 Two Barbers (Posted on 2002-12-27)
A Man is visiting a town and decides to get his hair cut.

He asks a boy where he can find a barber and the boy says there are only two barbers in the town.

The boy shows him the first one. Inside the barber has hair all over the floor, dirt everywhere and long uneven hair.

He goes to the other one and sees the barber is dressed in pristine clothing, well cut, and his floors are well swept and clean.

The man changes his mind and goes to the other barber.

Why does he do this?

 Submitted by Matthew Bobbins Rating: 3.7333 (15 votes) Solution: (Hide) Since there are only two barbers in the town, it is obvious that they must be cutting each other's hair. Therefore, the barber with the good cut must have gotten it from the other guy, whose hair is messy, while giving him the bad haircut. Therefore, the barber with the messy hair must be better at what he does.
