A Haircut in Horse Town, Part Deux

The Puzzler


RAY: Now my wife got the answer in one minute.

TOM: She did?

RAY: She did. And did any of your wives get the answer? Are you speaking to any of your wives?

TOM: No, but here's what just came to me. Nobody shaves the barber.

RAY: You got it. But why?

TOM: How the hell do I know?

RAY: Nobody shaves the barber, because the barber is a woman.

TOM: Get out! Wait a minute now, is a woman barber called a barberette?

RAY: The barberella. No, I don't know, I go to a woman barber and it's in a barbershop, so I think it's legit to call a woman who cuts men's hair a barber. Do we have a winner?

TOM: The winner this week is Carla Bowes from Alton, Missouri, and for having her answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Carla will get a 25-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at cartalk.com, with which she can get our new four-CD collection called, Four Perfectly Good Hours. As in you've wasted four perfectly good hours. These are four actual shows as they originally aired that we picked as some of our favorites, and you can have them all, Carla, for winning the puzzler this week. Is this your lucky day or what?

RAY: Um, maybe.
