actually i think that the term "ginger" might have come from Gilligan's island. One of the characters was named Ginger and she has very red hair. and strawberry blond probably came from the pinkish tint.
This cartoon drawing is interesting to me, and I could not help but notice the slow friend had blonde hair and wondered if anyone else picked up on that. I asked my brother a person with no idea what my project was even about and he immediately giggled and said "that dumb blonde joke wasn't funny" I then asked why does it have to be funny he thought about it shrugged his shoulders without anything left to say.
