The Cue Ball

Clipart image of a bald man

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 13 January 2022, moot.

In the barber’s, a fellow called Peter,
Was asked what style of hair would be sweeter,
But the question was moot,
Pete was bald as a coot,
Said, “I’ve really just come to read meter”

  1. lol when Canberra’s lockdown ended in October there were queues outside all the hairdressers and barbers … like sheep to the shearing. But I, like Peter, was bald as a friar bird and was therefore saved a masked wait… and possibly a raised bill.

  2. I have been barber and hairdresser for my husband and me since 2020. I first thought “Meter” was a magazine or newspaper, but since it was not capitalized, I got it, and it is definitely funnier that way, LOL.
