> She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded:
> " Rome? Why would anyone want to go there? It's

> You're crazy to go to Rome ... So, how are you getting

> "We're taking Continental," was the reply.
> "We got a great rate!"
> "Continental?" exclaimed the hairdresser.
> "That's a terrible airline.

> So, where are you staying in Rome?"
> "We'll be at this exclusive little place over on

> "Don't go any further. I know that place.

> "It was wonderful," explained the woman,
> "not only were we on time in

> The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome

> "Well," muttered the hairdresser,
> "that's all well and good, but I

> "Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured

> Sure

> I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me."
> "Oh, really! What'd he say?"
> He said: "Where'd you get the crappy hairdo?"
