Smile for the day...

Can't think why, but our vicar, the Rev Mark Warrick - that's him in the trilby - has drawn my attention to the following amusing story he has published in the latest issue of the Deeping St James parish magazine:

A priest walked into a barber shop in London. After he got his haircut, he asked how much it would be. The barber said, "No charge. I consider it a service to the Lord."

The next morning, the barber came to work and there were 12 prayer books and a thank you note from the priest in front of the door.

Later that day, a police officer came in and got his hair cut. He then asked how much it was. The barber said, "No charge. I consider it a service to the community."

The next morning, he came to work and there were a dozen doughnuts and a thank you note from the police officer.

Then, a MP came in and got a haircut. When he was done he asked how much it was. The barber said, "No charge. I consider it a service to the country."

The next morning, the barber came to work and there were 12 MPs in front of the door.
