Sorry, but this Jokes author is implying Blondes are dumb but could the author of this joke may be her intellectual equal.
An interesting hypothesis.
But as a person of the blond type myself, I have a different take on the "story".

The tourists were from the USA and were being a bit loud and crass, as is sometimes the case with their fellow countrymen when travelling abroad.

The blonde waitress was student of mathematics at the nearby University of North Wales in Bangor. A bit of a Rachel Riley* sort of person, who was doing a part-time job to earn a few quid.
When asked the all important question:
"How do you pronounce:"

The devil made her give the facetious answer...

I don't think you found the error in the original story either.
There are No waitresses at Burger Kings - only cashiers.

Well, I never would have worked that one out.
I am not sure if I have ever been in a Burger King.
I was once in a place, late at night in the middle of Glasgow, it may have been a BK or a McD, I cannot remember it was many years ago.

What I do remember is that I was hoping that no one who knew me would walk into the place and find me there.
Unlikely as Glasgow is about 180 miles from here, but you cant be too careful!

I used to visit a Wimpey in the middle of Glasgow. There were specks of oil floating on the coffee. It wasn't good coffee, either. For some reason I can't fathom, I kept going back. They don't have waitresses either.

Don't worry about the specks of oil in your coffee.

The coffee you drink comes from beans (coffee beans). Beans are loaded with oils that are partially soluble in hot water. As the water cools, the oils separate and float in the water. Small batches of coffee made with a paper filter don't show this much because the oils cling to the filter. Percolated coffee or commercial size coffee machines with paper filters will make coffee that appears to be more "oily". The oily layer contains a high concentration of caffeine because caffeine has poor solubility in water.

This wasn't the film of coffee oil you get (I make fresh coffee every day so I know), this was droplets of cooking oil. Uhg.

Son: no dad, I want a motorbike

These look familiar but in case they haven't been posted.
Husbands and wives can't communicate
1. AVOCADOS
A wife asks her husband, "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk, and if they have avocados, get 6.
A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk. The wife asks him, "Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?"
He replied, "They had avocados."
If you're a woman, I'm sure you're going back to read it again! Men will get it the first time.
------------------------------ -----------------
2. WATER IN THE CARBURETOR
WIFE: "There is trouble with the car. It has water in the carburetor."
HUSBAND: "Water in the carburetor? That's ridiculous "
WIFE: "I tell you, the car has water in the carburetor."
HUSBAND: "You don't even know what a carburetor is. I'll check it out.
Where's the car?
WIFE: "In the pool."
3. STATISTIC
THIS IS A FRIGHTENING STATISTIC , PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST WORRISOME IN RECENT YEARS.
25% of the women in this country are on medication for mental illness.
That's scary. It means 75% are running around untreated.
4. HE MUST PAY
Husband and wife had a tiff. Wife called up her mom and said, "He fought with me again, I am coming to live with you."
Mom said, "No, darling, he must pay for his mistake. I am coming to live with you."
------------------------------ -----
5. TODAY'S SHORT READING FROM THE BIBLE
From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."
Then he made the earth round, and He laughed and laughed and laughed .
