I agree but it seems Prince William didn't pay that, he found the very idea laughable.
However i have known women pay that sort of money for a hair do, going to Harrods or Vidal Sassoon or the like.

The hair to the throne would, apparently. I haven't been to a barber for decades - I use clippers at home - so I've no idea what an average price is nowadays. I think it was two groats when I last had my hair cut at a barbers.

Given his use of the pun in his post above mine, I assumed that Sprocket hadn't. Fair enough - we can't read every single post.

Perhaps I'm just a stickler for attribution, though we don't have copyright issues here. :D

One advantage of my going to a Pakistani barber here is that his Spanish is limited so I'm not assailed with endless chatter, as often happens with barbers. The soothing silence is only interrupted by the snipping sound of the scissors...

No - his Spanish doesn't extend to that! :D

Forgot Greg had used that pun in the OP. Sorry.

An ancient Roman manuscript of jokes included the following:
Barber: How would you like your hair cut?
Customer: In silence.

Not exactly pmsl material, but at least you can see why it's meant to be funny, unlike some of the other jokes from the same MS quoted in the TV programme where it was mentioned (possibly QI - I can't remember).
