The Rabbi and the Barber

A Buddhist monk goes to a barber to have his head shaved. “What should I pay you?” the monk asks. “No price, for a holy man such as yourself,” the barber replies. And what do you know, the next day the barber comes to open his shop, and finds on his doorstep a dozen gemstones.
That day, a priest comes in to have his hair cut. “What shall I pay you, my son?” “No price, for a man of the cloth such as yourself.” And what do you know, the next day the barber comes to open his shop, and finds on his doorstep a dozen roses.
That day, Rabbi Finklestein comes in to get his payoss [sideburns] trimmed. “What do you want I should pay you?” “Nothing, for a man of God such as yourself.” And the next morning, what do you know? The barber finds on his doorstep — a dozen rabbis!
