"Barbershop conversations are the incontrovertible proof that heads are there to hold hair.

"When I get my hair cut I worry the barber will cut through one of my thoughts.

"It is always one's fault when one gets cut by the barber's razor. I, for example, cringe when the barber talks about politics; the others get nervous when he doesn't. In neither case is it his fault when someone gets cut."

— Karl Kraus, Dicta and Contradicta, 41
