The Haircut

Got this from a relative who lives in Illinois--that location will be more germane when you get to the end of the item.


The Haircut

One day a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the cut he asks about his bill and the barber replies, " cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week." The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber goes to open his shop the next morning 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 tries to pay his bill,the barber again replies, "I cannot accept money from you. I'm doingcommunity service this week." The cop is happy and leaves the shop. The 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 that day, a college professor comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replies, "I cannot acceptmoney 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 to pay his bill the barber again replies, "I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week." The Congressman is very happy and leaves the shop.

The next morning when the barber goes to open up, there are a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference betweenthe citizens of our country and the members of our Congress.

Only a dozen Congressmen??????

& don't forget that the next year the IRS got him for Tax evasion for failing to claim the thank you gifts on his return!

Not bad...the best jokes are the ones that have a basis in truth.
