A local barber shop installed a new robotic barber to take some off the pressure off the owner.
A fellow came in for a haircut and after being told about the “new barber” decided he would give it a try.
“143,” the man replied.
So the robot proceeded to make conversation about physics, astronomy, investments, insurance, and so on. The man
listened intently and said to the owner, “This has been an incredible experience. Your android companion has given me a great haircut and stimulating conversation. I will definitely be returning and recommend your shop to my friends and acquaintances.”
Later, another man who was waiting for a haircut stepped up to the robot’s chair, sat down and again, the robot asked this man for his IQ before beginning his haircut.
The man replied, “about 100.”
So the robot started talking about sports, beer and local activities. This man also enjoyed the experience and informed the owner by saying, “Wow! This is really cool.”
A third man stepped up to the robot’s chair, seated himself and the robot, as with the others, asked him, “What’s your IQ, sir?”
The man replied “I think it’s 30.”
The robot then said, “So, I understand you’re running in the next election…”
