Out Of The Mouths Of Babes
By Clancy O’Lafferty
A father walked into the barber shop
With his darlin’ young daughter in hand
The shop was full of old men who woke up
And they whispered of what they beheld
“What’s he doin’ in here on a Saturday morn
With his daughter it don’t seem right?
Should he not be out playin’ a round of golf
Or keepin’ his fishin’ line tight?
When his turn came time
In the chair he climbed for a haircut
And just as he planned
His daughter inquired and so childlike inspired,
“Is this all we’ve to do on rag time?”
This is a true story as told by a Master Barber. It really happened! The shop erupted in gales of laughter…the father turned into a beet!
