Subj:     How To Get A Close Shave (S74, S834)
          From: humorlist-digest V2 #157 on 98-06-28
      and From: virv on 1/4/2013

 A man enters a barber shop for a shave. While the barber
 is foaming him up, he mentions the problems he has getting
 a close shave around the cheeks.

 "I have just the thing," says the barber taking a small
 wooden ball from a nearby drawer.  "Just place this between
 your cheek and gum."

 The client places the ball in his mouth and the barber
 proceeds with the closest shave the man has ever experienced.
 After a few strokes the client asks in garbled speech.

 "And what if I swallow it?"

 "No problem," says the barber. "Just bring it back tomorrow
 like everyone else does."

Subj:     How Long Before I Can Get A Haircut (S71, S650)
          From: thebartend on 98-06-11 and 6/12/2006
      and From: LABLaughsAdult on 6/15/2009

 A guy sticks his head in the barber shop and asks "How long
 before I  can get a haircut?"

 The barber looks around the shop and says, "About 2 hours."

 The guy leaves. A few days later, the same guy sticks his
 head in  the door and asks, "How long before I get a haircut?"

 The barber looks around the shop full of customers and says,
 "About 2  hours."

 The guy leaves.  A week later, the same guy sticks his head
 in the shop and asks, "How long before I can get a haircut?"

 The barber looks around the shop an says, "About an hour and

 The guy leaves.  The barber looks over at a friend in the
 shop, and says, "Hey Bill, follow that guy and see where he
 goes." In a little while, Bill comes back into the shop
 laughing hysterically.

 The barber asks, "Bill where did he go when he left here?"

 Bill looked up and said, "To your house."

Subj:     A Vacation In Rome (S60, S810)
          From: Anaise on 98-03-24
      and From: ginafm on 6/6/2009

 A man walked in to Joe's Barber Shop for his regular haircut.
 As he  snips away, Joe asks "What's up?"

 The man proceeds to explain he's taking a vacation to Rome.

 "ROME?!" Joe says, "Why would you want to go there?  It's a
 crowded dirty city full of Italians!  You'd be crazy to go
 to Rome!  So how ya getting there?"

 "We're taking TWA," the man replies.

 "TWA?!" yells Joe. "They're a terrible airline.  Their planes
 are old, their flight attendants are ugly and they're always
 late!  So where you staying in Rome?"

 The man says "We'll be at the downtown International Marriot."

 "That DUMP?!" says Joe. "That's the worst hotel in the city!
 The rooms are small, the service is surly and slow and they
 are overpriced!  So whatcha doing when you get there?"

 The man says "We're going to go see the Vatican and hope to
 see the Pope."

 "HA! That's rich!" laughs Joe. "You and a million other people
 trying to see him.  He'll look the size of an ant.  Boy, good
 luck on THIS trip.  You're going to need it!"

 A month later, the man comes in for his regular haircut.  Joe
 says, "Well, how did that trip to Rome turn out?  Betcha TWA
 gave you the worst flight of your life!"

 "No, quite the opposite" explained the man. "Not only were we
 on time in one of their brand new planes, but it was full and
 they bumped us up to first class.  The food and wine were
 wonderful, and I had a beautiful 28 year old flight attendant
 who waited on me hand and foot!"

 "Hmmm," Joe says, "Well, I bet the hotel was just like I

 "No, quite the opposite!  They'd just finished a $25 million
 remodeling.  It's the finest hotel in Rome, now.  They were
 overbooked, so they apologized and gave us the Presidential
 suite for no extra charge!"

 "Well," Joe mumbles, "I KNOW you didn't get to see the Pope!"

 "Actually, we were quite lucky.  As we toured the Vatican, a
 Swiss guard tapped me on the shoulder and explained the Pope
 likes to personally meet some of the visitors, and if I'd be
 so kind as to step into this private room and wait, the Pope
 would personally greet me.  Sure enough, after 5 minutes the
 Pope walked through the door and shook my hand.  I knelt down
 as he spoke a few words to me."

 Impressed, Joe asks, "Tell me, please! What'd he say?"

 "Oh, not much really.  Just "Where'd you get that awful haircut?"

          From: LABLaughsClean on 8/16/2005
      and From: lubin100 on 4/2/2009

 A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to
 his customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world.  Watch
 while I prove it to you."

 The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters
 in the other,  then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do
 you want, son?"  The boy takes the quarters and leaves.

 "What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never
Later, when the customer leaves, he
sees the same young boy coming out of
the ice cream store.  "Hey, son!  May
I ask you a question?  Why did you
take the quarters instead of the
dollar bill?"

The boy licked his cone and replied,
"Because the day I take the dollar,
the game's over!"

Subj:     Bush And Clinton At The Barbershop (S362, S590)
          From: JBCARY1 on 1/2/2004

 (Also see 'Chief And Admiral Get Shaves' in SAILOR-MARINE)

 G. W. Bush and Bill Clinton somehow ended up at the same
 barbershop.  As they sat there, each being worked on by a
 different barber, not a word was  spoken.

 The barbers were both afraid to start a conversation,
 for fear it would turn to politics.

 As the barbers finished their shaves, the one who had
 Clinton in his chair reached for the aftershave.

 Clinton was quick to stop him saying,  "No thanks, my wife
 Hillary will smell that and think I've been in a whorehouse."

 The second barber turned to Bush and said, "How about you?"

 Bush replied, "Go ahead, Laura doesn't know what the inside
 of a whorehouse smells like."

Subj:     Man And A Boy Get Haircuts (S329)
          From: igiggle on 5/18/2003

 A man and a boy entered a barber's shop together.  After
 the man had received a shave and a haircut, he sat the
 boy in the chair and said, "I'm just going to run next
 door to pick up a few things from the supermarket.  I'll
 be back in a few minutes."

 When the boy's hair was cut and the man still hadn't
 returned, the barber said, "It looks like your dad's
 forgotten you."

 "That wasn't my dad," said the boy.  "He just walked up,
 took me by the hand and said, "Come on, we're going to
 get a free haircut."

Subj:     Early Haircut (Poem) (S201)
          From: JOELFALLON on 12/3/2000

 Acres of white tile. Six barbers standing by huge chairs
 smiling.  Dad nods to one who begins to smile less as he
 installs a child's seat.

 I'm lifted.  Then a band of cr?pe paper is put around my
 neck and a large striped sheet covers all but my head.

 Dad tells the barber what to do and pats me on the shoulder.
 Then he settles into a chair and lights a cigar.

 Millions of mirrors and millions of barbers.
 Millions of dads and millions of me.
 We're in a green glass box stretching forever getting
 smaller and smaller.

 The million barbers move together so do the million me's.
 "Don't squirm young man."  His fingers touch my shoulder
 without real menace - I guess because dad is there, - watching.

 I'm combed and clippered and scissored and combed again.
 And sprayed and brushed. And then -
 A mirror is held before my face.

 I don't know what to say.
 Dad says it for me.
 "He looks like a movie star."
 Then we go for ice cream.

 Barber shops have changed a lot.
 And so have I.
 Yet, when barbers ask me, "How would you like it?"
 I answer "Make me look like a movie star."

 One day a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the
 cut he asked about his bill and the barber replies: "I'm
 sorry, I cannot accept money from you; I'm doing community
 service this week"

 The florist is pleased and leaves the shop.  Next morning
 when the barber goes to open up there is a thank you card
 and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

 Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he goes to
 pay his bill the barber again replies: "I'm sorry, I can
 not accept money from you; I'm doing community service this

 The cop is happy and leaves the shop. Next morning when the
 barber goes to open up there is a thank you card and a dozen
 donuts waiting for him at his door.

 Later a Republican comes in for a haircut, and when he goes
 to pay his bill the barber again replies: "I'm sorry, I cannot
 accept money from you; I'm doing community service this week."

 Later that day, a college professor comes in for a haircut,
 and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replies,
 "I cannot accept money from you.  I'm doing community service
 this week."  The professor is very happy and leaves the shop.
 The next morning when the barber opens his shop, there is a
 'thank you' card and a dozen different books, such as "How to
 Improve Your Business" and "Becoming More Successful.

 "Then, a Congressman comes in for a haircut, and when he goes

Subj:     Riddle - The Two Barbers (S385b)
          From: BrainTeaaerCentral.com on 06/09/2004


 A business man was in a village for a meeting. He had time
 to spare before the meeting, so he decided to get a haircut.
 He looked at a street map and was surprised to find that
 there were only two barbers in town, right across the road
 from each other.  He walked across the village and came to
 the two barber shops.  He went into the first one and was
 shocked by the dirtiness and the hair everywhere.  The place
 was a mess!  He looked at the barber and the barber had a
 really messy haircut all in his face and uneven.  He went
 across the street to the other barber and saw the place was
 immaculate, clean and shining like new.  The barber was
 nicely dressed and had a dazzling haircut: it was perfect.
 However, the man walked across the street and got his haircut
 at the shabby barbers. Why?


 Since people can't cut their own hair and there were only two
 barbers in town, the two barbers must have cut each other's
 hair.  So, the poor haircut must have been performed by the
 clean barber. Therefore, the good haircut must have been
 performed by the messy barber.

          From: LABLaughsAdult on 6/8/2009
 During his monthly visit to the corner barber shop, this
 fellow asked his barber for any suggestions on how to treat
 his in-creasing baldness.  After a brief pause, the barber
 leaned over and confided that the best thing he'd come
 across was, er, female juices.

 "But you're balder than I am," protested the customer.

 "True," admitted the barber, "but you've gotta admit I've
 got one hell of a mustache!"
