I'll handle this, I'm
married to a blonde. I /speak/ blonde."

He goes back to the blonde and whispers in her ear, and she says,
"Oh, I'm sorry." and gets up and goes back to her seat in economy.

The flight attendant and co-pilot are amazed and asked him what he
said to make her move without any fuss.

"I told her, "First class isn't going to Toronto"."

If it's not used by a native speaker it's not idiomatic. And idiom trumps grammar every time. Jack Wilkerson†
