One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he
asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money
from you, I'm doing community service this week.'
The florist was pleased and left the shop.
When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a
'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.
Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill,
the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing
community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop.
The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank
you' card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door.
Then a Member of Congress came in for a haircut, and when he went to
pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from
you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Member of Congress
was very happy and left the shop.
The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen
Members of Congress lined up waiting for a free hair cut And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between
the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.
Gracious words are like a honey comb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.  Proverbs 16:24

Sounds about right.

It's a good joke, but I've been to the US congress.  They have their own barber and they already get free haircuts and their own cafeteria and they get free meals, and their own parking garage where they get to park for free and their own office that they don't have to pay rent on, and their own staff paid for by us as well.  They wouldn't be lined up, they would just go to their own personal barber paid for by us...
