An educational barbershop

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 donuts 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 can not 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.

THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Real estate mogul’s ‘radical solution’ to the global refugee crisis: “WHAT do you do with people the world doesn’t want? Give them an island all to themselves. That’s the radical new plan to solve the world’s refugee crisis being proposed by one man. From the US to Europe to Australia, the world is grappling with an unprecedented movement of people forced to flee their home countries due to conflict or persecution. It’s causing a massive headache for governments struggling to find a solution which balances humanitarian need with economic reality. That’s not good enough, argues real estate tycoon Jason Buzi. He’s come up with an outlandish plan to solve the global refugee crisis: create a new country for them. He proposes four options for where it could be located: carve off a sparsely populated area of a developed nation; purchase an uninhabited island from a country such as Indonesia or the Philippines; convince a sovereign, sparsely populated country such as Dominica to allow itself to be taken over; or to literally build a new island in international waters.”

Keystone helicopter Kops in Britain: “Police launched a major hunt involving a helicopter, armed response officers and a dog unit for a man brandishing a weapon in the dark – but when they got there the ‘suspect’ was just a gardner holding a rake. Stephen Hogan had been working late in his back garden with friend Wayne Dodd when police swooped on their quiet neighbourhood in Christchurch, Dorset. They had earlier received a 999 call from a member of staff at the Avondene nursing home two doors down who reported seeing a man in a T-shirt outside holding up what appeared to be a weapon. Officers attended Mr Hogan’s bungalow home at about midnight after their colleagues in the National Police Air Service helicopter circling above saw some activity in his back garden. After making their way through the property the two policemen found Mr Dodd holding up a rake from where he had been helping to landscape an unkempt area of Mr Hogan’s garden under an external light. Officers satisfied themselves that the so-called offender was 43-tear-old Mr Dodd and the ‘weapon’ was the garden rake.”

Organisers of village fruit and veg show have so few entries they allow people to enter food bought from the supermarket: “It is a tradition as British as red telephone boxes and morris dancing. Once a year, in the village hall or in a marquee on the green, locals gather to proudly enter their homemade jam or home-grown veg for judging in the annual show. Yet this cornerstone of rural life is, it seems, under threat as fewer locals enter such competitions. And so desperate is the situation that one village on the borders of the Cotswolds has even tried to drum up interest – by allowing residents to enter fruit and veg bought from supermarkets. The fruit and vegetable display competition is known as the Davenport Vernon Shield, and was described on the show’s website as: ‘A chance to buy your vegetables on a Friday, show them on Saturday and eat them on Sunday … goods need not to have been grown by the exhibitor.’”

Voyeur uses drone to spy on nudists: “Naturists on one of Britain’s most popular nudist beaches fear they are being spied on by a voyeur flying a drone. A number of naked sunbathers were left angry when they were buzzed by a radio-controlled drone that flew up and down the famous Studland nudist beach in Dorset. They feared a camera was attached to the device and that the operator, who could not be seen, had the bare cheek to take some shots of the bathers in a state of complete undress. Officials are looking into the matter and have stepped up patrols in case the drone operator returns. ‘The machine went along the whole stretch of Studland so the owner could not be identified. For obvious reasons, naturists need to know who it was.’ Studland nudist beach is a public space but the users enjoy some privacy as it is obscured by sand dunes on one side and has the sea on the other.

Council workers are slammed for leaving Tarmac roads with penis shapes: “Council workers have been slammed for leaving ‘penis-shapes’ in the road after they tried to cover old markings with the wrong paint. Residents say they are disgusted by the mess left behind by Staffordshire County Council workers, who had been using a preventative treatment to try and maintain the road in Tamworth. But the material reacted with paint that had been recently scraped from the road, leaving it covered in phallic-shapes and other offensive-looking gestures.
One angry resident, Graham Wood, who has lived in his detached home for about 11 years, was away when the work started in June but returned to the ‘complete mess’. ‘They’ve scraped off the old road markings and painted over it, but the stuff they used reacted with the white lines. ‘The paint melted the white lines underneath it so, as vehicles drove over the road, it went all over the place.”
