Blondes will have more fun...until the year 2202

The Times of London has an interesting article on how blondes quickly multiplied in Northern Europe 11,000 years ago. The quirkiest fact was at the very end of the story, though:
A study by the World Health Organisation found that natural blonds are likely to be extinct within 200 years because there are too few people carrying the blond gene. According to the WHO study, the last natural blond is likely to be born in Finland during 2202.
I hope that blond is a male, because if it is a female, she is going to end up being chased by about a billion young males. And what a nightmare it would be to be her dad as a thousand dates show up a night. A dad can only intimidate so many would be suitors at a time.
