Dedicated in blessed memory of Richard Allen Julis who made us laugh and made us better Jews.
 

A man and a little boy entered a barbershop together.

After the man received the full treatment – shave, shampoo, manicure, haircut, etc. – he placed little Moishie in the chair. "I have to step out," said the man. "I'll be back in a few minutes."

When little Moishie’s haircut was completed and the man still hadn't returned, the barber said, "Looks like your daddy's forgotten all about you."

"That wasn't my daddy," said Moishie. "He just walked up, took me by the hand and said, 'Come on, son, we're gonna get a free haircut!'"
