Riddle #3

Suppose there is only one barber shop in your town, and it employs two barbers. One of the barbers has a nice, neatly trimmed head of hair. The other's hair is a complete mess. You can't go outside of town to get a haircut from any other barber. Which of the two barbers should you go to and why?


Since there are only two barbers in town, it is safe to assume that they cut each other's hair. This being the case, you sit down with the barber with the messy hair.
