Joke - The Haircut

  • One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.'
    The florist was pleased and left the shop.
    When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was 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 tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop.
    The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you ' card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door.
    Then a congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The congressman was very happy and left the shop

    The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

    And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.
    As Margaret Thatcher said: Both politicians and [diapers] need to be changed often and for the same reason!

  • In a Station of the Metro
    The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
    Petals on a wet, black bough.

  • I first heard this as a Jesuit joke as in this link:

    https://aleteia.org/2017/12/29/so-a-franciscan-a-dominican-and-a-jesuit-go-into-a-barber-shop/

    A Franciscan goes into a barber shop to get a haircut. When he is about to pay, the barber tells him he doesn’t charge clergy. The Franciscan replies saying that, although poor and humble, he can afford a haircut, but the barber insists, and the Franciscan finally accepts.
    The next day there was a basket of fresh bread at the barber’s door, from the Franciscan priest.
    Some days later, a Dominican priest goes to the same barber. Again, when is about to pay, the barber tells him it is his custom not to charge clergy. The Dominican debates with the barber, arguing there is no reason for a free haircut, but the barber insists and the friar finally accepts.
    The next day, the barber found at his door a collection of theology books published by the Dominican Order.
    A few days later, a Jesuit comes to the same barber shop and gets his hair and beard done. When he goes to pay, the barber tells him the same thing he told the Franciscan and the Jesuit. The Jesuit tells him “I’m a teacher, and hence I’m not wealthy, but I can afford my haircuts.” The barber insists, and the Jesuit finally accepts.
    The next day, there were 10 Jesuits lined up at his door.

  • I heard the same joke before except the customers were a Protestant Pastor, a Catholic Priest and a Jewish Rabbi. As you can guess, at the end there were six rabbi at the door waiting for their free haircut.
