The Latvian Association of Blondes (LAB) is doing its part to ensure their country has a robust economic comeback. Hundreds of blondes from around the country came to Riga, Latvia's capital, on Saturday to parade in pink and strut with their poodles in an effort to cheer up the struggling nation.

The theme this year "is 'pink and blonde' and includes a retro blonde competition and a Marilyn Monroe look-a-like contest, a Blonde Diva concert and a Pink party."

As LAB president Marika Gederte says, "We have to cheer people up. We know there is an economic crisis, but small things like a playground or a blonde parade can cheer up all the residents of Riga. Why not?"

Why not, indeed. We'll be keeping an eye Latvia's GDP to see if there's any noticeable growth.
