Jests Home




A HIGHLANDER, who sold brooms, went into a barber's shop in Glasgow to
get shaved. The barber bought one of his brooms, and, after having
shaved him, asked the price of it. Tippence, said the Highlander. No,

satisfy you, take your broom again. The Highlander took it, and asked
what he had to pay. A penny, says Strap. I'll gie ye a baubee, says
Duncan, and if that dinna satisfy ye, pit on my beard again.
