Here's a fun fact!!!
    #647398 - 11/22/12 08:15 AM (4 years, 17 days ago)

From Wikipedia:
        "The origin of the red and white barber pole is associated with the service of bloodletting and was historically a representation of bloody bandages wrapped around a pole.[2] During medieval times, barbers performed surgery on customers, as well as tooth extractions. The original pole had a brass wash basin at the top (representing the vessel in which leeches were kept) and bottom (representing the basin that received the blood). The pole itself represents the staff that the patient gripped during the procedure to encourage blood flow."

But then an even greater force emerged: The un! And the un un-nazi'd the world! Forever!

Barber and Doctor used to be the same profession, believe it or not.
