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.

As the robot began to cut his hair, it asked the man, “What’s your IQ, sir?”

“143,” the man replied.

Embarrassed by the fall, he climbed back up to continue working. Then he noticed his co-workers holding up hastily-made signs reading, 9.6, 9.8, and 9.4.
