Poor Image: Brainless Beauty get usage counts

The image has been in the article since 2009 and it really isn't that good. I see a blonde woman in a bikini holding a megaphone. Is she beautful, definitely. Though it's pretty vague (emphasis on vague) on her lack of intelligence. I say Keep Until Better Image Suggestion for now.

Picture for reference:

I can't think of anything good for a signature.

Seems fairly textbook JAFAAC. I can vouch for her absentmindedness, but if I'd never watched Histeria before, it'd be a bit presumptuous to assume it.

Quality's pretty bad, too.

The Dumb Blonde stereotype makes it clear to me that she's not exactly intelligent, along with her posture and expression. Keep Until Better Image Suggested, but the image doesn't have to be much better.
A typical Keep Until Better Image Suggested where it shouldn't be that hard to come up with one.
The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.

Either Lori or the current pic works for me.
Special trousers. Very heroic.

I never watched Histeria!, and the only problem I've ever had with the current image is the quality. The Three's Company image isn't bad either. Not a big improvement, not much worse. The quality is a little higher though.
serial tweaker, sorry
How about Stacy from Drop Dead Diva? April Bowlby plays another brainless beauty on Two and a Half Men as well, though I couldn't find a good still of her character Kandi.

edit: Here's a confused Kandi.

please don't capitalize my handle. I just don't like it.
The first one is best.

First does not look brainless. Second has a dumb expression but it's pretty mediocre. Suzanne is okay, but not great.

I'm thinking of a variation of the current image of All Women Are Lustful.

The image has 2 panels. The 1st panel shows a beautiful woman. The 2nd image shows an X-ray or the woman, pointing out that the woman has no brain.

(Yes, a bit of a pun here, but most people should be able to get it. It's pretty much universal.)

What about Elle Woods [1] or [2]?

[up]Elle isn't dumb—she's closer to Genius Ditz, so it would very misleading to use her.

So far, I like Three's Company and Two and a Half Men best, but I think we can do better. Surely there's something out there illustrating a classic dumb-blonde joke, like putting white-out on the computer screen, or shoes that say "toes go in first".
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

[up][up] The second link isn't working, and I agree with [up] that she fits Genius Ditz better than this.

Illustrating a classic dumb-blonde joke would be focusing more on the brainless than beauty or not showing the beauty at all. I think the reason they choose the origanal picture is that walking around in her bathing suit makes her look shallow.

Can we get a picture of a beuty DOING SOMETHING STUPID?

Like - Pushing a pull door, Using a bar of soap as a phone?

I dunno - any ideas?
 
How about this?
