A florist walks in to a barber shop to get a hair cut and the barber says "I have to do community service so your haircut today is free". The florist says thank you and the next day the barber receives a dozen roses.
A policeman walks into the same barber shop to get a haircut and the barbers tells him the same thing. The next day the barber receives a dozen donuts.
That same day a Republican walks in to barber shop for a hair cut. The barber tells him the same thing. The Republican says thank you. The next day the barber receives a dozen books on how to get ahead in business.
A Democrat walks into the barber shop. The barber also tells him the cut is free. The next day a dozen Democrats show up for free hair cuts.
