Bearding A Barber

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,

no, says the shaver; I'll give you a penny, and if that does not

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.
