A man and a little boy entered a barbershop together. After the man received the full treatment - shave, shampoo, manicure, haircut, etc. - he placed the boy in the chair.
"I'm goin' to buy a green tie to wear for the parade," he said. "I'll be back in a few minutes."
When the boy's haircut was completed and the man still hadn't returned, the barber said, "Looks like your daddy's forgotten all about you." "That wasn't my daddy," said the boy. "He just walked up, took me by the hand and said, 'Come on, son, we're gonna get a free haircut!'"
The barber then called the police immediately.
It later transpired that not only had the man tried to get a free haircut he was a well known abuser.
A few days later he was cornered by an angry mob of barbers, unhappy he had not only stolen hair cutting services but also taking the child.
His body was found, his head shaved, under a bridge.
